So guys when was the last time someone looked down on you when you check your bg by pricking your fingers mine wass today.
I went in to town to collect my new pen and thought i need to check my bg so i stopped to do it then this women walkss past and said "could you not find some where more private to do that " i just looked her straight in the eye and politely said "excuse me but it's none of your business i do this when and where i need to" she didn't know what to say
I’m amazed, you were only doing a blood test and they reacted like that! I wonder what they’d have said if you’d pulled down your trousers to inject into your thigh - or bum?
I warn people, well friends mainly, that there’s going to be a tummy and maybe knicker reveal when I inject in midriff or stomach.
i just stick the needle through my trousers
I ate some potatoes today. Again, first time in 3 years. Nothing to report. My blood sugars were 5.1 before and four hours after. Not really normal, but small steps.
I'm still hungry after food but there's nothing carb free in the house
Have you eaten every last morsel of cheese, eggs and bacon?
yeah i ate the last egg last night but im having a fish finger sandwich with insulin and strength exercise just done hole upper body work out i will get fit and healthy i am determined
the worst thing today is the cigarette cravings kicked in really bad because i forgot to replace my nicotine patch the best thing i still have not had a cig in 20 days well that and my BG
Thanks for the welcome @hh1 and @Fairygodmother.
Diabetes not behaving itself today, and Fiasp taking a while to work after a set change. Sometimes it drops me very quickly, others times, like today slowly!!
I'm still on mdi but there still seem to be days when insulin works differently - or maybe it's my body that does! All part of the mysteries of T1.....
Morning chaps. Not feeling a million percent today, but got a full day in uni learning about pregnancy, childbirth and care of newborns. We’re being allowed into the inner sanctum of the midwifery suite... having nearly had a baby land in my lap on my second day on placement when the truck went over a series of speed bumps, it’s not before time! I’m not driving today, so I can cwtch up in the car and feel sorry for myself on the way.
Not much else to report, D running tickety-boo. Cyborg status: satisfactory
Big hugs x
Good morning everyone have a good day
That’s a brilliant effort @chris85 type 1 - best thing you could ever do, I stopped over 12 years ago and never think about it ever, just stay strong.
Hope you feel better @LooperCat
Our new type 1 group starts tonight in Worcs - hoping for a good turnout and to meet some new people, fingers crossed it goes ok !
Morning everyone xx. I had a slightly scary night as iv told you night time hypo's worry me because when i'm asleep i don't wake up then i seizure well when i went and crawled in bed my BG was at 4.4 so i ate 1 gluco tab checked again at 3 and it was at 4.1 then this morning it's at 8.7 at least i didn't hypo and still its not gone over 10 mmo/ls
@chris85 type 1 that sounds like a good night actually although you/we have no idea what happened between 3am and this this morning, it is possible you did hypo and the 8.7 was as a result of a liver dump - a libre or cgm would show this though - defo ask about the libre at your next appointment I'm sure you'll have enough ammo to throw at them to convince them it would be worth while for you.
@slip the 8.7 could be a result of i ate one more gluco tab and drank some milk at 3 that and BG rises as you wake up as i'm sure you already know
