    @WuTwo and @MeiChanski I am confused.
    How do you have left over pizza?

    Himself and I make exactly the right amount - between us we have three very thin crust pizzas. Ot one pizza each (his usually has meat on it) and a garlic bread/mozzarella balls/parmesan flatbread out of the last lot of dough.
    We have learnt not to overdo the cheese and as I don't have meat they are not too fatty.

    Yeah, my lips and mouth went all tingly, and my throat swelled a little. Like very mild anaphylaxis. I did a little research and apparently it’s not uncommon in people with a birch pollen allergy. I’m not aware of being allergic to that, but I react to so many things that I wasn’t terribly surprised :(

    But LOOOOOOP!!!! :borg:

    True question My bf can eat a pizza by himself and usually my eyes are bigger than my stomach and manage a quarter of a pizza. If it’s by myself, I have pizza for the next 2 days.

    I'm useless with food - I can be totally sure I will eat a particular amount of food but then when I'm eating, I find I've had enough half way through.

    In fact to deal with this I now inject as soon as I've eaten because otherwise I can find I've injected for the meal and leave half. I got very fed up dealing with the consequences, so changed injection time. Might not be "right" but it works for me.

    Before DAFNE I was injecting after food, although I didn't have libre then to witness the spikes. On paper my BG was stable to some extent. I had my head bitten off during DAFNE for continuing to inject after food, they kept telling me to inject before. I found I never finish food and faced the consequences. So now I inject in stages or after food.

    By the way, writing lines as a punishment/to make the rules sink in has gotten a whole lot better since my youth. Thanks, whoever invented copy-paste!

    With me its Nan bread, no matter how much insulin I take and with the pump I can spit the dose over a longer period, usually 6 hours. I will go to bed with a decent BG and wake up around 3 am in double figures. Yet when I have the same curry with rice I am fine

    My bf put together my Kallax and my desk looks a lot neater. :) Finally somewhere to store books :D
    We had the last of our cheesy vegan pasta from yesterday, I wished I put some in the oven to get the cheese on top to crisp up a little. Crispy cheesy pasta sounds goood. :hilarious:

    Did that with my phone. Still seems to read anywhere between 0.6 and 1.5 lower than a finger prick. No need to find a reader as I've never bought one. They cost exactly the same as a sensor in the Netherlands and I rather have one more sensor than a reader :)
    Turned out the rage bolusing wasn't rage bolusing at all but accurate gut feeling :) The heat must be playing tricks with me. Bit sad about that, as I was looking forward to eating one or two kersenbonbons*, more or less demanded from the restaurant the day before yesterday 'in case I'll go hypo during driving'. (yes, of course I had boring hypo treatment with me, but I fancied those kersenbonbons)

    If you ever get higher post meal spikes than you want you could always consider injecting for half your meal before eating and topping up when finished. But as long as it works for you it sounds fine to me :)

    Aubergines have the same effect on me. My husband grew some one year and we were only able to use one - we gave the rest away.

    That sounds really scary - glad it didn't get any more serious than that! And as a complete non-techie, looking forward to hearing how you get on with your loop. It's all way outside my competence but fascinated by what you're doing

    I’ve had full on anaphylaxis before (the last time I ever dyed my hair :( ), so knew it wasn’t too serious, but was also aware that it could have gone that way! I stayed awake until it wore off, just in case.
    And I’m not entirely sure that it’s within my own competence, but the online community is so helpful, I’m sure I can get it working. In an ideal world, it’ll be able to handle the slow rises and falls that my LC diet gives without having to bolus. We shall see!
