    Mmhhh

    The same guys that tell me to eat more carbs
    & Forget to mention they'll make me sicker.

    Not to mention the B12, no doctor mentioned it.
    I had to find out for myself, as so many seem to.
    Then find it's at the lower end...not sure that would be picked up so easily if expected and hidden by the neuropathy of diabetes, if I'm honest.


    Read more then a few posts while investigating that, where people had been left until it was too late, to simply recover via diets/foods or supplement's

    Not saying medical science doesn't have a great deal of knowledge
    And i'd like think that statement you made WAS universal,
    but from my experience so far..not everyone is on the same page.

    We owe it to ourselves not to always take what we are told at face value " just because .."
    I was very guilty of that from docs

    But it has been my take from my experiences so far,
    And I think I'll be keeping it that way.

    Sorry to hear story about your dad
    Easy to see the sense of pride at how he grappled to be there as long as possible for you.

    Sadly too young an age, for both of you

    Thank you for the painting compliment...

    It is a lovely painting.

    6.0 @ 0650 this am.

    Why am I not surprised, Trump and his wife have Covid 19.
    I hope they recover well, but their experience is his Road to Damascus.

    Cat had not come in, he is supposed to start new course of antibiotics the morning, confusing instructions on the bottle. In French ofc Mixed it anyway. Cat in pink towel again. This time he obviously knows what is coming and is not compliant, but it's easier to administer half the quantity. Breakfast for Cat. Oh, MrSlim is up. Made tea for him, coffee for me and nut granola, second coffee, cat on lap. Too late for FBG this morning.

    My digital painting for today is in Procreate and Sketchclub

    "Peace and Love"

    A friend took a photo of two white swans almost in the heart shape, but then they twined their necks. So I have done this for her and I know she will love it. Thought I would share it with you :)

    Now I need a nap. I have been awake since 3am, but I did fall asleep at 6 pm last night, on the cat's orders who wanted me to come to bed so he could sit on my chest!

    Really?
    I don't watch news any more.
    Sorry if I sound cynical but I don't believe it...it's just news for the sympathy vote...
    I seriously do not believe anything on the news any more. I question everything I see. I take nothing on face value.

    Welcome to the thread. When I was first diagnosed I did three things immediately:
    Stopped eating anything white - potatoes, bread, rice, pasta, stuff with flour in - that sort of thing
    Nothing that said “light” or “low fat” or “Fat free” - usually packed with sugar
    Became an avid reader of food labels
    Some great ideas on this platform but essentially, keep a food log - carbs hide in dark corners of food and drink and gang up on you if you don’t watch out.
    Your are in a good place on this website and will feel yourself around. Good luck

    Thank you.

    Your art bit. Soggy Bananas, I like the humour from your resident art critic :) and now you have implanted that image it's hard not to agree, sorry. However Rock Pools are very difficult, I have tried in watercolour without success and had better results with Acrylics put on with a knife/credit card. Well done for trying and as usual distant hills are excellent.

    Good morning everyone from a mixed bag of a start in the dark and dangerous north

    The wonder wheel of bacon and eggs with home made fibreFlour beetroot bread came in at 5.2 this am

    Not made beetroot bread before but it’s great. Downside is that Mrs Miggins also likes it even though it’s primarily “that fake flour stuff”. Oh well - secret squirrel bread making it is.

    Youngest granddaughter today. We were meeting up with a couple of old friends today who are touring in their camper but they have decided not to travel any further north due to areas squeezing into lockdown. We are OK at present but Middlesbrough, just up the road is now surrounded by people in robes and bird shaped masks.

    Have a wonderful Friday, hope that storm Alex does not interfere too much with your weekend.
    Today, the last of the elderberries. Koffy
