    An affray! How young are they going to get?

    Yes it is bad parenting. This child was left to ignore the parents and do whatever she wanted. Discipline plus love should be part of child rearing and the child would prefer to have it so they know their boundaries and feels secure. Bad behavior deserves mild punishment like a time out and then a talk and an explanation of why they were punished. They should also be told that their behavior was not acceptable and would not be tolerated. This should start as soon as the child is mobile with small time outs. Never tell a child that they are bad. It's their behavior that's bad and that's what you want to change. My son was 3 and across the street was a large family with 3 lovely girls a year apart. We often got the oldest to babysit. I would leave a bedtime snack and tell her when he should go to bed. This time the oldest had a prior commitment so she asked if her sister could come. I said yes. The next morning my son said he didn't want her to come any more. After some probing for the reason he said " I don't like her. She let me do whatever I wanted" Some other kids may have liked that but my son felt more secure and loved with boundaries. His kids are being raised the same way-- with boundaries and lots of love and people often comment on what nice boys they are

    What a terrible thing to witness. Hopefully this will lead to the parents getting some counseling and learning how to teach their child self control. We have a toddler that lives in our building that has some behavioral trouble. The parents work hard and there are good days and bad days but they are able to maintain some control at all times.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    90 this morning.
  6. Recently had to see my Doctors on my blood results, must’ve got to the surgery 10.45 for a 10.50am appointment, Doctor running late, as I walked in the waiting room they were about 10 people before me. As I sat waiting to be called in, noted a young couple came in of an Indian origin with a child and a bugaboo-mono-pram, they took a seat leaving the child in the pram, within minutes the child around 2 ½ years old really started to cry and agitated others in the waiting room, to get out the pram. Having taken the child out, utter chaos began, and the child (a girl) went into a rage of stubbornness, crying, screaming, violence, defiance, angry, ranting, resisting every attempt by her parents to bring her under some control, failed, a complete tantrum. By now this family became a spectacle of the child’s uncontrollable bad behaviour, grabbing her Mum and Dad, running away from them, screaming up and down the corridors, leaving the admin staff aghast of the child behaviour, absolutely no control. Words from the admin staff to address the problem, parents in total disregard. By now this was going on for just over an hour, and things got worse, through the corridor this 2½-year-old little girl, attack another little girl being held by her Mum, who was about to visit the nearby children and child care department. As I sat still waiting to be called in by my Doctor. A Welfare Social worker visiting the adjoining child-care clinic heard a child had been attacked by another child. The Welfare officer interviewed the child’s Mum who had the injury. Then the Welfare Social worker came into the Doctors waiting room, questioned the parents of this badly behaved little girl, and cautioned the parents the incident will be reported to the authorities, where further action may be taken against them, the parents, for causing injury’s to another child and causing an affray within the prescient of a public place i.e. the Doctors surgery. Surely, she’s only about 2 ½ years old, how can the parents not have control? Is this bad parenting?

    A 67 (3.71) for today. Lee, while they may not have PODS where you live, there are other companies that offer the same service. Maybe Google this type of service to see what they offer where you live. What they do is to bring a large container to your house, drop it off where ever you tell them to, then you store whatever you want in it, and lock it every night. Once you move, they will come and pick up the container, and either deliver it to your new house, or to a storage warehouse for storage, until you are ready to have it brought to your house. Think of it as being similar to the trailer part of a tractor trailer...the doors to it can be locked with a padlock, and these units come in a variety of sizes to accommodate whatever amount of items you need to have stored. I can imagine how stressful it is to have to move into another house, but having to decide what to keep and what to get rid, makes the move even more stressful. By just placing most of your possessions into a unit like this for now, then deciding later what to keep and what to get rid of, would lessen the stress levels.

    Sudden major drop in BG

    That is my nightmare scenario. Thankfully that didn't happen, cause I would need to drink 250gr of carbs if I popped 25units of Novo. Not sure if it's possible to time those crazy ammounts without going super high or super low.

    7.3 Ahnanimus, there are storage units in the next suburb but you have to take it there. I'm only saving stuff thats at least 50yrs old as I wont be able to replace it easily. We have a bulk waste collection day coming up, so Ive lots of stuff to put out for the collectors & that will free up some tubs. Its a great system where by people drive past & take what they want or can sell. Its like a convoy of sidewalk shoppers. The county advertise the day so collectors are ready. Oh goodie..a sing-a-long... 🎶Talkin' to myself and feelin' old Sometimes I'd like to quit Nothin' ever seems to fit Hangin' around Nothin' to do but frown Rainy days and Mondays always makes me glad (get me down) 🎶

    Sudden major drop in BG

    Not saying this is the reason but it sounds like you accidentally took Novorapid instead of Toujeo. Hope you don't have any further issues. Glad you were able to handle it as well as you did. I can understand the scary part. Glad you are OK.

    One possibility might be that you used the glucose to rebuild glycogen reserves in the liver if those were low or depleted. Personally, I have laso had this happen but I find if I continue the trend, my numbers eventually start to creep upwards.

    Venting...

    Sabrina, I hear ya! Diabetes doesn't care that we have loved ones it doesn't care that we bust our asses to try to fix things and eat right. It doesn't matter we workout or now I am taking this trulicity, right now I have no side effects but one day I am sure this will all change. We all are Guinea pigs The sucky thing is we all react differently to everything nobody is the same. I talk Dark all the time to family, but as fast as this came on to me it's scary! My Doc tells me I will be type 1 soon. That pisses me off! I was 250lbs now I am 170 you would think things should be good, it's not my numbers suck sometimes and I eat Lettuce and veggies and FIsh and Chicken O do try not to eat breads. But I still eat stupid stuff but I exercise too. All we can do is Pray for tomorrow I guess, But if your sugar is low try to eat things to bring it up sometimes its one slice of good bread! Try not to be really good on your eating, try to add things back in, sometimes we have to go with our gut feelings SOme doctors don't know everything. then again who am I?

    129 this morning, blueberries fell off the wagon yesterday @adiantum - "With so many packed crates to move away from where it will be used , & I have to move things so fire exits are kept free." Do you have some service like "PODS" here in US where you get storage unit on a driveway with locks to move your crated stuff as you pack? They can take it warehouse for storage as long as you need and deliver it where you move later.

    Oily Substance

    Been a diabetic for over 15 years. BG is slightly elevated (average 170). My problem (question) is over the last 2 week an oily like substance has developed between my hip and groin. Is just on my right side and it itches bad. Any suggestion as to what to buy at the pharmacy to stop the pain and itching?
