    Well back from the hospital with insulin to take twice a day,just done my first injection and it was not bad at all,the nurses said at first she was going to give one injection a week then ask lots of questions,she then went to see the consultant and come back to say start insulin today.
    I have to call her on Monday with BG readings to see if it’s enough or will need to up the units I am taking
