Behaving again - that's nice to see! It seems you only misbehave when I keep my lardy behind fixed to the sofa, eh? Can't compete with all this activity I've been doing lately? No need to throw a wobbler (literally!) with all those hypos, and you're still sneaking them up on me, jumping out from behind the meter with a 2.2 out of the blue! Well, at least I know what I'm supposed to do, but you're still not making things very easy when it comes to calculating how much insulin you expect. I don't suppose this is likely to end any time soon is it? I'm stuck with you, right? As long as you're good, I'll let you stay. What do you mean, I don't have a choice?

Tsk! Honestly! Thirteen units of novorapid for one salmon and tomato sandwich? What's goin on? That's normally eight, possibly nine units, but never thirteen. And what's all this about a 7.4 mmol/l before lunch, after one miserable slice of toast and a five mile walk? You've been like this for a couple of days now, and it doesn't matter how generous I've been, it's never been quite enough for you has it? I'm expecting a BIG improvement tomorrow, so think on!

Woohoo!! In your face diabetes! Haha! 5.6% HbA1c, despite all your efforts - completely unchanged since my last test in October! Seems that it's sent you a bit quiet since Thursday - all those 5.5 mmol/l pre-meal? You just stay like that and I'll be happy. Mind you, you did dip below 4 a couple of times yesterday, just because I went for a run. Oh, and there was that evil 11 just before my run too - just for a bowl of bran flakes? Tut!

Wotwotwot! What! One measly slice of buttered toast and you still don't think six units of novorapid is enough? That's only 16 grams of carbohydrate for goodness sake! 10.3 after two hours is just not playing fair. OK, maybe there are two or three mugs of tea thrown in there too, but that's hardly carb-overload...

OK, so I decide to go out for a run to get the levels down a bit. Absolutely knackered (OK, I'm not very fit at the moment, don't rub it in), then what do you say? 10.5 afterwards! All that hard work for an increase? Sheesh! You'd better pay me back for that by improving things over the next day or so...!

What is this all about? When you get together with a few of your mates you are uncontrollable! Take yesterday, for example - normally, you're pretty well-behaved during the day, but just because I happened to be amongst several other people with diabetes, you get all self-centred and puffed up. It's all about you, isn't it? What on earth was that 13.2 about? And the 10s too, don't think I don't notice that extra digit that pushes me into double figures. You'll probably blame the Stella Artois, I know how your mind works - blame the Belgian Beer, it's what you always do! Well, let me tell you, I'm not going to put up with it in future, so just mind your manners. At least you had settled down by the time I got on the train, at 5.5., but then you got all mopey and miserable and dropped me down to 3.8, tut! I'll be keeping an eye on you in future, me laddo, so don't think you got away with it just because I was enjoying myself!
