    sometimes think I could stop taking the magnesium but the more I titrate I’m now down to one again the more I can feel it coming back, took only one last night and had done so for last four days and had beginnings of cramp only woke me once so not that bad but going back up to two.!
    Bgs today 4.8 rushing off in a bit two morning hospital appointments with mum this morning
    @ianpspurs im with Julie on this - these elder ladies are tough mine is 88 just after Christmas but we worry about them - they’re our mums.

    Thank you, I will admit to occasional jealousy of ‘normal’ diabetics. I just get my levels down to 6ish then it’s time for more chemo! 11 years of cancer treatment caused steroid induced diabetes, but I’m still upright and breathing and defying the medics.

    Gee, my post came before I saw the further information. Seems to me fbg is the least of your worries and getting down to "normal" levels is as Ron Weasley would say "bloody brilliant". Huge respect and take care you are clearly something very special young lady.

    Thanks @DJC3 @Bubbsie @philchap1 and @shelley262

    I am fine but may well be asleep before the end of the day. It’s my team you should feel sorry for as I’m very grumpy when tired!

    Morning all. 5.6 today. Bright and chilly here. Long walk for me.
    Hats off to @tickeldpinknot for all you are going through.
    Resorting to the app on the phone today as the broadband company is holding us to ransom ( upgrade to fiber or well cut u off ) . Another chore to find a provider that works in the sticks.
    Hope everyone is well. Your BG is ace. Have a great day.

    4.6 this morning. Think that’ll be the lowest of the day as have the stress of keeping one of Ellie’s school friends entertained all day today, and of course it’s wet and miserable so the garden is out of bounds :banghead:

    Well done, keep going, nobody ever said it was easy. You are an inspiration to others to shy to post.

    Morning All. 5.8 which is in the satisfactory zone.
    I was meant to be going home today but my chemo friend very sick last night so staying at least another day. [email protected] sending you hugs and utter respect, I have seen up close and personal the effect of chemo on my friend. It takes amazing courage and resiliance. Be very kind to yourself.
    To everyone else out of sorts hope you are soon back to your old selves.
    Have a good Thursday. Stay well, stay safe.

    Autumn isn't my favourite season either so off to Amsterdam next week, more of a change of scene than of climate.
