i have made zero preparations. the only thing i am interested in doing is converting all my savings into gold or silver.
i recently watched the documentary collapse and i understand that things could go that way, but i dont want to ruin my happy life, now, worrying about it. i want to enjoy everything i have.

I have not prepared anything for my family. I know I need to but I just do not have ANY extra money to do it. My husband does not "believe", and I do not speak of these things to my two daughters age 6 and 10. I like it that they still think all is well. I live literally paycheck to paycheck and there is not a dime left over 4-5 days before my next check. But inside me it is like a panic/anxiety storm is raging. I live with a tremendous amount of guilt around this, as I do feel like I desperately need to do something... NOW
I just have not figured out how to do this as of yet. With some very near possible end dates looming ... September, October, November... my anxiety spikes more with every day that passes.

I'm not simply because of monetary issues. At the moment, I can't make much cash, and have about $95 to my name. As soon as that problem is resolved, military surplus here I come!

Ha great minds aye and I'd also like to add that after things calmed down a bit I would probably start to form some sort of community with people that wanted to help each other out there is strength in numbers and if they were smart they'd probably rather join up than try and run up on a group of people. See I'm not really sure how but I still have faith that there are more good people out there than you think they just never get the praise that they deserve.
