Emergency Health Mini Preppers




It can be devastating if you lose your health or are injured.  It is very difficult if you have children. 


Some families are lucky.  They are surrounded by family.  There is someone to "step in" and help them.  Other families are more isolated.  Not everyone has someone they can turn to for help during difficult times due to illness.  Sometimes there are people you can turn to, but you just don't want to ask.


Quite a few years ago I was very ill for around 3 months.  My husband was gone for a year doing homeowner claims after Hurricane Andrew.  I couldn't make it to the store.  My children were old enough to cook, and there was plenty of food in our food storage.  Between the four of us, we survived.


There were others I could have turned to for help, but my family has always been as self-sufficient as possible.  People as so busy these days with their jobs and families, it is hard to ask for anything.


Ironically, we had a grocery store near our home.  However, by the time I could finally make it to the store, all the store clerks were striking.  I had no choice.  I had to cross the picket line, and I felt awful about it.  Aside from the bad experience with the strike, we did okay during a very difficult time.  The food in our home served us well. 


This is not an emergency that everyone will face, but it is still another reason why having adequate food and other items in your home is good emergency preparation.


Loss of health can also mean loss of income.  If you store what you eat, and eat what you store, having food and the other necessities of life already purchased can make it easier to go through difficult times.


No one knows what the future is going to bring.  Loss of health can be temporary or permanent.  It can come by illness or accident.


If you are a mini prepper, you will find these challenges easier to handle.
