    Lol !! We tried a little known place called Orelle which had a 15 min ski lift into Val Thorens and the 3 valleys so got access to a huge area - it was a really last minute as cheap as we could do it, so channel tunnel drive and self catered accommodation, very few English people there only met one family from London.

    Survived the first day back yesterday. Mostly higher than I wanted but it’s ok. Kids still off here which is a bit of a pain with work.

    Hello friends,
    Diabetes not bad, 9.8 this morning and I was only high yesterday from eating congee.
    I tried the vibration alarms for Dexcom and I quite like it for the “about to go low”, of course urgent low will be the demonic noise you can hear from across the room.
    Ladies, do yall go to sleep without pj pants on, like letting your legs run free and just feel the bed sheets? Royal Mail delivery man got a good look this morning but I was too lazy to put anything on and he came at a time I was still half asleep.

    Hello old friends and new. I hope you are well! x

    I am back (again).

    Lil man is 4 months now, blood sugars are settling down and I have even managed to move house! So it has been a crazy few months to say the least...

    So after 20 years of MDI, I started on the Omnipod! Still feels odd....

    My diabetic dog has teeth cleaning and a fractured tooth and maybe another tooth that has to be pulled tomorrow. It is already worrying me. She is wearing a Libre all the time now so that at least is helpful. The vet has been reading up on surgery with diabetic dogs which is very nice and they will keep her on an IV longer and someone will be sitting with her during recovery, but it is still worrying.

    Thank you

    It’s day 1! So far still feels odd! And still lots to figure out/learn. I have been told it may take some time to figure out/tweak my basal rates...! So maybe you need to give it more time? x

    I'll have my fingers crossed that her surgery and recovery will be boringly uneventful!
    I expect the Libre will be very helpful to the vet and the one sitting with her during recovery. And she'll feel much better after getting rid of the bothersome teeth, she sounds like a very lucky dog!

    Has much improved? Why has it been so frustrating? Is it basal rates are not quite right? Delivery insulin rates are too slow? I hope things work out soon for you :(

    Hello again friends, I just wanted to report that it’s been less than 20 days on my Dexcom and I’m feeling hypo tingles around 3.5 mmol/l mark. (Nothing dramatic like sweating or shaking though) A slight improvement that I am extremely happy about.

    That's fantastic news.

    Do you feel the hypo, then check it out on the Dexcom, or do you see them on the Dexcom, then realise you have mild symptoms?

    I'm positive both are great info, but it's interesting to try to understand what's actually going on, and I guess interesting feedback for your team.

    morning all, i've been in target range for 24hrs (just!) although I think I'm about to ruin it by having a big fat bacon roll which seems really odd after working my way through a crowd of extinction rebellion protesters out side work - to come in and be greeted by a large tray of big fat bacon rolls going spare...........the devil in me thought it might be a good idea to go and offer them around out side :D (I'm not taking sides but it was delicious!)
