This shut down is a couple of months of inconvenience. Essential services have continued. We have all learned from this. In a worse situation there would be no essential services, no grocery stores open, no gas stations open. No Feed stores either. We need to ponder on this and we can toss suggestions out for a much worse situation.
This is almost a test run.

I think it's accurate and jives with all the information I've been learning for many years now. As a nurse I've had a front row seat to corruption in the medical field, which depends on the science community for accuracy and truth....but cannot do so. Corruption seeps into all aspects that pertain to our health, from the research, to the pharmaceutical companies, and down to the individual care providers. For instance, everyone with common sense knew they would never "find a cure" for cancer, as it's a multi-billion dollar industry...where it the incentive to "find" a cure?

Flu shots? Won't have one, won't encourage anyone else to have one, will NOT let them give one to my aging parents, who have not had one for over 25 yrs. I used to give flu shot clinics in which I jabbed people all day long, for days on end, back in the day. Now I'm ashamed of having been part of the deception....one lives and learns. Used to participate in cancer walks until I learned the truth about all of that also.

Fear of dying is the single most paramount fear all humans possess, so the real money is in playing on those fears and the science community have done that well and thoroughly for a very long time now. This C19 plandemic is just a culmination of years and years of work to effect a change and a shift of power to even more money and power to certain people. It has absolutely nothing to do with politics, just money/power.

Not a single thing we can do about it and that's not what this is all about....just handy to know the truth and be aware. Be wise as serpents and gentle as doves, my friend.

I lost my post this morning or put it on the wrong thread? IDK, hope I'm not repeating.

I learned that I need to consider pain management in my emergency preparedness. If electric is out I won't have ice and heat packs, or hot baths, which is most of my pain management strategy. I bought a bulk roll of kinesiology tape and a silicone cupping set. The cupping has similar function to heat pad - it draws circulation to the area. I am thinking I need to add a trigger point massage book to my SHTF-no-internet reference book collection.

@tortoise good point!In a pinch I could use a hot water bottle as a heat pad. I prefer the heat bags but I'd use a hot water bottle if it was all I had. I do have a couple. Aloe vera would work for cool relief.

I was looking up herbs to use for pain management and antibiotic types online last night as well. Those would be the two important type to grow for me - pain relief and antibiotic properties. Haven't got any further than the reading stage yet though. I know honey is good for wound management but thats a much bigger investment.
