    Technically by changing the topic in this thread you've just hijacked again ;)

    I seriously don't get the hijacking thing. Topics migrate!

    Yep, just like any real life face to face discussion, honestly expecting anything different is just plain daft.

    :confused::confused::confused: - who ? has issued you with an official warning
    As have checked and no warning has been issued ...

    Folk that do know me locally, to be diabetic "do" loook and peek in my trolley
    when I am out in local stores shopping .

    Acts as a self prompt reminder I know I am diabetic when ... [folk peek/look in my trolley]
    As topic headed titled .
    Very topic related and NO hijack of this thread at all .

    When you have a cupboard full of biccies, leftover christmas cake and chocolates and the b****rs still go right past them and eat your last 2 squares of 90% choc - "because it had been there a week I thought you didn't want it" grrrrrrrrr

    I actually lied to my son that the dark chocolate is for diabetics only and would give him diarrhea! It's bad enough him and the wife eat all my frozen raspberries they can keep their dirty fingers away from my chocolate!

    Anyway, you know you are a diabetic when the first thing you think of when you see food you like is how many carbs it contains.

    Andy12345 an 'official warning' ISNT a pm from Giverny .

    To clarify - any mod/admin person can pm a forum member to explain things .
    As in your repeated question with regards to hyjacking .
    .
    Or to ask for a certain behaviour in posts to be refrained 'from' .
    This pathway is only used if needed or warranted .

    An official warning - is an automated warning issued for forum rule breaking .

    You were 'not' issued an official warning Andy12345
    Hope this explanation can explain all .

    You want something to eat low in carbs and find some coconut in the pantry,you pour into your mouth and get more than you expected,you can't breath,you can't chew,and someone catches you,what a mess,you don't get a kiss lol.

    Oh yeah! My kids who don't "like" dark chocolate suddenly wanted mine and would have happily finished the bar despite having their own sweets and cake in the tin which makes my mouth water every time they eat it! Imagine the hell it was making it!
    Anyway, you know you're diabetic when...... You decline rice and get a 20 minute lecture from colleagues about how fat is bad and all diabetics need to eat carbs! If you read in the papers about some teacher who's mowed down her colleagues with an Uzi...... That'll be me! Lol!
