Do any of you, who are dealing with your own or your child's chronic illness or special need, ever worry about if certain medical technologies were made unavailable? Whenever I read about people saying if a bomb was dropped, or what have you, getting on their bikes and heading out to the country (for example), I always think, "that couldn't be me". I need electricity for my medication. And I need the medication to stay alive. What do people do in situation like war/natural disasters/RV living if they DEPEND on technology to keep them or their child alive?<br><br>
I am interested to hear your thoughts...<br><br>
I was started reading a book "Dies the Fire" I saw recommended here a while ago and it got me thinking (I didn't finish it, because the writing was awful. But I did enjoy "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy) and no amount of planning would save me, making me unavailable to help my husband save my children.

well, I'm hoping people will continue to discuss this here. I agree about a quick death being ideal. I just worry that it wouldn't be. Or what if the shortage or whatever were only temporary? But too long for a gas powered generator. I guess I am wondering what people did in Katrina for instance? Or places where war is ongoing?
