Trapped in a bathtub?!
Welcome @Marieba @Hopeful34
@Hopeful34 I get pain sometimes now from insertion of my Omnipod, and I never did before. I'm going to try to remember to start using a oil blend on my stomach in case it's a scar tissue issue. But years ago I also had some fat inflammation issues in a couple of spots so hopefully it's not that.
But what I do because it's a little unpleasant is I scratch my skin fairly hard with my little finger as I'm inserting and it's distracting you aren't focused on it and then you don't really feel it as much.
Thanks @Marie 2. Some of them are ok, just seem to be having a run of painful ones from certain lot numbers. Roche replaced one lot number for me, and the new ones seemed better, but new box and same issue. Will try your suggestion thanks. Also have fibromyalgia though, so my body remembers pain for longer than it did when I was young.
From your previous posts I kinda guessed that - good on ya!
My mummy has overfed me and I’m actually happy about it Mum: would you like ramen? My tummy: no more please. Me: YASSSSSSSSSS PLS
Perfect not a drop left
@Hopeful34 They actually have done research on fybromyalgia and pain. A year later with a pin test and people with fibromyalgia actually were still sore at the same test spots versus others who weren't.
Good morning everyone enjoy your day
Good morning everyone here is another update that i want to say THANK YOU ALL for.
My BG was at 6.5mmo/l before i went to bed then during the night 5.1mmo/l and when i got up 7.7mmo/l that's the best night i have had in a long long time think i actually got some good sleep
Re the Libre sensor shortage. Partha Kar put a twitter post up to say it should be sorted in the next fortnight I believe.
That’s awesome mate! Sleep makes such a difference to your insulin sensitivity - if I have a rubbish night’s sleep I need to up my insulin by 10-20% the next day. Are you trying the split Levemir today?
@LooperCat I am indeed it seemed to help yesterday
Morning all, I've been steadily in range since about mid morning yesterday - no post lunch 'hump', tea/dinner/supper the same, and no evening dog walk crash either (although I did have to 'work' at that )
Just need to get my breakfast pre-bolus timing sorted - have a feeling 15-20mins is too early and 5-10mins is too late! Timing is critical........who'd have thought that
@Chris85 type1, so so happy you’re back on track - those bloods last night were superb.
Mornin’ all, nearly topped up the caffeine tank enough to get my brain up and running. Who else is a shameless addict? I’d find life without coffee, and tea, a tad difficult.
@Fairygodmother I love my tea, I have the biggest mug in the office !!
Bad start today, woke at 10.4 did correction and stopped at shops on the way to work and went hypo, dealing with a fair amount of work stress at the moment which has my head whirring so thinking it's related to that, Pump clinic this afternoon to get a brand spanking new one as the 4 year warranty has just run out, was hoping they'd give me the 670g but I think it's just a straight 640g swap today.
A 670 would be wonderful, fingers crossed and teabags out for you @Juicyj. Here’s hoping.
Not me, cuppa tea in the morning with breakfast, another when I get home from work and thats about it, I'll have a coffee mid morning at weekends usually. I don't need any other stimulus other than insulin!
Set change last night, BGs were perfect all night (hovering around 9). Had breakfast and am now on 16.7 BUT a southerly facing arrow, insulin is taking an age to work! Today Fiasp is slower than NovoSluggish
@slip I average around 8 cups of tea a day
@chris85 type 1 woohoo well done mate. Good to see you are getting a reign on things
I used to run on coffee and insulin now less coffee but no way could i stop drinking it
