I AM a psychologist and, despite 3 years of discussion with my therapist spouse, am no closer to having her even consider any possible changes happening in our collective or personal futures. We have had rather heated discussions, to say the least.
I have stored some food in the basement, to ridicule, acquired various small survival items, purchased and read various books, started whatever garden will fit, and continued an interest in firearms that she thinks is for Neanderthals. I won’t go into more detail other than to say that some people will never change and you need to work around them or leave for a different setting, as difficult as that is.
I still don’t know what will happen here.
