    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 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.

    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 :borg:

    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 !

    @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
