Hi family! I had to share with you all how great I'm feeling! Since I started using the insulin my fatigue is gone! I was feeling so badly before!I was Tired ALL the time and I had just a all around feeling of being sick before! I had no energy at all! Now I haven't felt this good in years! I have plenty of energy , I don't feel ill any more in fact I feel more healthy than I've felt in years! I am truly amazed on how great I feel taking insulin! I just keep feeling better and better! This was definitely what I needed! I only take my shot about twice a day as needed on my sliding scale and gosh! I feel like a new person! I had been sick for sooo long at least two years before I was diagnosed so I'm so excited now I had to share with everyone! It just keeps getting better and better! Physically, and emotionally! I am so greatful that my doctor put me on insulin! I can't stress enough the difference insulin has made in my life! I look back now on how afraid I was and all that fear was for nothing! I just wanted to check in with everyone and let everyone know what is going on with me. I still take my pill along with the insulin. Things are good! Thank you all for listening to me and being my diabetic family! Your all great!

Thank you for sharing. I am close to being put on insulin and it scares me. I am afraid of the shots. You make me feel better - although I am going to TRY to get the sugars down without it, if I can.

I have been using insulin for 65 years and it has kept me alive and healthy. Thank God for Dr. Bating. He discovered insulin in 1921. Congratulations on your success!

This is such a great testimony on how insulin can help. It allows your body to work more properly and that is why you feel so much better. More people like you need to share your story so that diabetics don't fear insulin so much.

I wish people knew the truth about insulin! I don't know why its got such a negative stigma! I was pleasantly surprised as to how great it made me feel and how easy and painless it actually is !!

Thanks denny. I was totally shocked on how great insulin made me feel! All I ever heard was horror stories I have no idea why there are so many negative insulin Stories going around when that couldn't be farther from the truth! Insulins great! Its amazing how much better it can make a person feel!

Good for you! sorry I didn't read all your prior posts, what medication were you on before, and what was your blood sugar like?

Hi jason, I was on januvia only and my blood sugar was anywhere from 200- 400! It just wasn't doing the trick! I was so high I'd get ill and "fall asleep" that's what I would call it the high sugar would make me feel as if I were drunk when I was extremely high and I lived like that for a long time before I got my diagnoses like two years! Then I was still doing that with the pill alone. But now with insulin I don't do that anymore! I have energy and my lives coming back to me!its really been amazing for me! I'm feeling great now! Also I'm able to keep my blood sugar in the range it should be with the help of the insulin! That's so important! I just stayed high ALL the time before insulin and that's not good! I have got so much more control over my numbers now being on a sliding scale! Its great!

I had high sugar and felt like drunk once, wasn't a good feeling, even though it only lasted half an hour…can't believe how long you endured that…but you are young like me, you got the right help already, you get yourself into a healthy habit and the best is yet to come! good luck!
