    Picked up my repeat prescription the other day comprising of 4 vials of Fiasp insulin and test strips. As the chemist handed them over she says "do you pay for your prescriptions?" My response was no.... I wish I did" chemist says "so you'd rather pay for them" I said "yes... If I did I wouldn't have T1 diabetes!" She looked rather puzzled to my response?!?. Is it me just being daft???!!!!:banghead:

    How the other half live? I wish I too didn't need any meds. For back, thyroid nor metabolic syndrome.
    I'd love not to be getting a shopping bag worth of med a month to keep me alive.

    I stocked up on everything before my foot op as it’ll be tricky to get to my pharmacy. I looked like I’d done a food shop! :joyful:

    My pharmacy delivery man said he's come to deliver a Chinese takeaway. It is scary. o_O

    I don't know anyone who pays for insulin in the UK but there must be someone. Insulin isn't a choice, from what I know. A lifesaver.
