    4.9 at 09:00, after the best night's sleep I've had for at least 3 weeks.

    Discovered that my new painkillers (Nortriptyline) can either raise or lower bg levels, so maybe it's not my doing :roll:

    7.0 Not at all happy with this. My BGs are going up over the last few days and I think it's stress.

    5.2 at 08:00 BST.

    I'm a little relieved at that - yesterday I was in the 4s all day, first time ever. As I said, my new painkiller can affect BGs, so I was worried it might keep going down! :lol:

    Strange woman! :D

    An appropriate caution, Josie. Yes, a touch base point - but also if a person asks for a suggestion of what's helped others keep an am number low I think that's a good dynamic that can be followed through. But agreed - not about judgement.

    Mine was 6.1 today -- guess my snack last night didn't help...

    Bowell - definitely not a warning, more a note to let people know not to feel bad if they have slightly higher numbers. I think some of the mods, and ourselves, were a little cautious newbies would find the numbers hard to reach and perhaps feel a bit down or like it was a bit of a competition.

    So no, not a warning - just a 'please don't be disheartened if your levels don't match' note.

    Mine was 4.4. Very happy with as had lowered lantus about 4 days ago.
    Quick question - can stress lower your bs as well as higher it? it seems to have done that with me.
