• With so much uncertainty around at the moment, it’s not at all surprising you might feel confused, worried or overwhelmed. You are not alone! Living with an underlying condition may make you feel even more vulnerable than usual.  This is completely understandable.

    When daily life veers away from normality, it can feel unsettling.  As well as the potential impact on your own health, you may feel just as worried about how this will impact someone you care about. Nevertheless, now more than ever, it is really important to be thoughtful about how you look after yourself emotionally through this unusual period of time too.

    Remember: Self-Care is NOT selfish!
