    Morning all, 7.2 this morning. I hope your all getting over all your coughs and colds. Still in a lot of pain and I’m doing a good impression of a zombie!! I’m very grateful I have such a great consultant, as he’s going to try to get me in before Christmas. Side effect of medication. I will be glad when this flare up goes!
    Have a great day.

    Good morning all. Blood sugars were 5.4 this morning.

    @karen8967 -- How are you doing? The high blood sugars you've seen yesterday must have been a bit scary.
    @paula121s -- Hope the steroid injection helps and you will have it sooner rather than later.

    @paula121s How I'm so glad he is able to do something for you and fingers double crossed it's before Christmas and you can then enjoy things without being in constant pain.
    My chest with the meds is a little easier not coughing every breath now and getting some sleep actually lied down last night first time in a while, run out of simple linctus phoned surgery last night for another prescription its upto doctor if I can have another bottle will have to phone later this morning to see if he's left me a prescription or not! I know bronchitis has to run its course but some relief with linctus is better than coughing my head off all day and night! Anyway that's enough of me moaning hopefully we each have a good doctor and we both will be able to get some relief you from your pain and me and this so and So coughing take care Paula and we both should be improving by Christmas! Kathleen

    Hi everyone, I just wanted to say thank you for your ongoing support. I know my other health issues are not what this site is all about. But I guess it does affect my diabetes. It’s really good that we are supported by everyone here. All the likes and positive encouragement really helps me. Thank you Paula
