This is a random question to ask but it is one that has been running through my head all day. Has anyone else wondered how the folks who have mental health disorders would do in a walking dead type world (or any world similar to that) without their medication or doctors to help them? Yes some may commit suicide for whatever reasons they may have, but for the ones that may actually try to survive and contribute to save those around them, what road would they go down. Would it depend on how dangerous it is for the person to not have their meds to determine how long they will live and if they stay good. I would love to see some kind of show, movie or even read a book about people with mental disorders being the star of a show like the walking dead, or any other post apocalyptic world.

      @Sydari yesss! I would have something to occupy me all the time and I would have a purpose to survive and save others. I’ve literally always thought about it. I’m so ready…. As for the meds I’d probably lose it a little bit but it’s fine cause I’m sure during the apocalypse a lot of people are losing it.

      Personally I feel as if I’d thrive in a situation liek this. My brain is kinda of in the constant fight or flight mode but typically I end up More on the Fight side lol. Any excuse to just go buck wild I’m all for 😂😂

      Oh cool! This sounds like a really fun thought experiment. I'd love to end zombies.

      I think people with disorder could possibly thrive in survival-type environments although it might be a considerable struggle everyday inside and out. People with severe mental illness, I'm not sure.

      I am 59 and female. I also have Multiple Schlorosis. Pain in my legs, mostly from my knees to my feet, every waking hour. I deal with anxiety and depression. Thank goodness there is medication for me to deal with it. I take Effexor. I probably would not want to live without it.
