Like the ruling party in some sort of Orwellian dystopian future, here at your soaraway Shoot Up we take a grim satisfaction in watching everything you do on the site.
Well, perhaps not quite, but we have noticed that the number people who read our posts and forums hugely exceed the number of people who comment. While we have a flourishing site and love and cherish our regulars (by “love” we mean “put up with” and by “cherish” we mean “tolerate”) it does seem there are a lot of lurkers out there.
Now, you’re more than welcome to lurk in the shadows if you want. However, we strongly suspect you have interesting experiences, useful input and other good stuff to contribute. So if you’ve teetered on the edge of setting up an account and commenting on an article or starting a thread in the forums but haven’t done so far – now’s your chance! You can create an account or even sign in using Facebook if you want – there are instructions here: https://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/resources/using-the-blog-and-forums/
Don’t worry if you think your diabetes control is rubbish or you haven’t the faintest clue what DAFNE is, or what the hell bolus / basal regimes are. We won’t shout at you or anything silly like that. I screw up my diabetes control all the time – my last BG reading was 12.9 – and I’m completely clueless with regard to most things about diabetes. People in glass houses, etc.
So if you fancy taking the plunge, then why not leave a comment below and say hello! I promise* to be nice.
