I spent exactly 14months in pure survivor mode. Reading everything, cashing in all investments. $1500 costco carts and online survival shopping every night. I thought the end was around every corner, I was not ready so I lived in fear. I could not hide this impending doom and frenzy from anyone, including my kids. My husband was busy with prepping too and we are now a fairly self-reliant family with 4 acres, just small town suburbanites.
Then the SHTF. Between the solar powered barn and the 55 gallon drums of kerosene, my thin, athletic 44 year old husband had a heart attack. He lives thanks to incredible technology and medical genius. He will survive if I can squander enough plavix to keep his six heart stents free from blockage. Talk about nothing else matters. I’m in a different place now in my prepping. I like to take a blue pill every few nights with my glass of cabernet and picture my family eating sushi (which we love) forever.
My point is, don’t forget to look at who’s right in front of you and just love them. What Travlin said is so true, it might not fall apart any time soon….don’t waste your life worrying. But, It might fall apart tomorrow, so try to do something everyday.
Today I illegally photo-copied my husbands prescriptions and faxed them to Canada so I can stock up on another six month supply of meds (third time)! Never thought I had it in me, but I think that’s what separates us from the rest. We are not willing to sit back and hope someone takes care of us, we will be the remnant.
