    Good morning y'all

    Well hypoland ALL of last night. Went to bed on a 4.5 had a bananananana as I climbed the stairs. Libre had my at 3 most of the night. That was with a 80% basal adjustment too. Must be the heat?? Sat on a 3.9 as I type, so a cuppa with 2 sugars is the go now

    Looks lovely - have you tried Furikake? It’s a Japanese seasoning made of finely chopped seaweed, sesame seeds and salt. Really nice with some yuzu juice on an avocado. And prawns. Or tofu. Or anything at all, really. Husbeast bought me some sheets of seaweed snack stuff in Costco yesterday, I absolutely love the stuff!

    Hi @Delticmatt100 ,

    What is your personal view on the subject?

    Within a few days of coming out of hospital I was given the kit & advised I'm going to be on my own with this some day. No time like the present.

    Sooo, with the busy hubbub of life (including involvent with the care of the woman that initially imparted the advice many years ago. I can't be doing with the whole "OCD" on top of the basic cleanliness & self pride society (& John Wesley.) expects from personal hygiene..

    Nothing cleans wounds like your own saliva. Nothing preps the action of inpalment like a bit of soap & water.. :)

    Anyone watched Prison Break (currently watching it on amazon) - the main character is supposedly T1 (except he's not) but he has to go to the medical bay everyday for his 'shot' - now I guess the series was made a good few years ago but the doc injects him like she's doing a vaccination, using 1970's inch long thick gauge needles STABBED (theres stabbed and then theres STABBED!) in the arm - I can't remember seeing her use a wipe either........... @Delticmatt100 I think the medical profession use alcohol wipes just in case you get an infection and they can claim to use reasonable measures to avoid such things and so you can't sue them for it, I don't think I or anyone else is in the habit of suing themselves.....?!:D

    @helensaramay skating on thin ice! I think most of us are older than you so try not to laugh at us:p

    Thought I was funny when editing your post :)
    Have no fear, it's all about context so you may learn all about dams, locks, dykes, weirs and even mother animals and discuss them :)

    Got to admit, I've looked and searched everywhere and can't find any rails.....

    we even, now and again, mention the D word and help each other. And we give English language lessons!

    No, they're relatively cheap to buy on Amazon and my consultant said the skin doesn't need cleaning before injecting.

    I don't think I will qualify for having a hypo hound in the near future (well here's hoping): https://hypohounds.co.uk/faqs/ But I'm sending them a donation.

    Here's a DIY hypo detection dog training guide. I'm going to try this myself with my two spaniels. I was planning on getting them the Kennel Club Good Citizenship Award Scheme to GOLD anyway.
    https://wagwalking.com/training/detect-low-blood-sugar
    My youngest, at 8 months, is fascinated by my blood testing and injections already and appears at my side whenever I'm testing. The major thing appears to collect a whole lot of spit whenever I'm hypoing or hypering to freeze for practice scent sessions.

    On the scale of 1-10, does anyone think an ice cream van would have a vegan option? There's one driving around in my neighbourhood and my stomach doesn't want to scream. :hilarious:
