The S**t Might Actually Be Hitting The Fan But Somehow It Doesn’t Feel Real

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

So here we are. Right on the cusp of that SHTF event that we’ve been prepping for all these years.

A global pandemic.

A breakdown in the supply chain.

Shoppers who are already becoming agitated and even violent.

We’re watching it all unfold in our hometowns and across our nation right now.

Yet, somehow, it still doesn’t feel real to me. Is it just me who finds this hard to fathom? Am I the only one who still thinks doubtful thoughts? Like “No way. It’s going to be okay. You’re overreacting. It’s a little scare, just like Ebola and MERS and SARS.”

I’ve researched and written about this stuff for years. I always knew it could happen. I was whole-heartedly convinced of these possibilities and yet when this situation began to move irrevocably toward disaster, I find myself, somehow, shocked.

I can’t be the only one who has prepared for this yet still feels stuck in normalcy bias, thinking “this isn’t going to get as bad as you think” even as I watch the events unfold around us pretty much like we in the survival community always predicted. There’s still that doubtful voice in my head, making me wonder about spending even more money on another “last” shopping trip.

Heck, maybe this makes me a bad prepper. A fake survivalist. A fraud.

Or maybe it’s only natural to think that life will keep moving on pretty much like it always has.

Will Covid-19 really be the thing that brings us down? Will the nation devolve into chaos? I’d like to say no with firm conviction. After all, there have been close calls before. But the rational part of me won’t allow that firm conviction, despite the part that says, don’t be silly, everything will be just fine after a brief blip.

I believe it’s okay to feel this way as long as you don’t allow it to get in the way of your preparations or of your acceptance of the disaster when it actually unfolds in all its shocking reality.

Maybe I’m oversharing here and a whole bunch of folks will unsubscribe. I don’t know. But if others are feeling the same way, I want you to know that you aren’t alone.

i do have more to say on this, if you or anyone is interested. Let us try to have a discussion? Be back later.
i believe Trump has called for a day of prayer, i would suggest looking in to all involved, and how this aligns with scripture.

Or anyone that can: Notice the Be hive looking background? Use discernment from above. They are to televise this at 9 and at 11. Coincidence 9:11? Makes one wonder.
Make no mistake, i have faith we will endure.

It feels real to me only because I do expect biological warfare to hit home in the near future.
I also consider this deadly virus as a dry run learning, prepping lesson for Americans and our paternal government officials.

All the actions taken throughout the years by our federal and state governments tell me they are rapidly collapsing under their own weights for stepping outside the original constitution enumerated powers.

The Fed Has Pumped $9 Trillion into Wall Street Over the Past Six Months, But Mnuchin Says “This Isn’t Like the Financial Crisis”

State and Local Governments’ Fiscal Outlook:
2019 Update
GAO-20-269SP: Published: Dec 19, 2019. Publicly Released: Dec 19, 2019
What’s the latest thinking regarding the fiscal health of state and local governments across the nation?
The 2019 update to our annual outlook on the fiscal condition of states and localities suggests that the sector will have an increasingly tough time covering its bills over the next 50 years. Although our model shows revenue will increase, spending will likely rise faster—driven largely by health care costs, including Medicaid spending. Revenues may be insufficient to sustain the amount of government service currently provided.
