Is there something I can do about my fear of having low blood sugar? I haven’t been taking my insulin because of this concern.

You must have had a bad experience with low blood glucose. Not taking your medication is not a good option. Re-visit with your doctor and health care team to regain your confidence in managing diabetes. Following your meal plan, taking medication and exercise all work together for good blood glucose control. More frequent blood glucose monitoring can also help to make you feel more in control.
