Karen, my late father-in-law was a type 2 diabetic, and was on insulin after more than a decade on oral meds when I met him. He told me the needles weren’t bad, and was kind enough to demonstrate, a thoughtful gesture that still gives me the heebie-jeebies when I recall it more than a dozen years later. So yes, terror is indeed a wonderful exercise and diet incentive!
