    According to my screen we only need 11 more posts to hit 10,000 replies. A big cheer for @Robinredbreast is imminent.

    Hello all, my first post in here I think anyway.

    I've just got back from watching Sunderland v Shrewsbury and the normal bs spike has hit me again. Normal ish blood sugars before the game and an hour after the final whistle im 16mmol. This happens all the time, I do get to worked up at the match.

    Does this happen to many others on here?

    Being a Sunderland fan seems to be bad for your health.

    @Jc3131 .
    Have you considered supporting Newcastle :):):).

    Seriously though. If I go and watch my local rugby team my sugars will usually rise.
    Adrenaline, frustration and excitement.

    Purely for medicinal purposes.
    I don’t support them myself.

    We can share the funding round us all - I'll do the pinkies, you do the thumbs, we'll set up a poll on who does the ones inbetween, we all meet up in Las Vegas next December to see how it worked out. Or Skegness...

    Journey home today has my levels at 15, mostly due to an overheating gearbox and the need to get the AA to bring us home. Husband claims I killed his car, luckily AA man says I did nothing to contribute to the overheated automatic gears.

    Thanks for all the welcomes!
    I’m surprised to hear how much people are saying stress affects their blood sugars! I know in times of severe stress it can affect it but hadn’t thought of minor stress or excitement affecting it!
    I know sometimes I panic so much if I have a high blood sugar and just can’t get it down, maybe it’s the stress!!
    Been diabetic since I was 8 months old and you learn new things everyday!

    Sorry, HSM, you've lost out there. The middle finger has already been claimed by a T1 shepherdess in New Zealand called Tanita.

    She's sent me a sweet email confirming she's sent £20,000 to my Swiss bank account, and is going to leave her mother in charge of the sheep for a while because she really wants to visit Las Vegas.

    I'll send her the Hunter S Thompson books about how to enjoy LA...

    Welcome @CheesyToast.
    I love your moniker. Just had a ‘healthy’ supper of salmon, brown rice and fresh picked perpetual spinach BUT, cheese on toast. Ooooooo!
    Should it be plain, with marmite or with branstons?
    Even better, any Supercooks out there know how to make Welsh Rarebit? It used to be the lunch treat back in the day in a fuggy old cafe where the waitresses (and they were all waitresses, lib and Spare Rib hadn’t crept that way yet) all wore black with little white aprons. China teacups but few pinkies.
    I tried making Welsh Rarebit once but it just didn’t match up.
    And why Welsh, why Rarebit?

    Hi @XCheesyToastyX and @Jc3131, agree with everything that's been said about this thread, it's the best and most helpful I've ever seen. And yes, I find stress has an effect; to varying degrees, but for instance a ropey drive can push my bg up, no problem.

    @Scott-C, meet up in Las Vegas/Skegness - hard one to call....

    @Diakat, isn't it great to be absolved of all blame by an expert!

    Husband usually drinks it. So if @nikki or @Scott-C want flat beer I could probably send it.
