    Hug for anxiety but you are so much better than OK. However, I sincerely hope Mr PM needs a hug to overcome anxiety later today:angelic:

    Same here, think that was the cause of the stomach pain too. We’ll be ok eventually I know, it’s just a bit frustrating atm isn’t it!

    @ianpspurs I know your Highflyer Farms post wasn't for me but I enjoyed reading about it and its relationship to Highflyer the horse, who won races at Newmarket before Tattersall bought him.

    4.6 today. I read the article which enraged @Debandez. Took it to mean just because, at a certain level, carbs ain't good for diabetics doesn't mean none is obviously best. Some more fat than has been the norm might not be too bad for you but bacon, eggs and double cream 4 times a day ain't good either. Never mind carbs/macros, be nutrition led. It clearly mentions real food and supports veg and salad = winner. From my experience weight loss - which it harps on about - is key. Does anyone seriously think a banana now and again is the work of the devil or as bad a pile of sugar cubes? That article is very much the wrong hill to die on IMHO.

    Oops. Just picked up and drank the wrong coffee! Julie's with normal milk and full sugar caramel. Just checked bg and suddenly shot up to 6.8 - wow! More steps needed asap. Climbed to 9.2 after 40 mins - impressive!
