(I moved this up for the newbies to see that we were all newbies once upon a time...)

Well, I officially gave myself my first insulin injection last night and I didn't faint or nuthin'. I'm so proud of me! I was so scared and it was just fine. Whew... now I can get back to just being normaly neurotic instead of totally bonkers! I know I'm silly, but it was scarey for me...

Good for you, Jeannie! It's not easy getting used to taking insulin. Diabetes is not a disease for sissies.

Hugs to ya,

Sandy,
(Blush...!) Thank you. I hope we can all be inspirations to each other. It takes courage for all of us to take out heads out of the sand and face this disease head on. Like Chutzie said, "Diabetes is not a disease for sissies."
