Ahhh...horrid having a fear of needles when you have diabetes...it was MY case long ago....and a very nice phlebotomist walked me through it.....emphasizing "Just look at me and nothing else"...IDK why....but it worked. Prior to that, I had to request to stretch out anytime I went for blood work.

Hello thank you for welcoming me to the group. I am 25 years old I got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2011. I have been in denial not taking care of myself and I decided I need to make changes I want to live a healthy long life. I am just having a hard time with checking my blood glucose because I have a needle phobia:(
