    Well, this isn’t nice to have to say but in a long-term SHTF situation, most people with serious disabilities like drug dependence (legal or otherwise), insulin-dependent diabetes, severe autism, obesity, even plain old age won’t survive for very long unless they’re very well prepared. If you HAVE to choose between your wheelchair-bound mother or your young children, which would you pick? Maybe it’s sad to say but I value my dogs over most of the people I know! Hey, I love my dogs, but if I had to choose between them!!! GLAHP!

    I think this is a good article for pointing out how we can take care of people with disabilities during an SHTF situation. In reality, if we don’t prep for them and don’t teach them how to prepare themselves for that situation there’s no chance that they can’t survive. Good preparation and support will be a big help for them.
