I'm not sure if its just my emotions running high or what, but as of late I have been pretty much living in fear without knowing who to turn to.
After reviewing an excessive amount of videos/reading articles/reading threads/reading public opinions etc., I feel as though the United States is
heading towards a depression in the near, very near, future; or so I have been told, countless times as of late.
With that said, I feel as if all the odds are stacked against me as far as survival goes.
Some information about myself.
I am a twenty-six year old female living in the eastern area of the United States. I currently reside with my mom and her live-in boyfriend of sorts,
and we are what would be considered middle-class, struggling to make ends meet but by no means what I would consider poor. They are very much
oblivious to everything that is occurring and no amount of informing them has been a success, thus far; as goes for pretty much my whole family
'living in one big bubble without a care of what might happen'. Ignorance is bliss I suppose. They live in what I would refer to as a 'bubble'
thinking that 'everything will be okay', 'nothing will happen' etc. I am unemployed, living in the suburban Philadelphia area. [I do not mind
disclosing these facts, as anyone with a little sense and skill in IP tracing can find this out for themselves, for the most part] I have little, well
actually pretty much zero dollars. My mom is not buying up on food or items that can possibly be used for barter purposes[alcohol, bullets, guns,
medicines, bottled water, etc], being as that she thinks that 'nothing is going to happen'. So I pretty much feel as though I am screwed. Really,
If what has been continuously predicted comes true [the fall of the US dollar, our economic systems total collapse, recession, entering into a
full-blown depression, etc] then what in the world can I as a person do to help save myself? And I am willing to bet that there are many many other
people in my age group that are in the same predicament, as well as people older than I, and those that are younger as well.
Any information will be immensely appreciated. Thank you in advance.
