|A strong, self-reliant new father is turned upside-down by "2012 Doomsday" scenarios, and seeks help.|
"I'm still not to the point where I was before it all started, but I've come a long way in a short time."
September 25, 2010
My story is a bit different from some of the others. I was more of a government skeptic than anything in the past few years. It was part of my survivalist personality. That is, stocking up on food, water-purification gear, and weapons. To an extent, I'm still skeptical of those in power, as we all should be. However, I know now that the world governments aren't all out to get us.
The 2012 stuff turned me upside down. I was skeptical of the government to begin with, so if the world was going end, why would I trust those in power to tell me? I think what got to me was a combination of the 2012 movie, Patrick Geryl's garbage, and the 2012 websites out there. As a new father hearing that the world was going to go to hell in a handbasket, and that no amount of ammo or medical supplies was going to save my family, it was pretty easy for me to lose it. I'd always imagined that if society broke down I was going to be ready to protect my family and keep on living. But it's pretty tough to save the ones you love from 2km-high tidal waves.
I felt helpless, and I couldn't convince anyone that it was real. It absolutely tore me up inside. I was the tough one in the house, so for my wife and parents to see me crying about not being able to save my family was humbling and alarming. That's when I sought help before it got truly bad. I said to myself, "If it's going to happen, I at least need to live the next two and a half years like it isn't." Fortunately, that's when I found this web site. I'm still not to the point where I was before it all started, but I've come a long way in a short time.
