Survival stories

From a Sarajevo War Survivor:


I think i've shared this before but it belongs in this thread anyway:

Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war – death of parents and friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks…

Stockpiling helps, but you never no how long trouble will last, so locate near renewable food sources.
Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.
After awhile, even gold can lose its luster. But there is no luxury in war quite like toilet paper. Its surplus value is greater than gold’s.
If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity – it’s the easiest to do without (most when you’re in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)
Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without heating.
Bring some books – escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more valuable as the war continues. Sure, it’s great to have a lot of survival guides, but you’ll figure most of that out on your own anyway –trust me, you will have a lot of time on your hands.
The feeling that you’re human can fade pretty fast. I can’t tell you how many people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne. Not much point in fighting if you have to lose your humanity. These things are morale –builders like nothing else.
Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches.

Corn husks can substitute--not perfect, but better than nothing.

... And dried mullein leaves

Of course it's moral about luxury and morale than it is about hygiene...
