Back 'on topic' having had the review at the end  from Ben - I conclude that on this forum, we actually already do exactly what he suggests we should do and would be good for us - ie write about our diabetes but not just once a week - whenever we need to!  LOL

Didn't think of that, but of course it's very true.

Snacks / MOVED: Sweets
« Last post by Pattidevans on Today at 09:41:54 AM »
This topic has been moved to Food, diet and weight management.

http://diabetes-support.org.uk/diabetes_forum/index.php?topic=7304.0 because it's a discussion on sweeties not a recipe.

General discussion / Re: my mini successful week

Everyone is different.

I do my best, as we all do.... and having a bit more knowledge than some of the T1s I have met in real life is a definite advantage.  It's knowledge that I wouldn't have had without this forum.  I've gained it from members and I've gained it from googling to answer other people's questions and from reading books I wouldn't have known about had they not been recommended by people here.

Anyway, thank you Paul for receiving the idea positively, I just thought that approached in the right way it could be helpful to some.  Let's see if anyone else is interested.

Insulin and medication / Re: Mystery hypo
« Last post by Pattidevans on Today at 09:20:01 AM »
I certainly had a lumpy buttock and the combination of massage and sonar most definitely set off hypos.  I did expect it cos of what had happened to Sedge.  Do you remember Sedge, you were hypo in the D clinic and ate all their biscuits etc... that was when the nurse had told you about pockets of insulin IIRC.

Ah... I've had one of those done, at the opticians, but I had to pay £30 for it.  I was having some problems with a retina that had threatened to detach at the time.  The result was reassuring.

Insulin pumping / Re: Peculiar happening.
« Last post by Pattidevans on Today at 09:13:26 AM »
I hate that they lecture, they are supposed to help us.  My Endo was going on about my results (admittedly too many hypos at the time) and said "of course it's too much insulin".   I was struggling, but you always get the feeling that they think you are doing it on purpose to run too low.  I should have said at the time "Why is it too much this month when it was the right amount last month?".  However, at least he sent me to work with the DSN.

Oh Pauline - my heart goes out to both of you.  What a mess!  I hope he can be sorted out sooner rather than later.  Do keep us updated.

Don't upset him by letting him know that everyone knows, but if appropriate tell him that Julian and I are sending positive thoughts.

grammabear -- that made me laugh -- i don't have that sort of issue in our casa -- but I have had sweets disappear when I needed them - and only 1 other culprit in the house  !!!

Yes, the same thing happens at my house.  Sometimes I will fix a plate of low carb food for my evening meal which I eat after my OH has gone to work in late afternoon.  Many is the time when I've gone to the fridge only to find the plate of food has "disappeared".  Then he says the next day - "Oh, it looked so good that I could not resist it."   :rolleyes:

LOL at that Paul.

Next time sweets or anything needed diabetically disappears - ask Dianne to look up the number of the local council rodent exterminator for you.  When she asks why tell her dead seriously that you don't want to worry her, but think you must have an infestation of rodents.  When she says OMG - why? say that since your sweeties have started mysteriously disappearing, you can only conclude that you must have!

Oh - and can she ask the neighbours if they've got the same problem next time she sees them?

Jenny - You make me laugh.  What a wonderful sense of humour you have.
