Howdy Noahark! WELCOME to Diabeticconnect
I used to use insulin, and I had no problem giving myself the insulin injection.
I didn't like insulin because it made me fatter.

After a mishap where I dropped the insulin vial and it shattered on the floor,
I had to wait to get another vial. While waiting I discovered that if I ate very low carb my Blood Glucose (BG) didn't rise all that much. That started me thinking, and eventually I came to experement with an eating plan so I didn't have to take ANY diabetes meds at all. On that plan I kept my BG close to the normal range, had an A1c of 5.5, and as an added bonus, I lost about 50 lbs from Feb 2011 till now.

I would be willing to share that plan should you request it.
Blessings to you and yours!,
