    My socks were off, they gave me the jab in the arm as usual though!

    Indeed they do, and so do I. My GP has informed me that I never waste his time, but he wants to see me at least once a year and as that's about due so I'm just pre-empting the review letter I'd be getting in the next month or so anyway! We have a similar approach to sorting this kind of thing as well.

    In this instance, I know it's the GPs at my surgery who do this kind of inputting, plus the clinic letter was a bit vague and didn't specify both insulins by name. Easily missed.

    Drug users often inject there, it’s a thing medics check, apparently.

    In other news, I passed all my exams, including the one where I had a brainfart and needed to resit. Which means I officially get to dress up like a giant green recycling bin and get set loose on patients. First shift is Wednesday night :)

    Diabetes going well, had a slight stress spike to 7.8 when my results were published today. Elvis is taking the strain remarkably well, to be fair. And now I’m off to bed because I’m hitting the road at 0545 tomorrow morning for a conference in Birmingham. Night ❤️

    That's brilliant @Japes. Whenever I see a GP, nurse or the pharmacist, I always thank them and tell them how much I appreciate their work and the treatment they give me.

    Morning all.

    @LooperCat Welcome to Brum! I'll wave from my corner of the city. I was planning on a long walk after the most horrible of working days yesterday, which had the most unexpectedly awful end, but the weather forecast is not looking at all promising or conducive to walking.
