Hi everyone, just wondered if any of you happen to be in a similar situation or have any advice. I’m a well controlled type 1, been diabetic since age 13 and I’m now 36. I’m also a self employed tattooist, with a studio on a high street. Obviously this means I can’t work from home during the Covid19 pandemic! I’ve been carefully social distancing, and today I received my 80% funding from the government, which is amazing and I should just about survive on that, but obviously there will come a time when I’ll have no choice but to go back to work. So far all of the advice I’ve found is for people in the vulnerable group who are in employment, to talk to their employers about safe working practices etc. but not a lot for the self employed. I suppose it’s both a blessing and a curse that I can choose when I feel it’s safe for me to return to work, which is difficult as I can not work at a safe distance from others, so it scares me, but also I know there are type 1’s who have no choice but to work in dangerous situations such as frontline nursing. I wondered if anyone else is in the same scenario, and what your thoughts are? I want to prioritise my health but I also don’t want to feel like I’m “Playing the diabetes card” while other type 1’s are working away. Any thoughts?
