    I've had similar from running with my toenail a little long - the nail tapping on the end of the shoe caused a bruise which stayed there for a long time.

    Brain flashes (from one of a few remaining neurons? My changeover to a new cartridge ran over by about 36 hours? Maybe the insulin in the tubing is less effective after the usual 72 hours??

    Good morning y'all, a waking 4.7 for me so I did a Fred Flintstone impression on the stairs "Yabba dabba doo" much to the amusement of my youngest, we went out for a carvery last night after swimming and I'd hovered up to 10mmols (and I hoovered up a fair plate full of gammon :p) so skipped supper (I don't like this bit :p) had 1.5u and slept right through, so I'll take that :)

    @karen8967 I'm smiling at your "a bit Baltic" comment as I've heard it said recently a few times and it certainly looked that way outside when I saw my little un off to school, forecast suggests I can work later but the roof tiles across the road suggest I can't.

    Have a good day y'all :)

    Hi @Mel dCP A purple nail shouldn't be much to worry about, I lost a toenail last year after doing a charity walk, grew back fine, I think if your control is good as it is then there shouldn't be an issue, the polish could of stained the nail ?

    Morning all

    Bit of an up and down evening but on the whole OK, Etch A Sketch said was dead all night, which was a bit of a surprise however waking with a 3.3 ~sigh~ now sat here contemplating taking over the world with a steady 5.4 while listening to Bowie

    @karen8967 Think I got as low as 2.5 yesterday, it was one of those hypos where I stare into space or look at my insulin pen trying to work out if I had injected or not meanwhile time moves in its own pace where only quantum mechanics work. Still solved with a Timeout biscuit, works for me.

    Morning.

    Today is one of those days when the "Good" part of "Good Morning" is optional: I woke with a Hypo Head and the etch a sketch told me my BG was low all night. Yeah, I know if you lie on the etch a sketch pen it may do that but this was a definite low.
    And I have a customer meeting so I have to look intelligent, not bored, not in pain, happy to see them and interested in everything they say.
    My upbeat American colleagues will not be joining us - they will be busy eating turkey and pumpkin pie and giving thanks before Friday turns "Black".

    Ok. Got that off my chest, eaten brekkie, drunk a cuppa so ready to fight the day ... and scrape the ice off my car. Brrrr.

Ooops..BG test confirmed Lo as well///.Few jelly babies and my breakfast with limited bolus and Bobs your uncle all fine and dandy. Sat on a 10.4 now grrrrr, going to be a roller coaster day today

    @Mel dCP the toe could be due to lots of walking - wonder if it was caused by the march and you haven't been able to see it till now? When I played tennis regularly (back in the Dark Ages) 'black toe' was something some players got caused by your big toe banging against the end of your shoe, and I found out last week that it's not uncommon in runners.

    @porl69 @karen8967 knew exactly what she was saying..................

    porl69 hope you've managed to dress yourself properly now & 'enjoy' the roller coaster ride........:sorry:

    8.8 last night, 10.0 this morning :arghh:, followed by another low mid morning, twice on the trot now - work days I do normally dip mid morning but I do like to have an excuse for a snack so I'm ok with this but last to days the drop has been quite sudden and much lower than normal, if it happens again tomorrow I'll be making changes.
