    Welcome to the family. At least you tested and have an idea of what may have caused the reading so you are well on the way to lower numbers. Was the wine good?

    11.2 but not surprised. The constipation from hell. Fibrogel, buscopan, ciprofloxcin, paracetamol and codeine. Suspected bacterial infection in digestive system. Oh and horrific pain.

    Just a day in the life of me. It seems.

    I was riddled with sugar before insulin so rot was looming. Now problems after problems keeping up with my morbidly obese body. Op cannot come soon enough!!!!!! :)
