    Thank you. I am ok. Struggling with side effects of sugars this high. Am on steroids at the moment which doesn’t help and just been in a hospital for a week where they started me on insulin. I am hoping once well I will see an improvement in numbers

    Apology not necessary.
    Sometimes a break from the tedium of testing is just what is needed.
    Don’t let it be too big a break, though. You have been doing so well.

    Good morning
    Larry on phone 11.3
    Reader 10.7
    Finetest 7.9
    Larry reading 3 points over all day yesterday, he’s messing up my libre graphs, surely I can’t have 3 faulty sensors in less than a week
    At 7.9 looks like it’s going to be a gliclazide day after the gym, still waiting for hospital appointment

    If you have gone back to libre1 don't forget the delay between sensor and blood test with meter.

    5.1, have to be up to go out quite early - so naturally I've been vaguely awake since 5am. Sleep! Hah! Who needs sleep?

    (Me, I do, I need sleep!)

    Officially winter in UK:bigtears: 5.9 from Swipey - definitely not ok but equally neither carb nor COVID related according to Cronometer, my Lat Flow and PCRs from close family. @DJC3 enjoy the Advent Calendars, Dr Almond didn't have any this year. I couldn't eat a Hotel Choc/Montezumas even at gunpoint. @JohnEGreen hug for being probably too low for you. @DEBBIESCOTT helluva tough lady. You go girl but maybe proceed with caution?:angelic:. @Estragon, real men don't wear slippers - bet you also eat quiche and wear green wellies.:angelic:

    Morning All. Back after a break staying with my brother who I hadnt seen for over two years and who cooked up a storm. Tried to be careful but didnt test. This morning is a shocker though 7.8. My Advent calender is a tea one so that should be ok. Hope you are all well and being good, well better than me. Happy Wednesday All.

    You post deserves a pup pic.

    I found a stray magnum ice cream in freezer last night. Needed to make room for all the Christmas meat and poultry, and it would have been a shame to waste it. So I ‘waisted it’ instead. Which is why I have a deserved 7.6 fasting level this morning.

    oh and I didn’t enjoy the taste of the ice cream at all..
