    Trouble with the broomstick’s MOT so been away for a bit. You’d think a lovely carbon neutral bunch of twigs would pass first time.
    I really don’t like bugs that evolve more swiftly than my self-destructive immune system.
    Love the pic of your friend’s super-personality baby @Antje77. I find all new life astounding, however much the science explains the process.

    @Diakat LOL, I am a very strict vegan!! So I don't eat that candy!!!! I had another new pod failure, so my numbers shot up and I didn't catch it right away as we were setting up decorations. So I gave myself a rage bolus shot and knew it might catch up to me.
    It did right in the middle of streams of kids and my husband making another candy run. I had to dash in and guzzle some lemonade and grab a vegan candy bar.

    Believe me as I'm staring at this huge bowl of candy, thinking all this sugar is right here.

    But we put on a really nice display.

    I forgot that @Marie 2 - glad you got it sorted out.
    Love your display, puts my sugar skulls, pumpkins and bats to shame.

    Morning all, been off the forum for a week (no I wasn't banned!) - half term week so off with the daughter, not sure why as she spent most of it in her bed (and she's not quite a teenager yet!). Had flu jab Wednesday and boy did it affect my BGs - consistently in the teens no matter how much insulin I ploughed in - back to 'normal' now.

    Had a quick scan through all the posts I missed, loved the picture Sue didn't like - pity Famke's hand is just out of shot as I could well imagine what the hand gesture is - defo a profanity! :hilarious:

    Morning all, totally in love with my Dexcom G6. It’s fab. The only slight issue is that the dressing is beginning to peel away with three days to go - but as I applied it in the clinic I didn’t use Skin Tac. I will when I put the next one on. It’s been really accurate, which makes running the Loop so much less “worrying” - that’s not the right word, but I’ve not had enough coffee yet. I’m much more confident to let it just do it’s thing and I’m spending MUCH less time thinking abut T1. Went to bed on a 6.0 and woke up on a 6.1 :) Basically cured ;)

    Got all my paramedic uniform yesterday, shirts, trousers (so many POCKETSES, there’s even three on the left hand shirt sleeve!), boots (horrible and clumpy, will stick to my much higher spec Hazardous Area Reaponse Team ones), fleecy chill jacket, hi-vis anorak, hi viz tabard, white t-shirts to go under the shirt, belt, baseball cap and beanie. Weighed a ton, and as we usually have to walk twenty minutes back to the car, the uni let us bring it onto campus to collect it. Just waiting for my epaulettes with my personal number on, and I’m really pleased that I’ve been able to keep my existing Community First Responder one as I’ve got quite attached to it.

    I’d be lying if I denied wearing it all yesterday evening :D :rolleyes:

    Gig tonight, flu jab tomorrow.

    Well “ cured” is possible.
    Stop eating carbs, stop injecting the now legendary “ exogenous “ insulin, stay in bed ( to avoid liver dump ) and I guarantee you will be cured.:hilarious:.
    I could tag some real experts in this field and also post some wonderful YouTube vids, but I can’t be ******.

    Hi everyone. I just thought I would like to share with you on how I control myself when eating a curry.
    I have just started using the new Medtronic pump which has again improved my lifestyle on insulin. I
    just want to demonstrate that it is possible to have the odd high carb meal if judged and controlled
    correctly. https://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/blog-entry/how-i-control-having-a-curry.2562/

    Well done on your curry "win"
    I too am on a Medtronic pump the 640G and my control is now VERY good 90% of the time. I eat high carb meals most of the time. As long as you can accurately count the carbs and know how to release the insulin into you from the pump correctly then you will be fine :)

    Wow, luv to see a photo shoot of you in uniform. Does this mean because you've been given the uniform, you're now official and have passed exams and ready for lift off?
