    Had someone come in and ask my manager about work experience. I could hear them talking and as soon as my manager said a half 9 start the guy basically begun complaining saying it's too early and could he come in after 12. He annoyed me so much, as if he could actually do that in a real job, half 9 is not early!! Makes me angry :mad:

    I work from home much of the time, and for the past 4 years, there have been various building works going on in our (normally very quiet) neighbourhood, which can be very disruptive when I'm trying to concentrate - noise, dust, contractors' vehicles blocking the lane: you name it. At the beginning of the year, it finally stopped and peace reigned supreme.

    Now another set of neighbours are having some landscaping done in their garden which, for the past four weeks, seems to have involved mainly cutting up paving stones with an angle grinder. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr; Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh etc...... :mad::mad::mad::(:(:(

    I'm getting to the stage where I am getting fed up! Positive about my condition 80% of the time but the other 20% sucks. Feel like every time I post, it's negative although I don't mean it to be.

    Want to try another diet, yes I'm doing well but I am bored and don't think I can sustain, only problem is there is hardly anyone doing a different diet so would feel alone.

    I believe my condition is related to my weight and I lost 2 stone on a different eating plan that I know works a few years back. I want to go back but scared I'll undo all the work. Husband is supportive but I can see the strain

    SIGH, back under my rock I go!

    No need to hide. I think we all feel like that from time to time. Perhaps you could start a new thread for this change of diet? Maybe there are others doing it too? I need to change things around from time to time too. Who knows, you might help even me to start losing weight again!

    Thanks @zand I did think about it but I don't think it will get good reception and there is a thread in the good section somewhere but unfortunately not many people have answered. I'm not sure what's egging nee in so to speak, the fact that I know I can lose weight on it or having to accept that I can never go back!

    Having days that, I wonder how much damage a week on the plan would do with the weight I've already lost...hmmmmm

    Mrsmac - Sometimes you just have to try things. The thing about diabetes is that everyone is different.

    I was lucky in that I have always been able to eat some food that others can't - like rice and oats, in relatively modest portions, and now I can eat more of those foods than when first diagnosed. So, the diet you fancy trying may work very well for you. Of course, it could quickly show to be unsuitable; but, provided you were testing, you would know why you couldn't really follow that route for the longer term. It seems to me that if it's eating away at you, then you have to give it a go. If you don't, do you think it'll nag on at you, until you rebel is some form?

    I'm not telling you what to do, and clearly I have no idea how generally aligned your preferred way of eating might be to diabetes, but I'm being devil's advocate ad trying to find a positive viewpoint whereby you would learn from the experience, if it didn't work out for your diabetes.

    Diabetes is the long game, so if you "invest" a couple of weeks, then have to modify things, it's unlikely to be a massive deal. I would say that it would be extremely important to be testing throughout though.

    Honestly, I don't think many would want to risk it, sorry for seeming elusive. I'll create a post in the diet section and invite you guys to comment, see what you think

    Ordered some clothes a couple of days ago and got a text today to say they had arrived and were in a safe place. Got home at 4:30pm to find the delivery driver had put the parcel by my front door in full view. Extremely annoyed as anyone could have stolen it!!! :mad:

    At least my other parcel made it to a safe place over the back gate, just wondering why that one wasn't. Extremely frustrating.

    I think the porch sounds preferable to my last delivery Nicola. Dear delivery man dropped it into the wheelie bin so it was covered in all sorts of garbage. Yuk!
