    After weeks of high sugars started insulin today. Was scared to death but it was so easy and painless lets hope we get on the straight and narrow.

    Good luck to you :) I'm type 1. And on insulin, 4 injections a day. Can be hard at times, but I mostly try and carry on as usual :)

    Goodnfor you. When I was diagnosed nurses gave me injections for first few days until I 'got used to' having diabetes (!?). It always hurt and I dreaded the thought of doing it to myself but from very first time it was painless and easy. I'm so glad you habe found it to be the same. Best of luck from here on hope its smooth sailing
