    Coronavirus

    Congrats Diana, Glad to hear you’ve had your second shot, noted you had to wait 15 minutes after the vaccine. BTW what vaccine did you have Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna. My daughter had the Pfizer-BioNTech and she had the same side effects as you, just a little worse, literally turned her over for a couple of days, she had to phone in sick. That’s the problem with the smartphone technology, irrespective of the age group, everyone has one these days, so, no one has time for a friendly chat any more, hence, why we all stare into our smartphones these days, I’m afraid those old days will never return. I also cancelled my dentist appointment. I had my first vaccine shot AstraZeneca in mid-January, and I’m still waiting for a letter of confirmation when to go and have my second shot done.

    My reading this morning was 139. I got my second Moderna vaccination yesterday, no side effects other than a sore arm. No fever, no nausea, no chills, no swollen Lymph Nodes, nor any vomiting. Yes to tiredness but then I am always tired.

    A 65 (3.6) today. I'm in one of my glucose vs insulin cycles again. My wake up readings have been low, so I've been decreasing my nightly Lantus dose to try and get my readings up. I was taking 77 units of Lantus every night at around 11 pm. I'm now down to 54 units, and my readings are still too low. This happens all of the time, and it won't be long before I find the correct dose and my readings will be back in the 70's, then, my readings will slowly rise again, so I'll need to increase my dose again. This is why I get irritated when the doctor asks me how many units I take every night, as if the number of units is always the same.🙄

    Coronavirus

    Vaccinations began here this week. After all the indepth teaching courses to all the health care workers to be involved even dress rehearsals ,two elderly people in a Queensland aged care home have been given four times the amount of the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine. They were injected by a doctor who has since been stood down. It was a nurse that noticed the issue & stopped procedings . The patients , a 94 yr old woman & an 88yr old man are being monitored while showing no adverse reaction so far. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-24/coronavirus-queensland-vaccine-overdose-aged-care-brisbane/13179280

    6.8 After testing my wake up reading, had a big breakfast of roasted vegetables & toast. Then went back to bed for another 5hour sleep. Woke up with the same reading. I intend testing more often after hearing of an 80 yr olds traumatic experience. she's in rehab after having her leg amputated. Its bad enough for a young person to adjust but how is an 80yr old to manage? she'd been through extreme pain for many months trying to save the leg but it just got worse. It began with poor circulation. she wouldnt tell me what her A1c had been but it couldve been higher as she'd often scoff at my food choices. She'd also insist that she was type1 as she had to go on insulin. I'm sure I'd forget I had D if I didnt post here daily... & I need my legs, so that was a horrible wake up call for me.

    I just tested 77. I used a swab to clean up, too lazy to wash my hands. I guess the alcohol brought it down cleanly??

    6.8 Listening to "overnights" on abc radio. The host Trevor Chappell ,discussed being caught out in the supermarket when talking to himself. To the onlooker he said " It's ok , I'm self employed & just having a staff meeting" FunDad, I dont envy roofers having to work in those low temps your experiencing.

    I just got my second dose. I got there about 15 minutes early for my second vaccination and I was just sitting down and my butt didn’t even touch the chair when they called my name. I got the shot from a student nurse from UConn and then waited the15 minutes. As I was sitting there waiting I looked around and everyone was staring at their smartphones as I was getting mine out to play solitaire. I was thinking that back in the old days we would be staring at the wall and twiddling our thumbs. Right now I just have a sore arm and the sniffles but I canceled my dentist appointment for tomorrow and my eye doctor's appointment for Thursday just incase I run a fever.

    Insulin Herb (Berberin)

    I have seen this product over social markets and I found out that this one is one of the best selling supplement all over global. Insulin Herb (Berberine) also known as the Ayurvedic Miracle Plant, has been traditionally used as medicine for centuries by the Indians and Chinese. Recent years, due to the increasing trend towards Natural Botany Solutions, Western societies have only been made aware of its impressive medicinal benefits. The anti-hyperglycemic potential of Berberine has been confirmed by multiple human studies. This highlights the ability of Berberine to support blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The growing numbers of research papers published in various prestigious journals, including the Journal of Metabolism, evaluated and confirmed the anti-diabetic potential of Berberine.

    88 New closing date for the house is March 26th. Roofers said they might get started later this week but most likely next week. Hopefully we can move the closing up a little after that's completed. I swear I've bought and sold a dozen houses in my life and none have ever come close to taking this long. Even my realtor said this was the longest one he's ever had.

    No, it doesnt bring out the warm & fuzzies for me , I almost cringe during these performances. Maybe its living in a high populated area that I see so much greed within some people that attract these offers of free stuff . Perhaps some people are just wired differently & live off the generosity of others, yet theres so many in unfortunate situations through no fault of there own yet try to get by without freebies. I realise those living in the outback or remote communities dont have access to items as we in the cities & suburbs & its these people I'd rather more help was made available . Theres organisations that are aware of the needs of those & have the ability to gather & distribute goods to them. We have The Flying Doctors Service & the Country Womens Association CWA which are two that I used to give to. They see where the need is & once they make an announcement goods will come flooding in. Here, I see people frequenting restaurants & the clubs to play poker machines etc while living in public housing & living off welfare. Food Aid has outlets in many suburbs selling food close to out of date etc. Patrons can get up to 5 bags of food for $2 or $5 a bag. I'm not sure which as I was gobsmacked that these people I know participate. Three women that I know own millions in assets & properties yet they line up for cheap food. Theres many christmas appeals in all regions yet those that line up for freebies are not disadvantaged. We've even heard of doctors in the next suburb get their Nanny/au pair to take their children to receive gifts from these functions. I dislike greedy people.

    7 My dog went to the groomers yesterday, so he's a really pretty boy now. Those groomers are really gifted people. He enjoys visiting there until it's time to go into the salon.. or maybe he just enjoys her chasing him & carrying him in there lol. He's even good to be bathed, dried & clipped but he hates having his nails done. He usually screams as if she's trying to cut his throat & he makes out he'll bite her, while she calmy carries on with the task. Yesterday was very different, there wasnt a bark nor bite about him. He was so quiet I could hear his nails being clipped. The difference was pride. Another male Cavalier arrived during his session & waited in the salon beside him, so my boy put on a very brave front.
