Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Please consider putting away a 3 month supply of food and water in case of an emergency. Conside putting away some for others too. Buy nutritious food that will keep such as canned tuna. Use and replace this food as time passes.June 13, 2006 at 2:09 am #6494
Are you aware of something that’s about to happen?June 13, 2006 at 2:44 am #6495AnonymousInactive

Yes, I believe so. But even if I told you I don’t think most of you would believe it could happen. But let’s say I’m wrong. Buying extra of what you would buy anyway would not hurt. For example, I bought a lot of tuna fish that is good until the fall of 09. I don’t think that tuna fish will be any cheaper then. Just rotate your stock with new as you use it.
If you believed that something serious was going to happen, wouldn’t you do what I’m trying to do too? I think so.
I don’t want to frighten anyone. I just want you all to know I care about you too.June 13, 2006 at 4:16 am #6497
Ummm…ok. You’re acting kind of strange without much explanation. Perhaps you could elaborate.
Fortunately I have plenty of canned tuna on hand since I eat it for breakfast 3 times a week! ” title=”Very Happy” />June 13, 2006 at 4:31 am #6498AnonymousInactive

I understand, but if I explained we would debate if it is going to happen or not and not focus on the [b:1nceo1va]food and water[/b:1nceo1va]. You can come up with a reason(s) to put some extra food away and that would be good enough for me. If you get sick of tuna you can always give it to the food pantry. ” title=”Smile” />June 13, 2006 at 4:34 am #6499
Well, say something. It would provide some good conversation at the very least.
Why would I stock up on food and water if I didn’t have a reason? You haven’t really given a reason. A terrorist attack? An asteroid? The Second Coming? What do you think is going to happen?June 13, 2006 at 4:49 am #6500AnonymousInactive
Mormons stock food and water for an unspecified reason.
Are you Mormon now, Ardent?June 13, 2006 at 4:52 am #6501AnonymousInactive

There is a reason but no one has told me what it is yet.June 13, 2006 at 1:15 pm #6503AnonymousInactive

No, but you seem to know a lot about them. Are you Mormon now Benedict? Cheap shot. ” title=”Sad” />June 13, 2006 at 1:38 pm #6504AnonymousInactive

Look, I’m sorry if this thread is not to some of your liking. I’m not twisting anyone’s arm about this. As always, do as you see fit. I’m just making the suggestion that it is prudent to put away some food and water in case your local food stores are closed for awhile. If doing so seems unreasonable then don’t. Does that sound fair?June 13, 2006 at 1:53 pm #6506

So, really, what’s supposed to happen? Inquiring minds want to know. ” title=”Smile” />June 13, 2006 at 3:41 pm #6507AnonymousInactive

[color=darkblue:208etq8d]It didn’t bother me my dear Ardent L. You’ve just been around long enough to have us ponder over what’s on your mind. How would you react if I, Jon, or Benedict said something like this? Wouldn’t you be at least curious?[/color:208etq8d]June 13, 2006 at 4:00 pm #6510AnonymousInactive

You don’t think so? Then it must be common practice for a moderator to question a fellow catholic’s faith over something like this here. I found it totally out of line.June 13, 2006 at 6:10 pm #6512
I apologize. I thought he was making a lighthearted joke, but apparently not. ” title=”Sad” />
Sorry to seem to be questioning your faith. It wasn’t apparent to me that this had anything to do with faith.June 13, 2006 at 6:51 pm #6513AnonymousInactive
Thanks Jon, sorry but he hit a nerve with that one. ” title=”Smile” />June 13, 2006 at 7:03 pm #6514AnonymousInactive
Back on topic, my reasons for putting away a supply of food and water are many. No one reason outweighs the rest. But put them all together and it’s a real concern to me. Even the health department encourages people to get ready incase of a bird flue pandemic. But I have real concerns about the economy and civil strife. Terriorism, remains a concern and in parts of the country, earthquakes (we had some here in Ohio) and storms concern me too. If nothing else some people may lose their jobs in the near future and having some extra food would not hurt.
I know this sounds like doom and gloom on a nice spring day, but I sleep just a little better knowing that I’m doing what I can and PRAYING for the help of God.
I really don’t want to debate the above. It is not that I’m afraid to do so. It is more like if I fail to convince someone and nothing bad happens then they win. If I fail to convince someone and something bad happens no one wins.June 14, 2006 at 8:26 pm #6515AnonymousInactive
Put yourself in the following situation: you’re speeding along a highway when suddenly a deer crosses in front of you. You pull the steering wheel hard trying to avoid the animal. The car swerves and spins off into the emergency lane, and you skid to a stop. Somehow you’ve managed to avoid a potentially fatal accident for both you and the deer.
You’re shaking, your heart is racing, and you’ve broken out into a quick and cold sweat. But you’re alive! This would be the normal reaction for most people in a similar situation.
Now imagine this: you’re at a restaurant having a quiet dinner when suddenly, for no apparent reason, you experience the same uneasy feelings. You begin shaking, your heart starts racing, and you break out into a cold sweat. You even feel like you might be having a heart attack. You’re rushed to the hospital, and the doctors can find nothing immediately wrong with you.
What These Symptons Mean
Quite possibly you may have experienced a “panic attack” and a few of the typical symptoms usually associated with panic disorder.
Panic disorder is characterized by
unexpected and repeated episodes of intense fear
These episodes are accompanied by physical symptoms that may include:
shortness of breath
nausea, or abdominal distress. *
A panic attack seems to come out of nowhere at times and in places where there is nothing to fear. When experiencing the effects of the attack, you may think you’re having a heart attack, dying, or even going crazy. But in reality, there is nothing wrong with your heart or your sanity. You’re simply one of the millions who suffer from this frightening and debilitating disorder.
What Is Agoraphobia?
Some panic disorder sufferers also have “agoraphobia.”
Agoraphobia is an anxiety or a fear of being in places or situations from which escape might be difficult (or embarrassing) or in which help may not be available in the event of having a panic attack or panic-like symptoms (for example, fear of having a sudden attack of dizziness or a sudden attack of diarrhea). Some people with agoraphobia may fear being outside the home alone; being in a crowd or standing in a line; being on a bridge; or traveling in a bus, train, or car.
Situations like these may be avoided, or else they’re dreaded and then endured. Typically, this means staying away from places or circumstances where previous experiences have happened. Obviously, having such a “fear of the fear” can make normal everyday life impossible.
*These symptoms can be signs of another underlying condition; make sure to follow-up with your physician and get regular check ups.
