Absolutely! Someone sitting behind a desk in France has decided what we want. He’s also decided that in the UK all drivers are called Dave, in France it’s Pierre, Germany it’s Hans etc.
Henry my driver today was Jason I said do you drive an Argonaut.:D

Arrrggghhhhh! :eek: WHAT a time of it I’ve had this morning! Firefighting like mad as my BS sky rocketed & is SO slow in coming back down!:(There’s just no other emoji to express my feelings, a rare double:( from me! It’s the morning basal: tried to do all 80 units LR in one jab when I usually do it in 2 as the max dose you can dial up is 60; kept the needle in & dialled up the other 20 but, had to twist/bend it in my thigh to SEE 20 on the dial! Got it & when I pulled it out the needle was bent & a stream of insulin came out as well: won’t be doing THAT again & go for 2 jabs as usual; didn’t know how much of the last 20 units I actually got so, for safety, left it to see what’s what later! Well at 2 hours after breakfast it was a WHOPPING 22.5!:eek::eek::eek: Stuck in a scary 20 units of NR & kept testing! BS was going down but, SO slowly. So, at 12:53 BS 16.5 I cooked lunch, delayed it to see what’s what, & munching away now after I put in my usual bolus plus a guess of 12 units LR, no idea if that’s right, as it’ll be 6pm before evening basal & I could be firfighting for HOURS yet? NOW I’ll have to keep a close eye on BS in case 12 units of basal is too much but, then again it could be too little? Who knows?:rolleyes:o_O

Oh! I’d better explain why my basal is SO high since I last actually posted my LR doses? I’ve kept getting recurring no. 3’s & digestion problems even with the switch to normal release metaformin & after the last bout about 6 to 8 weeks ago I just didn’t restart, supposed to stop & then restart with diarrhoea after it’s passed because of the risk of severe dehydration, it was a while before BS started to rise without it & once it did it also, took me a while to find the right dose of increased basal to compensate: basal doses have now been 80 & 80 at 6 am&pm! My liver had worsened a bit with the last tests, at my health centre maybe 2/3 months ago, & I’ll find out what state it’s at now with yesterday’s blood test but, I can’t seem to tolerate metaformin now? :rolleyes:

It’s hopping madly on my toes kind of day today! Sigh! Ok, I just can’t help another :( , I’m afraid!:oops:
Oh Lanny please be careful not worth taking the chance trying to do it in one go, I used to have to inject
double when I was first DX and was warned about what you did never tried it. I don`t or any of us need to
tell you 22.5 is not for any of us especially you.

Take care stay safe, play some golf see if you can get a hole in one.:oops: xx

06:04 BS 10.9 but, to be expected as I ate dinner, hungry, about an hour later when BS had dropped a little bit 18:10 BS 6.2 with the same bolus, 22 units NR & then, stuck in -4 reduction of LR, 76 units, for safety while I slept: knew at some point there wouldn’t be an overlap anymore & BS would be higher in the morning! :rolleyes: Back up to the full 80 units of LR now & stuck in an extra +2 of NR, 16, for half an oatcake as I woke feeling stuffed & don’t want breakfast yet! Stuffed emoji!

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

Good morning. A bit worrying yesterday. 4.9 in the evening and on repeated tests every 5 minutes, dropped to 4.1 before recovering. So ok, but lower than I am used to.

This morning at 6:15am it was 5.0

I think today will be a better day.

Morning all, a slightly better 8.3 today. I've always been on the higher side in the morning anyway.

Morning folks. 6.2 today. Lovely looking morning so far, that cold wind looks to have dropped, at last!

Had bad news about the car, it is one of the fuel injectors that’s kaput. Apparently, and I think this must be a technical term, they are a bugger to get out, and may need a specialist team! In other words, will cost a fortune. Mr Eggy expressed his disappointment that a 3.5 year old prestige car with 21k on the clock should have this problem. They are going to contact Jaguar to see if they’ll ‘ contribute’ to the cost! We’re not happy. We don’t have a car as all their courtesy cars are in use and two have been in an accident! So, rucksacks on our back to do the “big” shop today. Might have to cut down on the bottles of vino! ;) Only light objects allowed. Lindt 85% definitely comes in to that category!

Have a good day all. TGIF to all you wage slaves, and here’s to the last weekend of staying at home for us English. Apologies to the home nations who don’t have that freedom yet.:confused:

An injector should definitely last much much longer than this. Jaguar ought to cover the whole cost.

That must be so frustrating. It’s crazy that we’ve been split like this. The same rules should be in place for all four home nations, it’s just causing chaos. Fingers crossed you’ll hear something soon. If your hair is anything like mine and Mr Eggy’s ( wild) you’ll be starting to frighten the neighbourhood kids! Only 5 more sleeps until my crop, I can’t blooming wait.

We aren’t happy at all. The damn car has hardly been used since it’s service in September, it’s done about 1k miles in the last 6 months. Let’s see what they say next week. At the moment the injector is “ soaking” to see if it will come out easier. Mr Eggy, who before retiring was an engineer, has asked them to let him know when they are going to attempt to take it out, as he wants to be there to make sure they don’t break it or anything else!

The Stormont assembly isn’t functioning. Right from the start it was obvious that the whole country should follow the same rules. Policy in S/W/NI is mostly based on doing the opposite of what’s done in England. Yes, extremely frustrating.

It’s surely ridiculous that a relatively new car with low mileage should have an injector that’s stuck fast? After 10 years maybe, but it’s designed to be removed and replaced. Preaching to the converted, I know.
