    I made a point on posting on both and it is confusing some times. ;)

    I'm delighted for @Cumberland .
    I'm still not satisfied with being accuse of bad eating and exercise habitual offender as to why I have type 2.
    I cannot get to the bottom of my diabetes developing at the age of 6. I know not type 1. But I know not through bad eating or lack of exercise. In fact I was an extremely strong child. I contended in the shot put for my school competitions and adored rounders. Late used the local gyms and jogged with my exfootballer husband everyday.
    No my type is type 2 due to insulin resistance but I'd argue down anyone who accuses me of lazy and junk food eater.
    I visited a mcdonalds in june to find they no longer do big breakfast or most of the items I associate with mcdonalds treats.
    I wouldnt know where my nearest kfc is nor any other junk food restaurants.
    Carbs are to blame not me.

    I am back at the library this morning, 16/07/16 at 9:14 ante meridian and I am happy to tell you all, my good, loyal friends, that I had a normal b.g. this morning of 6.4. I believe I had just felt poorly with anxiety symptoms pertaining to my Asperger syndrome. I took all my prescribed medication for the morning this morning and had a sweet breakfast of crunchy-nut cornflakes made by Kellogg's with semi-skimmed milk. my b.g. 1 hour afterwards was 11.1 but I feel that wasn't an accurate reading because I didn't wait the whole 2 hours like some of the lovely people on this forum advised me to do.

    Today I feel some abdominal bloating, shaky, anxious, and slightly warm and sometimes nauseous. I've had a few cups of coffee with sugar and both suctrose and caffeine could be detrimental for insulin-resistant diabetes like I have.

    I feel much better today, however, after a lovely, replenishing, somewhat dreamless night's sleep.

    The weather in South London isn't terribly sunny but it's lovely and warm but with a lovely cool breeze to chill the air and encourage good air quality, with the exception of mass pollution ensued by conservation.

    A very good morning to you, my lovely friends, and please enjoy your weekends immensely.

    You too @autisticwonder1970 .
    Sugar in any form isn't healthy for us diabetics. Try and keep it out of your diet. I love anything nutty so I can see your love for nut-cornflakes. I'd eat the whole packet so I don't buy them. Yummy!

    Hope everyone's having a good day!

    I started wonderfully well, with a 6.5, (been 7s and 8s mostly for FBGs, but they are still my highest usually) after a month of testing timings for metformin, had a lovely lazy start to a long weekend, (Monday is a TOIL day) then set about some housework - hoovering, floor mopping, tidying - after a late breakfast.

    When came the delightful moment when I had just mopped all the washable floors, put almost all the towels and most of the cleaning cloths into a long wash cycle THEN tipped a can of Pepsi Max all over a sitting room occasional table in the furthest corner from the remaining available cloths and kitchen roll.

    Try again on the quiet sit-down front.. I'll add the rest of the cloths to a re-do of the laundry load in about half an hour but maybe just one of the quick wash cycles.

    I may well be around here a bit more, only two more days of work before I'm off until the end of August! :)

    Perhaps it's to do with the way posts are rated?

    A few are off form. Me included.
    Some times it's good to forget about diabetes. Otherwise it takes over your life. Too extreme. Life is for living.
    I need to get out more.
    Although tired today. Preparing for a low carb diet again. Last time. If after 8 weeks no weight loss it will be off the agenda. Permanently!

    I do wonder where all of our formerly regular posters have gone Vicki @doolallylady @mo53 @Diamum5972 , and many others have all stopped or infrequently post, myself included. I don't think that we can all feel a bit off form?

    Some of my posts have 'disappeared' and I don't know why

    Is anyone else experiencing this?

    I am about to commence a new insulin called Toujeo and I asked a question twice now on the ask a question thread as the original post vanished

    For me it's a combination of circumstances - I find that when I'm online too much it can give me headaches so when I'm on DCUK I tend to stick to a limited number of threads. I'm also trying to get out and about more while it's still summer (ha!) so I'm out of the house a lot during the day, and in the evening I'm too tired!

    I find that a 3 egg cheese omelette makes a great lunch and gives me a big proportion of that days healthy fats,- I fry in butter too. Good luck Vicki with your 8 week experiment
