Dear Dr. Bev,
I have type 2 diabetes. I exercise almost every day. I eat less than I used to and I never skip my oral medication. Every time I check my blood sugar it's over 200mg/dL. My doctor used to threaten me that if I didn't manage my diabetes better, and then I would have to take shots. My doctor says my A1C is too high. Now my doctor tells me that I need to start taking insulin. Even though I've done everything right, I feel like such a failure. I'm afraid of the needles! I'm so upset, please help me.
