really liked it

I had to go back and take away a star because it's killing me that Faith was given insulin when she is a type 2 diabetic. This is a MAJOR error. Type 2 diabetics still produce their own insulin, their cells however can't use it, so pumping in more insulin wouldn't help. Insulin is givien to type 1 diabetics (of which I am) because in type 1 the pancreas no longer produces enough or any insulin on it's own and so insulin must be injected. A type 2 diabetic may need insulin in addition to a medication, but would not be something given right away. This REALLY bothered me and took me out of the story everytime it was brought up, also a blood sugar of 150 while high, isn't high enough to cause someone to pass out. Other than this whole thing the story was good, and scary!
