5.3 here today.
I mucked up my repeat prescription and combined with a review because I’m coming off the blood thinner I was without any meds for a couple of days. I felt a bit poorly, but all sorted and back to normal now.

Scary stuff, Henry. Prescriptions are always a bit of a worry for me. I haven't got it wrong yet, but the doctor has when he rejected my request for life sustaining hydrocortisone one time. He was very appologetic, but that didn't do anything to reassure me. Never had a problem since, but I am now always wary.

Another 5.3 for me this morning.

With the GP’s agreement I reduced the Metformin by half some time ago, so had a bag containing a number of boxes of Metformin. I took this to be my meds for another two weeks before the next renewal. When I sat down on Sunday night to fill my pill box I realised my mistake. Yes, lesson learnt.

06:18 BS 6.1 :) Just about to sit & eat breakfast: on with it straight away as I woke up hungry!:p:D;)

Feel the tide is turning as I felt a bit better towards the end of yesterday & stayed up a bit longer, about 20:30? :rolleyes::)

Just as well as you need to be well & well rested in the week before a vaccine, there’s something I didn’t know before, for your body to create the antibodies otherwise, the vaccine hasn’t done its job! I rechecked my confirmation text message & the first one is actually on 08/03/21: good thing I checked then; gives me the rest of this week to get over this completely & another week of sleeping as well as I can before my vaccine, then! :rolleyes:

A Very Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day! ;)

Sorry! :oops: Short & sweet today: breakfast is cooling down nicely & calling to me now!:p:D;)

Morning all. :D 4.9 here moving swiftly up to 5.5.

Nothing much planned for today, except for Welsh conversation later. They’re still jabbing Group 5 locally, so I’ll just carry on looking forward to having the vaccine. :p

Morning

Was 5.6 at 5:44am so had 2 Lifts, just before breakfast at 6:45am was still 5.6 so had 2 more Lifts and tried 1.5U with breakfast again, wish my body would just make a decision on what it wants and needs from me!

Phoned grandad after tea last night and that's him all packed for moving on Monday, he had to get a new microwave last week as his gave up and that's how he does his porridge for breakfast so he nipped to Tesco in the next town to get a new one, we have nowhere here that sells microwaves!

Morning all after the best sleep I’ve had for a while. Still feel tired though but forced myself to get up! 6.5 today. Terrible day yesterday, weather wise that is, looks slightly better only in so much we haven’t got gale force winds, still damp. Waiting in for a parcel today, Mr Eggy getting a new camera. He is like a little boy! It’s taken him months to decide between two, hope he’s got it right after looking at reviews, YouTube channels etc etc. I’ll mostly be being ignored today! ;) Have a wonderful Wednesday whatever you’re waiting for.:)

Well with no change to anything I did yesterday and waking up at 4:30 this morning.... 5.3!

Been a long time since I had a waking figure so close to a HS!

Morning

Feeling quite low and down in the dumps after a bit of an argument with Bruce yesterday, I received a call not long after dinner, only answered as was intrigued with it being a number from a nearby town, it was a call about booking a vaccine, after a chat with them I decided I would pass on booking and I'd go on the list to be seen at the GP surgery in my town when they have a vaccine and hold a clinic, I haven't been out in 11 months and leaving the house is daunting alone so I couldn't accept the offer of going to the local hospital as I REALLY CAN'T bring myself to get on public transport, both my mum and his mum understand and agree I have to do what I am comfortable with but it's almost as if he hates me for it, he's also not happy that he hasn't heard a word about his yet :(

Anyway its a 9.2 for me this morning, insulin experiment with breakfast yesterday was VERY interesting, as you know I started out at 8.4 and by dinner was 9.0 so had I been in range to start with it would have been spot on meaning I was getting off with 1U:20g! Odd! I've only taken 2U this morning so will report tomorrow how thats worked out!

If you haven’t been out for that long going somewhere local will be a massive achievement x

Morning all. Well after a high bedtime reading for no reason (sensor 10.8, finger prick 12.6!) and 2 correction doses, it has stayed stubbornly hovering over 10 all night. Feel tired and fuzzy headed as unable to sleep and when i did drop off my alarm woke me to check i wasn't hypo after the correction doses.:( Still 10.8 this morning. Have had a bigger correction so fingers crossed it comes down. Will have to up basal again i think.

7.1 for me this morning although I was 6.3 half an hour earlier but dropped off back into the deep sleep I had come from. So nice to have some really sound sleep and not be waking up wondering if I am hypo and should I scan. Hope it signals me getting over whatever has been ailing me. Still suffering muscle fatigue today in legs and arms but not needing painkillers anymore. I had a slug of Gaviscon last night before bed and wonder if that was responsible for my better sleep. Feel like I need another swig now though but waiting until LIbre shows me my insulin is kicking in to eat breakfast first.
@freesia I also unexpectedly went up to 11.6 at bedtime (with upward vertical arrow!!) and shot myself 1.5 correction units. I applaud you for setting an alarm to check. I was naughty and let it get on with it. I've just got over a spell where I was so worried about nocturnal hypos which were happening regularly, that I was subconsciously waking myself up to check every hour.... and yet a few nights on the trot without a hypo and I am now perhaps being more cavalier and not checking when I probably should. Strange how we perceive risk and deal with it.

A busy day in the offing - I need to get three proposals out the door by the end of Friday so need to crack on with them. 6.0 for me at 06:54. A sunny but very windy day in West Berks this morning.

@Pine Marten Happy Birthday - I hope you have a great day
@MAC2020 Congrats on the HS
@eggyg What did Mr Eggyg treat himself to?
