I'm a diabetic, too, Kingchip, but I'm not overweight, it's an inherited condition - my father and his mother both were diabetics. Lucky me. So I am aware that in a true SHTF scenario I probably won't make it for long, but I've lived enough of my life that I guess I have learned to be okay with that. Not everyone will survive and I accept that. My only reason to try is because I have kids and grandkids that I'd like to live long enough to see survive and, of course, there is always the hope that the world will make a turn around and be a better place in the long run.
