ok that's it...when the crap hits the fan, i'm just going to cash it in...why?...living with the people that will be left is going to be one big cluster F of a life. half of them will be pychopaths, and the other half will be good people with twitchie trigger fingers, scared of their own shadow.

I had something similar just as I started High school ( a while back, LOL)
torn ligaments with bone fragments
no scope back then, just an x ray
they totally immobalized my knee in hip to ankle casts for 6 months
then it took a while to come back after the atrophy
knock wood no trouble since
the GP thought that on a friday afternoon I might be faking an injury to get out of the weekend of fun I suppose
My mother ( a Vet) took the xrays to a real doctor..
who slammed that cast on immediatly before I was seriously crippled by the fragments' movement
which is my best advice which you are already following
GO TO a GOOD DOCTOR!
(and don't move through pain till you know what is causing it
just in case)
and best wishes

I think you pose interesting questions
I have been studying wild herbs for food and medicine for years, and most areas have things growing there that will help as well or better then most pharma products.
It would be foolish to waste anyone who has essential skills.
One thing you don't hear of in most survival discussions is the power of love.
Blood is thicker then water as they say.
I am drawing on older sources myself, living and writtin, the depression, wars, disasters...gulags
There have been times when most things that we anticipate have already happened somewhere. I guess reading those accounts might provide some insite into what to expect.

Surviving one year in a city surrounded by the enemy army and cut off from the rest of the world. I'm Selco and have been through this SHTF school I never wanted to attend during the Balkan wars 1992 - 1995. I write about this here.
I see in many survival forums and communities that people talk about freeze dried blueberry muffins for breakfast, their big generators and what they do to keep life normal in survival scenarios. I think this is just half of preparing and some people miss out on other half.
Get comfortable with change and to live worse.
I and people who went trough the things like I described are unable to see some things, things like real love and happiness. Things like that have been killed with all those kind of atrocities.

I have heard several people say recently (and have seen on the show "doomsday preppers") people say that they injured themselves badly enough during bug out exercises to need a hospital.
Here's my question. When you need a hospital after TSHTF and you hurt yourself two days into your bug out, where are you going to go?
If you're hurting yourself that badly so quickly into your bug out exercise, you definitely have work to do.

There are foods, herbs, and salves that can help with the pain. Orange foods such as yams and squash, help with issues in the joints like arthritis. White willow bark is aspirin, and arnica salve is like using a muscle cream. Make sure you have two good braces if shtf one on and one packed in your bob in case you need to change it or it gets damaged.
