    Big award to @porl69 for holding his tongue! (Don’t ask how he did it). It’s a shame there isn’t a better name for each type .

    @porl69 I hope your head doesn't hurt too much after hitting it against that brick wall!

    I confess before I was diagnosed, I knew very little about diabetes and the different types. However, I had no one in my family or amongst my friends with any type of diabetes. I didn't have a father who had cured his type 1 through diet and exercise.

    We call them disgustobars and eat them on walks. When it's cold, they shatter and when it's warm they stick to the plastic. We like them.

    If we could harness the curative power of ignorance, diabetes would be a thing of the past.
    (Or something like that.)

    I think you said you now have 6 days off (unless your boss clicks his fingers). So you have 6 days of energy to absorb from your couch during the rest of today.

    @porl69 . So now you know.:):):).
    I had a similar chat a few weeks back. A type 2 was informing me that I was lucky on account I could just inject insulin and eat anything.
    I smiled safe in the knowledge that diabetes wasn’t her biggest problem.
    One of those good days where minimum effort has been needed to keep everything in range.
    Going to dine al fresco shortly. Chicken Fajitas. I reckon 10g carbs should cover 3 of them and maybe a good squirt of insulin might do the trick. Easy peasy this type 1 malarkey
