I’m diabetic and I’m struggling to juggle my money, food and my health. Any pointers?

If you are already living with a pre-exisiting medical condition like diabetes, it’s completely valid to feel extra anxiety. There are things you can control: stock up on a week’s worth of medical supplies, insulin and food, if you can, so you don’t have to keep visiting the shops.

Get in touch with your local pharmacy and GP to discuss support, and if there are prescription delivery services available. Think about how to access healthy food to manage your diabetes, and how to exercise enough.
