I don't know if anyone here caught the show Doomsday Preppers on the NatGeo channel that aired last season, but that's what inspired this question. The premise of the show is people that stockpile all kinds of supplies, anything and everything they might need to survive what they think will bring about world-wide doomsday. Some of them go to amazing lengths to prep for what they believe will be the end.
Now, I am by no means a "Prepper", but it got me thinking; How long would I make it in a disaster scenario with type 1 diabetes (or type 2 if that's you)? I'm not necessarily meaning a world-wide doomsday event, but something like the floods that recently paralyzed Manila, or Katrina that shutdown a whole city, Wildfires in Colorado. Doesn't particularly matter what it is, but something that would cut off supply of insulin and other items we depend on to keep ourselves in control for an extended period of time. How do you think you would do/survive? How much insulin et al do you keep on hand?
Granted, at least where I live, this is not a huge concern. More like a passing thought, but one that makes me go "Hmmmm". Be interested to see if anyone has a disaster/doomsday plan here!
