in regard to the OP, i'm sorry to hear about your anxiety over it, but i'd say you should just keep living and enjoying your current life as long as
possible. you don't want something that may not even happen to distract from the things you love and dream of.
it's wonderful to be prepared, i'm not arguing against preparation in the least, and if something does happen (which i think is very likely), then
you and yours will ideally be able to survive it as comfortably as possibly thanks to your preparation. if nothing happens, however, i just think you
would be sad to look back on the things you might have missed out on by being totally fatalistic.
so again, my advice is to devote only a set amount of time every week or month to emergency preparedness training with your family, and only a set
amount of your income designated toward survival gear/supplies and apart from that, put it out of your mind until it happens.
i, on the other hand, am unlike most people, my dream IS for the STHF. the only times i've felt life was worth living so far were in the rare
circumstances where it was live or die. my existence seems so mundane that i couldn't think of anything better than a worldwide 'reset' button
being pressed, after which i only have one solid, meaningful purpose in life: to survive.
