    No one is a failure, it can be a hard slog at times, with blips along the way, but thank goodness for Insulin to keep us alive. Take care :)

    Ha ha! Mostly, but also fly, back crawl and breast stroke. We also do drills with arms and legs and it is all timed. For instance this morning when doing sets of 4 lengths you have a 10 sec break before the next one. Great fun and very good for me if you ignore the Adrenalin!!!!

    Ugh. Libre traces now looks like it did at dawn - relatively steady and now a steep rise. I wonder if it’s just not lasting 24 hours for me?

    Guys. Forgive me. But this is starting to look like a T2 thread now.

    Hi guys and lovely gals. The thread seems to be thriving. As you may or may not know I don't post the numbers stuff. This morning was an exception, I wanted to make sure the thread kept going. Need not have bothered. Congratulations to @Robinredbreast on a great idea. I just thought I'd share this with you

    This is me. Well part of me:):)
    It's actually the part of my head that wasn't far enough away from the tailgate of my Skoda Yeti.:banghead::banghead:
    As this is a roughty toughty type 1 section , please feel free to laugh.
    Looks like my dexcom calibration tonight will be based on head blood.
