i was out mountain biking and stopped at a friends house i usually stop at because it's my 5 mile marker so i know to turn around at that point and
while drinking some lemonade on the front porch i decided to peep ATS and while i don't have asthma and don't even know anyone who does i saw the
thread title and thought it was an awesome idea and valuable information to have for the "just in case" scenario and wow i read the survivalists
posts and thought i had to put my 2 cents in immediately haha i mean geezz
i really got bent but anyway.. my 2 cents.. in a worst case scenario i totally get the thinking and understand it but it's an "looks good on paper"
kinda thing, meaning.. this is a suggested method to make your own survival chances greater but common think about it if you have so little, or
actually no, compassion for others what's the use? i surly wouldn't want to live in the new world where everyone is only interested in their own
mortality, who the F would? a bunch of self righteous narcissists.. what kind of community would that be and who'd want to be part of it? haha
anyway.. OP i'd definitely do all in my power to save your life even if i was down to my very last cheeseburger and cherry lemonade, hands off the
last twinkie tho
to exist only for the sake of existing wouldn't be much of an existence really.. would it? all alone in your bunker.. take a sec to put yourself into
the injured shoes and think about it.. maybe you have some sort of valuable skill that could help the community but you have an illness that would
drag your group down so they cut you loose and there you are begging and pleading for your life.. "you can't leave me behind I CAN GROW BRUSSEL
SPROUTS!!". haha OH and your remark about your family and you wouldn't have any qualms cutting any of them loose either haha wow just be careful
partner karma is a very real thing so good luck for when that shtf day finally does come.
to each their own i guess. you're certainly entitled to whatever way of life works for you. ok, got it off my chest i feel better. Thanks ATS
sometimes just typing a response helps when you just need to vent.
i to have heard caffeine will help in a pinch and would also like to add that i have severe gout, in men it's usually something that occurs in your
big toe for some reason but for me it's in every joint in my body so i take medication for it for the rest of my life i've even had surgery for it
as well and if you have it or know anyone who does you'll know the pain of a gout attack is beyond description so if anyone else suffers with the
same.. i know 2 home remedies i have tried that i can attest to and actually use.. 1) is, again, caffeine. haha maybe an unnoticed wonder drug? i
don't know but it definitely helps quite a bit and 2) "bing" black cherry juice both work wonderfully but the bing black cherry juice is the better
of the 2 for me. i've only ever heard "juice" so i'm not sure if just eating the actual cheery alone would have the same results. this works well
with arthritis or any joint inflammation as well.
i hope this information helps a little for anyone interested.
