    This is suppose to be a good area. I'd hate to see a bad area. ;) I think they are bored now their traded in pension has been spent so creating. Maybe fighting with each other has exhausted itself so its our turn as a neighbour? I pity them. My bgs have improved since I've increased my insulin but the idea is to reduce my insulin need not increase it.
    I'm telling myself they cannot create for ever so I'll have a chance to reduce my insulin soon. Hopefully!
    2 side affects to stress additionally to higher bgs. I'm not impressed by their utter nonsense. Hoping police spoke some sense into them yesterday.

    8.3 this morning at 7.30am. Suffering from a horrible chest infection, so quite pleased with that reading.

    That's very promising. Increase must be a liver dump? Which can be blocked. :) :) :)

    I was wondering where you were. Hope not bad enough to have been in hospital? Lovely to see you back! Wishing you well. :)

    4.6 at the start of a fasting day. Managed to get some good exercise in last night, which has clearly driven down my bg level.

    Your partner is lucky to have your help, but please remember to look after yourself too. I hope the neighbour behaves. A fabulous 6.0:)

    10.2

    Frustrating but I guess if I just keep staying on the straight and narrow I shall see lower figures eventually. At least bedtime readings are in single figures now.

    Have a good day all.
