I (like most people) have concerns about our uncertian future. Thats how I found this forum. Those of us who have chosen to do more than ponder have been labled ( for good or bad) preppers. More often than not, when I get into conversations about how to ride out a long term diasaster, the majority of the conversation is about how to keep yourself fed, hydrated, sheltered, a means to protect yourself and a way to treat injuries. I would like to pose a rather important question. How do you prepare for percription medical needs. when the SHTF your not going to be able to have a precription refilled. If you or a loved one is taking a prescribed controlled medication what do you do? Your doctor isn't going to give you extras to stock pile. If that perscription is for a life saving medication this could have dire consequenses if you or your loved one have to go without for an extended period of time.
