Type 2 diabetes and on insulin? You are not a failure 

“You have to start taking insulin.”

Those 6 words can be some of the most devastating words anyone with Type II diabetes can hear. Immediately, you feel like a failure. What’s wrong with me? I diet, I exercise, I do everything everyone tells me to do … and now I’m on insulin. What. The. Fuck?

But the failure isn’t yours.
