    I was told that last week at my surgery's Cohen's pharmacy, that they didn't have one of my emergency items ( my first online repeat prescription, got lost in the system, a nightmare Friday night !!) so a lady and her mum gave me a lift to another pharmacy, it's exactly the same name, different location, but still in town and they gave me my Libre sensor's x 2
    :happy:

    @chris85 type 1 cute puppy and no, I don't have problems with Lantus stinging, can't say it's ever been a problem for me.

    @porl69 that's quite some creature, I rather like him? her? Is he/she yours?

    Oh and I can't get any Libre sensors at the moment; mine are on prescription (lucky me!) and my pharmacy (a Boots attached to my GP surgery) has a wiat list for 14 of them before they get to me! This happened last winter too, and it's beyond frustrating. I've literally no idea when I'll get one.

    Not posted until recently but have been following some threads for a long time, and especially this one daily. I've learnt so much and just enjoyed reading the posts. So sad that people left recently, and am so glad to see LooperCat back, and also Cumberland again:)
    Type 1 for 53 years, pumping for 9 years using Combo pump. Using libre and MM for 1 year. Recently been having issues with pain when inserting cannulas, having used The Flexlink for 9 years, and wondered if anyone else was having problems?

    quick update after food which was more like 75g of carbs and 13 units of bolus by 16:10 i was down to 3.9mmo/ls looks like i could maybe cut down my bolus dose if i take two basal doses 12 hours apart.
    think im going to bring it back an hour a day from 22:00 to 20:00 to make it easier to remember

    I ate 3 biscuits today. The first in 3 years. (This may give you some sad insight into how strict my regime tends to be.) No fruit or dexter tablets nearby at work and I didn't feel like legging it back to the office. The biscuits appear to have done the trick and were super.

    Evening all!

    Reporting in before vanishing to have a Big Think. Yeah, work was that good today, I'm seriously considering a change beyond the world of education.

    Still, I may feel better after food, another walk, a hot bath and more sleep... a rare night-time hypo didn't help last night's slumbers.
