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

“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.

Save your eyes, save your feet, save your heart, save your life!

Today is World Health Day and the World Health Organization is focusing this year on the growing epidemic of Type 2 diabetes. What does this mean for you and how can you prevent it!
