As a mother who has several daughters in your age range, let me go motherly on you. First of all, don't tell me that you don't have an extra few dollars a week to buy a box of crackers, a jar of peanut butter, or a can or two of food. It does build up over time.
Secondly, you ARE able to store water. Each time you use up a plastic jug of milk, juice, or whatever, you can clean it out and put in water that you can store, rather than just throwing the container out. That also builds up over time.
Thirdly, you are putting you and your partner out there as "gorgeous" in order to get somebody to take you into their shelter. Who do you think is going to take you in? Families, or a group of single men who plan on making you pay for your food and water?
Think smart and do what you can to have at least a little bit of extra food and water. If the S never hits the F, at least you have some extra goodies. My daughters aren't saving one bit, they plan on running here to us because they know I have been prepping for a year now. If you don't have any preppers in your family, you'd best get to doing what you can do now, and don't plan on anybody saving you at the last minute.
Motherly tirade over. Thank you.

My main REAL concern is my seizure disorder and lack of medication. Any tips?
Point being, I don't have the money to build a bug out bag, or stock up on food and water. My cupboards are practically bare right now. All I have in the fridge is fruit and veggies. ..and other perishable foods.
Forgive the obvious question, but this cannot be stockpiled? What would you do, for instance, if you were to go on an extended vacation?
Like the guy bugging out in his 2005 jeep after an EMP..... ok, news flash, your jeeps not going to start. lol
