Preparedness for Diabetics

I am 70 years old and a type 2 diabetic. With the health care and
insurance regulations I can only stockpile a maximum of 90 days of
medications. If I plan on cutting all my medications in half that
leaves me at most 180 days of survival. With no other family to plan
for why should I try to stockpile other supplies for longer survival?
Hello Jim, sorry to hear that.
There are a few things you can do though. Fist, I found this link to be worth the read, written bit a diabetic prepprer.
Try to stay as healthy as possible, eating well and exercising. Eating more of a plant based diet, avoiding junk food and sticking to quality sources of protein, no smoking and no drinking, that and doing cardiovascular workout at least for 45 minutes, 3 times a week (go for an hour if you can) will greatly improve your overall health and immune system. I know you already know all of this but man, I have to remind it to myself as well!
I’m no athlete and the idea of going to the gym alone bores me to death. So I just got one of these:

Schwinn Compact Elliptical Machine
Any mid-price elliptic a trainer allows you to climb on it and work on your cardio without leaving your house. Don’t get the cheapest model, get something solid with a reasonable flywheel weight, say 12kg.
What I do is find some TV series to get hooked on and watch it while I work out. Try Vikings on Amazon prime if you haven’t seen it already.
Other than that, the precautions we’ve gone through here as well. Wear a quality mask (not some political statement cloth mask, but a real mask) use gloves for shopping or use hand sanitizer after touching things in stores.
You may try asking your doctor for additional medicine given the situation.
As of why bother with anything else given your medication limit, well, it would suck to somehow come across more medication and be lacking a number of others things you could have prepared for.
Best of luck!

ISIS and BLM sure act very similar...

Look! More thugs and terroris- I mean "protesters"... destroying our cultural legacy... I mean "expressing" themselves.
Hmmm... I swear I've seen this somewhere else rather recently...

Shattered treasures include winged bulls that guarded entrance to ancient Nineveh.

Yup, walks like a duck and quacks like a duct, then it must be a duck.
Get Ready people! These are the warnings you should notice.

Riots in America: Secret Service agents wounded outside White House, Trump was taken to bunker

America is changing.
The racial tension was already there and has been getting worse these last few years.
Coronavirus added even more fuel, and the full economic impact of coronavirus plus the current civil unrest is still around the corner. You've had more than enough time to prepare, prepare for real. Prepare for THIS sort of thing. I hope everyone did.
The Skills you need so as to be ready for this "New normal" are precisely what I explain in "Street Survival Skills" https://amzn.to/2KxdbHe and "The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse" https://amzn.to/2lX5Tl
