Ok, hide sight is a wondrous thing, and as those on chat know I've had a few hypos in my time. Anyhow, some of them tended to turn out quiet amusing, and since many on here seem to fear hypos,…Continue

A little ride around Yorkshire! (Tour de France Stage 1)

Posted on July 15, 2014 at 3:30pm 6 Comments

Been a little quiet, but thought I would bring everyone up to date with the infamous Tour ride.

Well, the night before I have no idea what was going on with me, sky high levels all night. I had acquired a CGM for the ride off my DSN (CDE) and the alarm was driving me up the wall every hour waking me up. Ran corrections all night long and even changed my infusion set. Took till 5am to get them down to 162 (in US money)...but for most the night was over 280, very annoyed but all I could…


Not long now!

Getting ready for the Tour de France eep...not long now! And got me thinking, where do we all put our pumps? Me, well some people wear their hearts on their sleeves, I wear my pancreas :P…

Can't believe we weren't friends yet, after such a long time. Just had the same happening with Curlysarah yesterday, we talk in chat all day long but never had the idea to actually become friends officially.

Nya, congrats on being featured. every week we feature a variety of members for one reason or another, or just because. this morning as my husband and I were driving to get our blood work done, we were listening to the BBC radio hour, and this guy was on who was telling about how he recreated the 1914 Tour of Italy bike race, and how difficult it was with wooden bikes and how he made a similar bike, and did the race. the brakes were made from wine corks. lol. anyway, I was wondering if you'd heard of him, it was fascinating.
