Welcome to the forum @VerityM . Great to have you on here.
It is often a tiny snippet of info that catches me on these events, and I think why didn’t I know that before. It would have been so helpful.

Last night it the credit card account analogy for me. If you buy stuff in a card (use up some of the glucose in your system) it has to be paid back later (you have to restock your glucose later). You can preload you care, or repay afterwards but a balance has to be found.

Well I've always used money as the denominator generally, where eg a big dish of trifle is expensive and the same dish of shredded lettuce would be cheap and all of us only have a certain amount of money to spend at any time. Being T1, money relates firstly to the amount of insulin needed to counteract the carbs in whatever, but also to eg my weight, length of life, happiness and all the other things in my life.

@SB2015 I missed the the big online event but is it possible to put my name down for the next available group please?I’m totally hopeless with technology - must be because I have diabetes as I’m so frustrated that everything else has been blamed on that!! - broken bones, MRSA and an arthritic hip! I have managed Zoom so I’m not a lost cause

Hi Annemarie

Sorry you missed the last Big1 event. I don’t think I can register you for the event, but if you email Matt at the SW office (Matthew.Robert@diabetes.org.uk) he will make sure that you get the email notification when the registration opens for the next one.
