Good to see everyone, apologies for my pump & diabetes is exasperating issues! I’ll try and get some Mio Advance sets this week and regroup.
I think what makes this forum is that everyone has problems with their equipment, their diet, their numbers, everything in fact. If you’re the sort of person who likes to give support where they can, it can be hard to say Ok, now it’s me that needs the support and I need to rant. But that’s what the forum is here for, If there weren’t people needing problems solving, there wouldn’t be the opportunity for people to help, and it doesn’t matter which side of the tennis court you’re standing on.
When I first got diagnosed, this forum was very new, and I didn’t find it at first. I ended up on an American one, where everyone seemed to have perfect numbers (and I mean, ridiculously low HbA1c's) and perfect diets. Nobody ever seemed to admit to having a problem, and it exuded unfriendliness and exclusivity. I exited fairly sharply, and fortunately found this one with a sigh of relief.

Absolutely agree @Robin!

Just realised this was the 2nd Sunday on my dog walk this morning.

I’ll send an invite around to folks who have been interested before (the log-in details will be the same).

Let me know if you’d like a copy of the invite everyone :)

We have had a couple of successful virtual meetups over the summer, and there seems to be appetite for more opportunities to gather ‘virtually’ for a bit of a chat and catchup via video ‘Zoom‘ meeting.

So I am suggesting we start to hold these regularly on the second Sunday of the month for a while, and see how it goes - until we are able to restart occasional face-to-face meetups.

The next one will be 3pm on Sunday 13th September.

These meetings will use the same meeting ID and password, so if you were part of the August meetup, you should be able to use the same details.

You would be very welcome to join us for 40 minutes or so.

Please let me know in a comment below if you’d like to join the meeting and I will send login details via Direct Message.
I would like to pop along please

Nice to see everyone again for a chat. Fingers crossed it proves easy for you to try the Mio Advances @Flower.

Not sure how much the restrictions may have lifted by next month... but maybe we are moving towards actual re-life meet-ups. Wouldn't that be nice! (and the coffee would be way better!)
Just out of curiosity- where abouts in the country do the in person meetings happen?

Hi
Just out of curiosity- where abouts in the country do the in person meetings happen?
Historically they happened all over, but most frequently in London, or in fairly central locations that lots could get to depending on where they lived.

Looking forward to when we can physically get together again!
