    I cooked a fairsized portion of brown rice with a few Brussel sprouts and Dunn's River jerk seasoning yesterday evening at 16:31 Hours with 1 cup of Sainsbury's Basmati Brown Rice, a tiny bag of Brussel sprouts, 3 cups of water, 1 dessertspoonful of table salt, and 1 teaspoonful of Dunn's River jerk seasoning. It was delicious and the brown Basmati Rice was even better than the white one. My blood glucose level was very good this morning and read 6.7 millimoles per litre on my True You blood glucose monitor.

    Dear Friends,

    I'm really well and healthy and Coronavirus and COVID-19 free but I had a very hyperglycaemic blood glucose level today of 14.3 millimoles per litre.

    I've been having food products delivered by the kindness and compassion of my nice little evangelical church run by the charity the London City Mission who support struggling, Disabled and disadvantaged people of the Christian faith.

    I think I didn't pray emphatically enough with discernment when I included a lot of complex carbohydrates in my list for the Pastor like starchy cereals, white bread and ready meals which contain glucose and sodium and very high sugar fruit water-dilutable squashes.

    I've not failed entirely on the Low-carb diet, however, because I've been eating boiled egg salads with raw onion, peppers and radishes and beetroot and have even incorporated Brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower into my dietary repertoire.

    I'm praying all the time for wisdom and self-control and enough discipline to adhere to and comply by DebraSue's kind advice many posts ago on Type 2 Life when she was still a member of the Diabetes Forum.

    I'm praying for scientific wisdom from above to counteract the effects of this dreadful virus that is plaguing God's children worldwide, too.

    God bless you all in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord and Happy Easter.

    Fond regards, Mr John David Baker sufferer of moderate to severe Asperger's Syndrome and adult ADHD.

    Great to hear your well. My London friends are ok too.
    I'm dreading any bad news as not able to attend funerals of any of my very very dear friends I left to migrate back to hometown. I do miss them all and the good days especially.

    Woke this morning with loads of side pain. I suspect gallbladder attack. If I wasn't fearful of all the anxiety waiting to be seen at A&E I'd get myself down there. I'm more comfortable at home, if there is any comfort to have. I'd rather be at home. At least I can hv distraction of family til it passes. Fingers crossed.

    Hi Vicky hope your pain has now gone . Ron has started taking cbd oil . He’s been on it for three weeks now . Not noticed any change yet but it’s only early days . A few weeks ago Ron had some bad news his mum phoned to say that one of his uncles has died from the corona virus. Needless to say Ron was very quiet for the rest of that day. He’s been trying to keep himself busy in the garden with all this good weather . Also Ron hasn’t lost any weight for months (12 stone dead). Yet none of his trousers fit him anymore . He bought a new pair last year and hasn’t worn them until now . He’s having to wear a belt . When we got them they fitted perfect .

    It is now Saturday 18th April 2020 Anno Domini in the afternoon and I'm cooking organic white rice with a few cardamom pods (green) and some fresh sea salt. I'll add jerk seasoning to it when it is done. I've got to watch my carb intake I know but I love spicy rice. It is the nicest thing ever to eat. I feel as fit as a fiddle today, though.

    Good Morning to all my lovely friends on the Type 2 Life thread of the http://www.diabetes.co.uk Forum,

    I orally administered all my morning prescriptive medication this morning and did my washing up and meticulously swept the kitchen, sitting room and bedroom areas of vinyl flooring in my one-bedroomed council flat. I also had a nice, cool glass of orange squash with my tablets.

    @tina_marie that painful episode was treated with 4hrly dihydrocodeine and fizzy paracetamol. Then a sleep and then sipped drinks or fruit yogart.
    I'm looking forward to a grocery shop next week containing my favourite proteins. I'm bored with chicken, for now.
    Has Ron been treated go any surprised cullunary experiments or are you both trying to stick to mainly the same reliable meals? I wouldn't blame you as easier to think whem doing the same. Especially when shopping for ingredients.
    Little one has tried peanuts/mixed nut spread on toast. More reason to get schools reopened.

    Ron gets his meals from Wiltshire farm foods. He can pick what he wants and gets them delivered . He’s back on boring cereals for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch. Last Saturday he had a cf flare up , spent the whole day in bed asleep. Sunday he wasn’t much better but is now recovered until the next time . With the good weather he’s spending it in the garden . Today he’s planting out his strawberries.
