The doctor put me on insulin today. After taking it I have a slight headache. Could be from the stress today or just from the insulin, right? He also kept me on Metformin. I now take 15cc of insulin twice a day and 1000mg of metformin twice a day. I also take a depression pill before bed. I am upset about having to take the insulin. I have always been told that once I did take insulin that I always would. I so bad wanted to do this on my own, but I just couldn't. Sometime I still think I am in denial. Does that ever stop? When do I really realize that I am a diabetic and I have to do things differently. I guess my question now is what do I do? Do I still follow that diet that I was given? Do I eat before or after taking the insulin? Can I ever get off the insulin?
