    Oh, it was terrible wasn't it, I'd forgotten. Owning a copy of that could mess up the Friday blood sugars of a lot of people.

    “These numbers are amazing”; “I can see you have almost no hypos”; “Keep doing what you’re doing”; “this is perfect diabetes management”; “I’m going to buy that Bernstein book”

    Argh!

    Arrived at the Supermarket with the Pharmacy on a 3.2. Handed prescription over, took myself to the cafe to recover, overdid the carbs, discovered the second mistake with the prescription, (not sure if this one is mine or the prescribing GPs, but the first mistake definitely wasn't me!) so, I'm now stockpiling Novorapid but will need to go back for Levemir once the new prescription is issued.

    Arrived back home on 15.2 (told you I'd over-done it) and, um, may have rage-bolused a bit so now on a 4.9 and feeling like it's going lower. Cheesy oatcakes for supper it is...

    Thank you! But T1 being T1, I’m all over the shop today. Been up half the night with a mild fever and high alarms going off all over the place. I finished the chest infection antibiotics and I suspect they haven’t worked. Ugh. Ketones at 0.3 which is very low for me, so not worried on that front. Had to postpone our much anticipated visit from a close friend as don’t want to send him to his very frail mum with any lurgy. Hope you all have a better day!

    Weeks like this I'm not sure what day it is most of the time. I do know it's Friday today 'cos I've got a podiatry appointment; frequent flier because of scarring from 2 ops a couple of years ago, nothing to do with diabetes and still no-one knows what the problem was! In future I'm avoiding doctors who say, 'we're not sure, so we'll open it up and have a look inside'!

    @porl69 it's obviously a Friday thing - woke to a 6.1, usual breakfast & bolus, up to 8.9 then 10.2 after walking - duh? And according to Libre, I wasn't dead overnight....

    Hope you feel better soon @Mel dCP - does this mean more antibiotics?

    I imagine it might. I only finished the course yesterday, and sank rapidly overnight. I’ll keep an eye on things over the weekend, my temperature is back to its usual icy 36, and I’ll make use of my shiny new pulse oximeter to check my O2 levels as well.

    Morning folks, hope you are all well and looking forward to New year, any poorly ones, sending a big get well hug <3
    I have to stay in today, as one of my windows won't lock, so it is un-secure. It is an emergency repair so someone will be out in the next 24 hrs, which could mean during the night, depending on how busy they are :wideyed: Not keen on that, as it's just me and my daughter here, but the window must be secured. I have tied a large shoe lace to the broken handle and tied it to the other one.

    I’ll take back what I said about the MIL trying to poison me, I’m sure if it was that my enforced ‘basal test’ yesterday wouldn’t have been so high! A 24hr bug I reckon, feeling a lot more human today, and BGs back to normal (currently 5.8!).
