    I agree - my great grandad had a motto "Do something every day, that you don't do every day". Which, when you think about it, is very good advice for keeping life interesting..

    My blood is a little more settled than it was yesterday but the whole berry cranberry juice keeps playing merry hell with it. I sort of decided that for the time being it doesn't matter if control is distinctly off, there's enough going on to keep me stressed without worrying about blood.

    What is “good sugar”?
    Actually, what is “bad sugar”?
    I thought sugar was sugar. It comes in different coarseness - granulated, caster and icing. But it’s still sugar.

    Ooops - down to an accidental 2.8 - slurp hasty glass of wholeberry cranberry gubbins - which Nutracheck kindly informs me is 26g of carbs. Might be a slight over-correction .....:rolleyes:

    I have absolutely no idea. All I did was have a shower and hairwash. Lunch was yonks ago - bowl of cereal and oat milk, and injected what I thought was the right amount. Deeply confusing.

    And now I've eaten my meal, and have no idea what to shove in. I think I'll just go for enough to deal with dinner, and then test in about 75 minutes (which is when I hit my highest spike after eating).

    If it turns out I did overdo the juice, I can stack the insulin if I'm careful.

    I suppose low is better than the highs I was at for the past couple of days, but I don't like dipping into the 2's. WIsh I'd paid more attention and picked it up in the 3's but I was focussing on drying my hair.

    I think it's another chickpea night for me, because salad needs finishing and bf doesn't eat salad as much as me. I reckon spicy chickpeas will go with an italian salad. :)

    Could I just say I've had no hypos for the last 4 days and I feel fantastic diabetes wise. I feel like I've been waiting for this moment or feeling for so long. I guess my tiredness isn't diabetes fault and awkwardly my blood tests came back all fine. They couldn't detect anything or find a reason for my hair loss and tiredness. I've been napping less but I'm still mopping around.

    Has anyone tried 1:30 or 1:35 ratio? At night or late evening I'm quite sensitive, which ends up me waking up on low end of normal -4-5.5mmol/l. I've tried 1:15 and 1:20, both have put me into low end of normal. Libre shows it's a yellow colour and I want it to be green. :hilarious:

    I imagine the recipe is in a diabetes mag or cookbook. But if they're nice enough to be worth the injection, crack on!
