Using insulin is not a huge deal. It is actually more natural than a lot of the pills they put us on. Dwelling on it may just be because you have a fear of it. Maybe a personal fear of needles or a worry of loss of freedom. Don't worry about it. Find ways to channel that worry into productive help and coaching for her as she works on her diet and getting exercise.

My advice is you just got to accept it and be strong for her. If she sees you dwelling on it it will make her feel worse. Just be strong and know everything will be okay. :)
