    Yes, Diabeticliberty,we type 2s have much to cope with too.The most frustrating thing for me is that I was never obese and was just newly retired from a very active job when diagnosed,but sixteen years ago there wasn't so much finger pointing in the press.Because of the diet I've adopted in many people's opinion I'm now getting too thin.(I'm not,5ft 2 and10st+)This is usually voiced by those who could do to lose some weight themselves.The great thing about this forum is we share our problems so can battle on.My mission is to show the hps that I was right all along despite being a little old lady!!;):) Just amend that to opinionated little old lady!

    The flu vaccine is made with inactivated flu virus. Believe they only use the virus parts which promote the immune response. Since the virus is no longer live it cannot give a person flu. Would agree with your GP which does not happen very often. LOL

    Good food and fine wine are the building blocks which are held together by the glue of fine weather. All of these go together to make an excellent weekend. What are you waiting for? :)

    Yeah I now know that. The thing was though at the time when the day after the injection I put 2 and 2 together and came up with 2222 it seemed to make sense. Spooky things happen in my alternative reality. It's a bit like the Twilight Zone with fly fishing and a labrador

    Well, don't beat yourself up too much about it - I had exactly the same experience as you, and I personally know a couple of other people who've reacted to it in the same way. And I got 'flu followed by pneumonia when I avoided the jab, so this year I've been a good little patient and done as I'm told (which is very, very rare indeed!).

    Good Evening everyone
    Busy day forgot to post BG this morning 6.4. Before evening meal BG 5.2, 2 hrs later 12.7 massive jump had Salmon with sweet chill sauce chips small portion marrowfat peas and a slice of pumkin and carrot loaf with butter. Loved every mouthful but theirs always a price to pay!
    Try harder tomorrow. K

    good morning all :)

    4.6 today

    you'd think we would have had a good sleep after all that painting yesterday....

    good points - most of the blue paint splats have washed off (except for the direct hit on my watch), and the walls and ceiling seem to be drying nicely matt. :)

    dubious point - dried splats were darker blue than expected from the paint in the pot and the shade card :meh:

    potential downsides - Mum hasn't seen it yet (it's an upstairs guest room), and it may need another coat :arghh:

    oh well - stuffed chicken for dinner today, and a mocha cream pud. made with real dark chocolate for afters ;)

    მე მიყვარს ყველა ჩემი hippy ბედნიერი დიაბეტური ყვავილების ძალაუფლების ვარდები და იმედი მაქვს, რომ ისინი მეც მიყვარს. After drinking rather too much whisky last night I have awoken with the mother of all headaches. I think the whisky might have been off. My head has just pounded 3 and a bit times. My blood sugar upon waking was three and a bit. 3.8mmols to be precise. Today I have 24 tarpon flies to construct as I have an order from a client who is going to South America next week fishing for them. I have never fished for tarpon in my life and my only understanding of the flies is that they need to be very big and very bright. Lord help me and more to the point Lord help him. These things are gonna look rough
