Babygirl: You are still T2..... An insulin dependent Type 2 but still Type 2...... I was told by an endocrinologist when I was first put on insulin "Once a Type 2, always a Type 2". (It's like cancer, when you get one type of cancer (say breast cancer) even if it spreads to other parts of the body, it is still known as breast cancer.

I was absolutely terrified of needles growing up and fought going on insulin, but now that I have been on it for almost 15 years, I really wonder what the fuss was all about.

Yes, I certainly know what you mean, lol

I was diagnosed back in 2000 with Type 2 diabetes and I changed my lifestyle and etc and I lost 20 pounds and my blood sugars got better but atleast 3 years ago my Specialist told me that the meds and etc weren't doing the job totally and protein was leaking in my urine which was concerning to my specialist and told me I would have to go on insulin and you know it was the best thing I could do for my health and life. I feel so much better being on insulin. You know what I mean?
So now I am wondering if I was a type 2 diabetic and take insulin now do I call myself or tell people I am a type 2 or type 1 now or type 2 taking insulin :D lol. What do you guys think?
