Ginnetteb made a comment on another discussion that reminded me of a topic I wanted to bring up with the whole community.

As the parent of a type 1 son, I'm unfamiliar with the "fear" of insulin. But as I've gotten to know more type 2's, it seems there is a common belief that going on insulin is a terrible thing.
From my perspective, insulin is a great tool in the diabetes treatment arsenal. And it seems that if other medications have not produced good blood sugar control, insulin injections (while not as convenient or easy) can provide excellent control for all people with diabetes.
Maybe you all can help me understand your perspective on insulin.
