    @merishar. So sorry to hear about your wife. That stress is bound to affect your FBG's. Wishing you both well.

    Right, down to business. I woke up this morning feeling hideous. Sweating, shakes, nauseous, banging headache...full on hypo. BG was
    3.6 when I tested. WAY too low for me. Recovering now. Good day folks.

    That sounds awful, @PatsyB. I hope you're feeling better soon.

    I got 3.7 this morning, which threw me off a bit. Tested again, and got 4.3. I'm happy to split the difference.
