I'm glad to hear insulin has had such a positive effect on you! I've had t2 for 10 or 11 yrs and at first I could control it with diet and exercise then that didn't work anymore so along came the pills...I hate taking pills, I wonder what they do to your insides over the years, it can't be good.
I am a needle-phone (terrible thing for a diabetic to be!) and I resisted the idea of insulin for a long time, too long, really. Finally in May I decided I needed to get over myself and learn to do it. I am glad to say it's not as horrible as I thought it would be, I can do it and not feel weak in the knees! My numbers came down beautifully.
I never felt sick or "off" in any way before the insulin, and the docs kept telling me I'd feel better, but I really don't feel any different. I kept waiting for some wonderful feeling to come over me and it hasn't. I guess that's just me! I am glad I started the SoloStar, it works well for me and that's great.
