    I pressed like because I'd love a evening to myself. 9yr old just been delivered for his sleep over. 3yr old just woke after his 4pm afternoon nap. He doesn't sleep til 10pm or later on non-school days. Hubby in a chatty mood.
    I'm in for a long night. Yawnnnn! Ha ha
    Thank god for this sain forum. Well, sort of! :)

    Hopefully once his painkillers start being effective he can resume to full duties and get his zing back?

    Hello all, long time no speak :lurking::oops: As some of you may remember I was targeted for compulsory redundancy at work and things have been really stressful.... until I landed myself a new job!!! :joyful::singing::happy: The new job is much closer to home, will take over an hour off my total travelling time each day and I have a really good feeling about it. I start in September, which means trying to keep myself motivated and positive at my current school for another 7 weeks... I've been feeling a bit low because of all the **** at work, I get social anxiety when I'm stressed :shy:

    Health-wise, my blood pressure seems to be stabilising, blood sugars are good and my new fitbit is encouraging me to do lots of walking. My weight loss has slowed down a lot, but I'm still finding my clothes are getting looser so I'm obviously toning up. I hope everyone else is doing ok? What have I missed????

    I got a letter from my practice today saying they were changing all patients meters to:

    GlucoRx Nexus using GlucoRx blood glucose test strips

    So I googled it coz never heard of it before and I would like to know if anyone on here has this meter if so please advise me if your thoughts

    I use AccuCheck Aviva Expert and was given this in March as I am on MDI

    I like the meter I have got because it calculates the amount of insulin to inject when you enter your carb total per serving into the meter

    If this GlucoRx does not do the carb calculation then frankly I don't want it

    @Cumberland - Hi, I am using the GlucoRx Nexus and have been for a good year now, and It just tests your blood sugars and nothing else.
    I had previously bought my own meter (which I could log Insulin etc) and I was only getting Lancets and Test Strips on prescription, then my practise sent me a simular letter, saying I would have to buy my test strips/lancets or use theirs. . So, I opted to use theirs and get 100 test strips every 2 months on prescription (free). :)
