World Diabetes Day 2018 is a distant memory now but I’m still pondering some of the negative feelings I had during that time period. This year, I felt the community was more polarized than ever before. The type 1 community seemed to want more and more separation from the type 2 community.
Since the Flash glucose monitor, the Freestyle Libre was launched in the UK in 2014 I have been watching, following and learning from all that the NHS, Diabetes UK and JDRF UK have done to make sure this revolutionary piece of diabetes technology ends up in the hands of many people with diabetes and not just those who can afford it.
I have just had 4 nights in a row of glorious uninterrupted sleep and the world looks so much brighter. Pleases the Gods I haven’t jinxed it!! Since the Christmas break, my blood sugars were doing a-mazing trampolining and the alarm on my CGM to alert me that my blood sugars are high or low but mostly high.
