i think you really need to be honest about it with your family. its just another illness that you have to deal with. its not a dirty secret any more than your diabetes is. its brave to be facing up to it. like any addiction/disorder the first step is recognizing it the next is wanting to change. the third is do so. so you see your well on your way. i mentioned the family so someone yo trust could insure your putting it into yourself. maybe a different type where you only inject once or twice maybe better.
