5.8 today in the clinic, first time in the 5's since I was pregnant 23 years ago. Far easier with the Dexcom system to help out though.

Yes, dobe, it's worth it since I feel so awful when my BG is either high or low, and forget about getting a good night's sleep. I think that feeling well (most of the time!) is the real reward for being in the 5 Club.

Thanks, Barbara. Good luck tomorrow!

Trudy, that's just great. All the effort and all the testing and all the determination to toe the line... it really is worth it when you get a great result like that, isn't it?

Fantastic Trudy, well done! My endo app't. is tomorrow, we'll see how I did with holidays/cruise.
