Hi, I found this site tonight while waiting in the emergency room scared because my sugar levels were very high for what is normal for me. They were at an all time high of 22. I was given insulin for the first time ever as I have been using pills and diet/exercise as my way to manage this disease. I was diagnosed as a diabetic during pregnancy and haven't been able to reverse diabeties as I was told could happen by my doctor when first diagnosed 16 yrs ago. I have been terrified of going on insulin but clearly after landing in emerg tonight that could be a possibility. I feel like I'm alone in battling this disease as my husband , family and friends don't seem to understand how this disease can make you feel at times. Any way I thought joining this site and getting some support couldn't hurt. I look forward to meeting new ppl and getting any advice you have to offer.
