    I do have a half unit pen ^=^ However the specifications say that you shouldn't give a half unit from it as it isn't accurate under 1 unit I believe. Which I was kinda like... Uh right? I might try give myself 1 unit anyway, I *Think* that will bring me down to about 6.

    @Robinredbreast I hope all is okay with your eye! Rooting for you ^=^

    I took 1/2 unit last night and woke up on a 4.8, any more and it would of been very low, hypo) !! With diabetes, you can do the same thing all the time, but you wont get the same outcome, I call it the complicated diabetes fairy at work :rolleyes: Thank you, off to GP at 10.30.

    Update on eye, nice GP phoned my local hospital's emergency eye clinic and I was seen at 1pm. Dr examined my eye and said there was a scratch, so I have been given a an ointment to apply 3 times a day for 5 days. No work today, but hopefully back to normal tomorrow.

    The 4.1 is too low for me Paul, would prefer it to be 5 or above.

    It did. Turns out I have Dyspraxia! ^=^ My BG has been pretty good as well. Sat at 5.6 for most of the day and only spiked to 9 after my lunch. Going to see what dinner did to me soon :)
