    I'm pretty sure we do, but I don't know where to locate it. Or what it's doing when it's not 'up'.

    Well maybe it doesn't because I've never noticed you changing any of yours Maureen. In which case, we've both publicised our shortcomings unnecessarily LOL :joyful:

    It's probably stress Maureen - try not to worry. You're doing all you can and you'll get there...

    Think it's like when a dogs hair goes up on the back of its neck. I "think" dander is soft downy hair on the back of ours.....but don't quote me on that

    Good Morning, my good friends,

    On waking this morning, a grave autistic meltdown was precipitated by one of my tablets (Amlodipine 10 mg) fell out of the dossett box on to the floor of the kitchen due to my hand shaking so badly and general motor clumsiness. I couldn't find the tablet in my filthy and untidy kitchen and I can't clean it because I can't bend because of moderate osteoarthritis in the spine.

    My friend Lee says he's never seen a full autistic meltdown from myself before, I was flapping my hands and banging myself.

    Lee is going to tidy some of the disarray in my kitchen later on this afternoon, and I am grateful to him for that.

    My blood glucose reading was 6.4 this morning at 9:20 Ante Meridian.

    From @autisticwonder1970 (Johnny Baker)

    Welcome to type 2 life forum @Aud3150 .
    We can look after you here.
    They like to keep fasting forum to numbers and a sentence, preferably.

    LCHF (low carb high fat) is an eating plan which is well documented on these forums as a blood glucose lowering plan. Some lose weight on it too. It can be used to keep your weight healthy. (I only lost at the begining of it and then stopped, because I overate on protein instead).
    There is a big section on nutrition and a low carb programme too but don't get overwelmed. Have a read and see what you think.
    I've had to go slowly slowly catchy monkey and still made a mistake but I've put it right now!
    Loads of support available.
    ASK A QUESTION forum is one of my favourites.
    STORIES AND SUCCESSES is awesome!

    Read at your leisure.
    Your on the right path to lower fasting blood glucose levels!

    I'll tag @daisy1 for the correct introduction to the forums.

    Your welcome anytime.
    Ask questions even the funny ones. You can ask anything. Enjoy! :)
