Arthritis

Recommended Posts

My cat of 7yrs has developed crippling athritis in her hips. So i literally have to care for her like a baby to get her mobile again.

This got me to thinking about 'thePatriotnurse' and her videos about the muliple waves of death post-shtf.

 

Just thought id add to the list, people with arthritis as bad as my cat. immobile... hips hurt too much to move.

Yep, I have come to the realization that arthritis will probably screw me in a SHTF situation but I am not letting that

stop me from doing the best I can.

I probably wont be able to carry my backpack far, due to arthritis in my knees and both my hands have arthritis which might make it difficult to do the knots I am trying to learn or any of the many things I need to be fully capable of. (slingshots another tough one)

I don't care though. Not going to give it power over me. I am going to pick that damn bugout bag up and get it on my back, put one foot ahead of the other until I black out if necessary. Have been practicing in my bedroom just picking it up and getting it on my back. Its the first step of many

I like the way your thinking Sherrie, one step at a time. Don't let anything stop you.

Well I am in perfect shape for a crippled old cowboy if it were not for vicodin I wold not sleep at all

 

my only advice is to make sure you have enough like a 6 month supply and use it sparingly some of the supplements

 

are helping some folks have a brace even if you don't need it now you may later I find a lot of that stuff in resale shops and garage

 

sales hammer toe heel spurs carpel tunnel bad joints many of these braces are helpful and cheap 2nd hand

 

I use a lot of bengay so try everything and if it helps keep it if not next of your garage sales sell it.

Juzcallmesnake, alot of good advice there. I think I will go ahead and look for 2nd hand knee brace and two hand and arm splints. Am supposed to be wearing the hand and wrist splints every night I sleep but it keeps me in a mental injured mode when I use stuff like that. However, I can see the day where it will be a non choice item. The knee brace I used to own and gave away as I hated it. BUT same deal there will be a day of non choice. Will try to keep costs down and purchase one 2nd hand. If not for me might be for someone else.

Thanks for the support NavyVet_77 I think there are alot of like minded folk here.

I do have tunnel vision when I set my mind to things. Always feel I can endure almost any amount of pain if its for a good cause. As long as I can say I have done my best then when I close my eyes the final time I will rest in peace

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
