Add onto that scenario the amount of people who will die from not having access to medicines that they rely on to keep them alive.......
I have seen news articles popping up the past year that a lot of medicines that people need are no longer being manufactured by big pharm and there are shortages already happening for these drugs. I cannot fathom this happening by no other design other than it is being done on purpose...

I've always loved your posts and I'm sure you've heard this before, but... please dear god be careful with Xanax and Ambien, many people have experienced some truly terrible consequences as a result of those substances. I'm sure you aren't dizzy enough to mix those with alcohol but I am frightened by the combination nonetheless!

Xanax and ambien? Your doctor's a nut. None of my business, but I at least hope you are on a small dose of xanax like .5 a day.

I wasn't really sure where on ATS to post this so it goes into general. On another forum a member expressed dismay that so many of his colleagues where now on legal drugs of all sorts and most of them were for emotional and mental support and control. That has made me reflect on this situation.
More and more people are depending on legal drugs to cope with life's issues, some are of their own doing, some are thrust upon them through no fault of there own. However the dependency on legal drug use is skyrocketing. For example I have relative that works at a large company that has health benefits.They track the percentage of expenses used and where they are going. 10 years ago only 10% went to legal mental and emotional support drugs, now 80% goes towards it, remember this is 80% of ALL health claims. It rose a staggering 70% in just 10 years.
Now here is my concern if a terrible major calamity strikes of any type, and these people can't get there meds refilled, where does that leave them and the people around them. If they couldn't cope when things were basically "normal" how will they react when things are very ugly and they have no meds.
If you have 75% of the population suddenly coming off all there meds at the same time the result for society won't be good.
Let's hope they don't all own guns either. Because massive suicides and raging are a real possibility.
So if the TBTB cause a SHTF scenario and it's worldwide, and within lets say 3 months all the prescription meds have run out, and everybody is coming off at the same time.
Am I the only one that see's a major problem developing with this level of dependency ?
I would say if you are survivalist wean yourself off all mental an emotional support drugs.
Personally I refuse to take them, even though a councillor once recommended them to me after I had a death in the family.
Another doctor told a friend of mine that was majorly depressed, I could give you a subscription to help you, but first I want to ask you, can you work this out without medical assistance of drugs, thinking about it he realized he would be using these meds as a fake way to cope with reality. He declined and got better.
This is something to think about.edit on 12-12-2012 by Blue_Jay33 because: (no reason given)
