    Morning all, been a busy weekend - well actually thinking about it it wasn't that busy just hectic - saturday night daughter had 6 other friends for a sleep over (early birthday thing) with a visit to the cinema to see Frozen II - why did I get the car load that was the noisiest? had renditions of most of the songs from the original, at least most of them could sing I suppose. BGs were as expected :rolleyes:

    Morning chaps. Another twelve hours sleep and I’m wondering how long it’ll take to get used to working shifts! Got a cold sore which is my usual indicator of being run down, so that’s nice. Not. Three dayshifts this week, starting at 6am tomorrow. I do prefer three 12hr shifts with lots of days off to five 8hr days a week and a short weekend! Currently still enjoying a four day weekend...

    On the diabetes front, I’m needing much, much less insulin. In a week where I’d usually use a 150% override, I’m only needing 80-90%. I’m assuming it’s because I’m busier out on the road than when I’m slouching around uni? ‍♀️

    @LooperCat I know what you mean regarding not knowing what day of the week it is! Shift work does that to you.

    Been running a bit higher recently too but resisting the temptation to up my basal. Think it’s actually stress that’s doing it, need work to calm down but can’t see that happening before Christmas.

    Can someone turn off diabetes for today?
    My closet must be almost empty now with all the different blouses I tried today. I've done the conservative blouse (for getting out of bed to not go low because I had a very short night and an active morning, so no clue what foot on the floor would think of that), a couple of corrective blouses (didn't work, I still look fat and bg stayed highish), 2 bold blouses before meals (in hopes to go lowish so I could eat the grapefruit I craved. Didn't work, as wouldn't drop below 7), a wild blouse (when thinking I'd better eat first as finally on the low side and then finding out I forgot the blouse after dinner) and a mystery blouse (when the dog jumped on my pen while injecting, so no clue how much got in me and how much on the dog).
    All those blouses and I still have more than half of my cleaned grapefruit left, as I didn't dare to throw that in the mix as well unless going below 5. I cleaned it 12 hours ago. Isn't diabetes stupid!

    Hello,
    No problem, I’ll go find a few functioning pancreases
    I got my dates wrong and I’m seeing my consultant tomorrow. Oopsie, manager was okay with it though. I think I have gained weight but my clothes still fit fine. But work clothes were always tight so I’ll find out tomorrow. Unfortunately I’m still running between 9-10 in the morning but I’m okay for the rest of the day.

    Just checking in. Morning all, bit of an oddity last night, just before tea/supper/dinner i was 4.3 so decided to jab after I'd eaten as I suspected the food would have delayed carb uptake, and as usual I forgot to do it straight after, so after about an hour or so after eating I did it then took the dog for a walk, back from walk and bam! drop like a stone, last of the birthday cake to the rescue - lots of icing sugar and soon back up to normal and beyond! thankfully a correction meant a nice 6.4 this morning, 6.7 ~2hrs after that and 5.1 now. Hope everyone is having a steady morning too.

    Hello friends,

    Appointment went well, I saw a different member of the team and he is a gentle human. He said he’ll write me a letter for work to urge them to let me treat my hypos without the need to move else where to do it and treat it accordingly. Unfortunately when I hypo and treat it, I tumble back down to where I started. The restaurant want a good reputation and apparently having my phone = a bad review from area manager and guests that come in to eat. Consultant said he’ll extend the libre prescription for another two months until pump and CGM are in place. Hba1c hasn’t changed much from 46 to 44.

    Do you follow up the hypo treatment with some slower carbs like a piece of bread or such?

    Sorry to hear you've been unwell @porl69 It's a pain but will pass, unfortunately it means extra work to manage it on top of everything else, but easier when you're using the libre.

    I agree with Antje - make sure you've got some carbs on top of your glucose in your tum when you go hypo @MeiChanski it should save you crashing and remember once you go hypo, stronger likelihood of crashing again later on too, so try to run a bit higher.
