Re: Self Care

Sorry to hear that mbbaltic. Yes Self care is vitally important - from a mental health as well as physical health point of view. My asthma is definitely stress induced. I always think I cope well with all the crap that has been thrown my way over the last few years but then when you realise that you...

Re: Public access major bleed kits

As part of my outdoor first aid for my forest school training we did catastrophic bleeds and were shown how to use an Israeli bandage and talked through tourniquets .

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Returning to the prepping board :D to catch up on massive amounts of threads! Over the last few months' absence, I've finished clearing out the garage stash and restocking it, going through the pull out container under the spare bed and using and replacing that too. At the moment I am making a list ...
