    Re: Loss in Post Collapse America

Sager,

I’m in the same boat.  My everyday life does seem to have a more dream-like quality to it, much of it probably due to recent changes in my life but at least part of it has to do with the changes of mood I feel in others around me.  The most recent surreal moment was several days ago when my company announced job cuts including a reduction in my team, and after a one-on-one visit by management I found out that my job is safe… but really only because one of my coworkers recently retired.  If he had decided to stay instead…. well, being the new guy I would have been out of luck.  And this is a group that only 5 months ago was considered ‘un-cuttable’.  They say now that there definitely is no way any more positions could be cut and we’re all safe for awhile, but I sense it won’t be long before more change and ‘surprises’ come about at the workplace.

I feel like I’m skiing down a completely unfamiliar slope, going faster than I normally would in order to keep up with the guy in front of me.  Whoa!.. dodged that tree.  Woo!… just cleared that rock.  That familiar old friend and nemesis of mine, chaos, is here to visit again.  The difference now is that he’s no longer content to merely couch-surf at my place for a while… now he’s decided to rent a room and move in Laughing

    Re:Skiing down a fast slope without brakes?

Hello all,

I missed the threads for the last two weeks–we accepted an offer on our house and had ten days to close and get out. It’s been a real mixed bag of wowow and fast moves. I faced a lot of the emotional blitz of the forced down-sizing and found myself wondering “How do you prepare for the “end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it” and get rid of a lot of stuff???

So–yes Sager!  I have been feeling a lot of the internal screaming you described so well.  Yet once we decided that the opportunity cost of staying in the house far outweighed the flexibility to get out of dodge if we needed to, the universe has been saying YES. We made it. A lot of work left to do–but the internal screaming has slowed greatly–I can still feel the invisible pressure of events building but think we personally made the move we needed to to get on.

Maybe your internal screaming is the culimination of subtle clues you’ve unconsciously added up and you are in fact ready to move on to that community you’ve shared with us??

Best of luck to you with the screaming heemy jeebies. Like poison ivy you can’t reach to scratch.

Aaron,

So glad you have rejoined us–your insights have been missed by many… (as the multiple ‘welcome backs’ attest to!)
