    9.4 I’m off work today as ended up at GP yesterday lots of aches pains and indigestion which I feel is anxiety related due to stress. Not good for BS levels I’m afraid

    I know it’s a realisation that I’ve got to change my job and look after my mental health more than I do. Thanks for the reply ...

    Looking at your info I can see why your job would be stressful. Could be a little of the cobbler themself going poorly shod. As a retired senior teacher I recognise that from some of my colleagues. Please keep posting as there are many on here willing to help. (looked for a hug emoji couldn't find it)

    Numbers change everyday. Hopefully it will get lower tomorrow. Our emotions do play a part in our blood sugar from my experience.
