    13.8 this morning. Once I’ve had my breakfast and started moving about it’ll be a nice 7.

    7.4 this morning which I suppose is a little high but I do feel better first thing if I'm in the 7s.
    I'm not a breakfast fan either so it suits my morning work routine.....

    Wishing everyone a top day....

    Btw any bg you get from me is from a fingerprick not from a Libre. If you want a Libre reading just pick a random number between 9 and 21.

    I was thinking of getting another useless (to me) libre sensor just so that I could contribute to one of those threads where you show your blood sugar doing an awesome flat line. In my case, it would be a reading of LO throughout the day, but it would be flat. :)

    Isn’t it odd how it works great for some people and doesn’t for others? Maybe our blood is different. Better. Stronger.

    Clearly we both had the same idea @Robinredbreast to start a new thread. Your title is much catchier. I wonder @DCUKMod if you can move the stuff in the thread "How Are You Doing T1s? Life, Thoughts, Bgs, Ups & Downs" to here?

    I think I'd go OTT with Haribos, I'm bad enough limiting fruit pastilles

    If you are talking about merging the threads, the content goes across and stays in "time posted" order, so there would be many pages of this thread as a preamble to Robin's thread opener and content. Is that what you want?

    If that is what you want, any mod can merge threads.

    Makes sense I suppose to merge the 2 and @Robinredbreast has done a grand job starting this one

    Awful night, went to bed higher than I would have liked but had had alcohol and didn’t want a low. Chance would have been a fine thing!

    10.5 at 2am took a unit.
    11.1 at 6am. Breakfast, rhubarb and yoghurt. 10carbs. Took usual 3 units, an hour later 5.8 with a plunging arrow. 2 jelly babies as I was swimming. 80 lengths and an hour later 5.3. Good job I had those jelly babies.
    Now at 5.7 and relax!
    Though I shall probably rise through the morning due to the Adrenalin created whilst swimming.

    Oh, I would advocate it. For the first 8 months of usage, freestyle libre was a life changer to me (comparable to my first glucometer). Unfortunately after that my immune compromised T1 body decided it was allergic to the sensor (I could have lived with the rash if that was all it was) and as a consequence of that the readings became totally erratic/unusable for me. If you're one of the many (most?) for whom it works well, then go for it, it's the best thing since sliced bread. Unfortunately, I'm one of the few for whom it no longer works. :(
