Defense with the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is an ongoing story set in a world where zombies have taken over and people are fighting to survive anyway they can. Originally it was a post of news and tips to help survivors make it one more day alive, but now it has became a story of my fight after being bitten and partially cured to walk as a half-zombie among them.

It was a boring week this time around and I'm not complaining one bit about it. When you're stuck in the fight or flight mode day in and out it drains you to the point where you just don’t know what's what anymore.

You're so wired all the time that your edge begins to slip slowly and your mind kinda plays tricks on you, putting you in dangerous situations. When you don’t have all your wits about you that's the time errors are made and mistakes happen that can cost you a little or a lot. Not being chased and pursued by bandits or radioactive zombies for a change has led me to have a boring week.

I managed to trek a good amount over the week putting a lot of distance between all those who where tailing me. During the entire week I didn't run into any other beings, living or dead, and I have to say it was peaceful; so peaceful I don’t even remember a time when it was like this. It felt good not have to worry about hiding out or having to kill anything that was looking to end me for once and just walk, rest, sleep, eat all in peace.

I never really get days like these with a zombie possibly lurking around every corner or a survivor mistaking me for one and trying to take me out before I can warn them not to shoot. I've even managed to use this quiet week to heal up even more to the point my leg has just about the same full range of motion it used to have and the wound on my shoulder is no longer looking so rough.

I've passed many small towns that look like survivors were holding out in a few of them, but all were ghost towns when I rolled past them. I did manage to scavenge some supplies and medicines to aid me that have sped up my recovery immensely from the few pharmacies I came across. I found a bit odd that any of them still had any supplies worth taking as most medicine seems to be the one item you can't find anywhere.

These towns must have been hit hard and fast for them to be stocked as they were and those survivors who did make a stand here either stayed very shortly or didn’t make it out at all. I'm going to hang out here for a bit as they actually still have power and I'm able to recharge some batteries and gear while I can.

Keep surviving all you out there as hope is still alive.
