After watching the movie with Brad Pitt- World War Z, my husband and I seriously talked about how I would survive without a running pharmacy. We stockpile batteries for my pump, but I would be fine off of shots too. I can do math, so thats not a problem. I can live without my pump if i need to. Its the test strips and insulin that won’t be readily available that scares me no end. My husband and I are gun lovers, not too concerned about our supply of firearms and ammo. We have lots of shelf stable food and water. I know this is gross, but if in the event of this type of emergency, you can fill up bath tubs and drink out of the upper part of the toilet.
We are talking no running water available here, ok! Without water we die.
I would raid pharmacies for strips and insulin. I stockpile insulin a little at a time. Probably not enough though.
The other thing I think about is in the event of a zombie apocalypse or the like we probably won’t be eating a lot of food. So may not have to use as much insulin as I do now. That would be a positive aspect.
I didn’t think of sugar or sugar related items, but I would raid the store for that too.
This is really good stuff to think about now and do so that if it does happen we don’t get there and we freak out in our unpreparedness. Panic most of the times leads to poor critical thinking and a quicker death.
