    :woot::woot::woot: Top work @BrianDoc absolutely delighted for you and you have just made a huge hole in the "glass ceiling" for all those people despairing of winning the fight against The D Monster. You just caught a whopper.

    That is a great turnaround, @BrianDoc . Jolly good show.
    You have graduated to one who advises newly diagnosed T2s.
    All power to you.

    Said somewhere else I've been having trouble with my memory, forgot my testing kit so no updates for a while.

    Congrats @BrianDoc

    This morning was a late test after some running around as I found my kit where I had left it at work. High at 7.2 but I had a very cheating meal last night as someone brought me a surprise Chinese takeaway to try and cheer me up and *every* single thing, even the soup, tasted sweet to me so I imagine they added sugar to everything.

    Hug for the tummy pain. Thank you for the tag. I couldn't in all honesty say I'm even remotely sorry about 4th place collapse (IF Spurs aren't Spursey on Sunday). Fbg known unknown here. Play nice, share you toys but have fun Team D

    Morning all. Very brief posting today. 8.4 last night. 8.4 this morning. I don't need to say any more, do I? Getting a bit disillusioned.
