Skip to comments.Some Prepper/Survival Videos from The Patriot Nurse

FYI: I came across these videos this morning made by The Patriot Nurse. I'm not sure if they've been posted to FR before, but I did look through the archives as best I could. I've watched a couple of them. There are a few on You Tube made by this woman. Just passing along for those interested. I think she gives some good ideas. See links below for some of her videos--they'll link you to her other videos as well.
Marked for later viewing. Thanks beaversmom!
For later. Thanks.
Thank yew young lady....stay safe !
OK, I’ve watched the first one. This nurse rocks, good stuff.

Her video on who will die first when TSHTF is spot on. As a nurse myself, I cannot tell you how many weak, sick, some malnourished, and some grossly overweight, drugged out, psyched out, dependent, crazed crackpot people there are out there — and I cannot IMAGINE how it would be if they couldn’t get their drugs, their insulin, their “fixes” of various kinds.
Of course, many are our elderly and it is to be expected, but MANY are not all that elderly and have just have horrid states of mental, physical, and psychological health.
It is my feeling, and only a hunch, but from what I see everyday in the hospital, at least 1/2 to 2/3 of Americans are in a very fragile and dependent state at all times. It really bears on me at times.
Our nation needs to get back to HEALTH most of all and to indepedence from constant medical care. I feel it is related to the “dependency” culture. Just my opinion. Also a LOT of older folks who just drank, smoked, and ate themselves to oblivion ...to a point of total fragility.
self-ping for later
Thanks for the info

Antiboitics was a great video.
Medkit videos are great, but she needs to have a dedicated ORT kit and explain why it will be THE primary killer of civilization post-SHTF.
It was a few years ago, and not on FR that I read an article stating that without chronic medication and life saving remedial (ala triple bypass) surgeries, that the life expectancy in the U.S. has actually gone down (IIRC mid 50’s) over the last 100 years.
I think you may have overestimated the number of drug/fix dependent people in the U.S. but maybe not for your area. Then again, you may be right. I know in this rural area, most are drug free and not overweight (though there are many elderly), but I need only take a 90 minute trip to an urban area to see people who are both of those things. I do fully believe that 20% of people would easily fall into the dependent class, needing drugs of some sort (illegal or prescription) to function. It was mentioned in “One Second After” that about 1 in 20 people could not function in society without being heavily medicated, and I suspect that 1 in 5 people who are under the true life expectancy (of about 55-60 years) could no longer cope with the reality that surrounds us without some form of drug. I think the rate of 50+ is much higher in terms of prescription drug use (Over 50% IIRC).
So I suppose when all is said and done, your assessment may be on track, but I sure hope it isn’t. I’d like to think there is hope for America, even after TSHTF.
I have been subscribed to her for ages now.. she has great info and it has helped in my medical preps greatly.
Where I am located drugs are big, big problem (Meth)along w/ drug labs, crime associated with drug culture. I am in a rural county in NW AR. The people are either grossly over weight or drugged out bags of bones, smoke, drink, on Medicaid and live off the taxpayer. They will not change and they vote Democrat if they vote at all. Most spend time in HUD apt. watching “Twilight” videos, reproducing, fighting, feeding themselves with food stamps. And believe they are entitled to this. They poison their bodies, get diabetes, Cardiovascular diseases, require extensive medical care that is often result of their life style choices. I see them toting oxygen tanks w/ pack of cigs in the pocket. We pay for it. I am not very optimistic. I keep getting flashes from the 70s movies “Soylent Green”.
I wonder why she feels the need to cuss in her videos.
