I wish it was Dec. 31, 1999 tonight!

I am mentally exhausted from always thinking about Y2K and physically exhausted from all the work I am doing to prepare. I just wish it would get here and I could move on with life. Anyone else feel this way? Mary

No, but I have felt that way before and I do see your point.

I'm grateful that we have one more year to shift the probable realities quite a bit. And yes, I'm tired of Y2K too. If it hit tonight, at this level of non-preparedness, nation and world-wide, it would be a major disaster.

You'll soon get over the Y2K jitters. Step back awhile from the computer and any news associated with Y2K. Take a vacation, go for a hike, read a nonviolent book, do something for yourself to renew your spirit and sanity. You'll come back refreshed and you won't look at Y2K as an exhausting experience, but as an experience that means survival.

I'm thankful for whatever time is left to finish preparations...(if there is such a thing as finish). I've also had the same thoughts...the suspense and anticipation can be wearying.

Hang in there Holly...breathing is always in order. Everybody got their helmet?

I'm sorry...(brain fade) Not Holly...MARY! doh...!

You too, Mary...all of us...breathe, make sure the helmet is nearby.

Mary, I feel this way all the time. Literally. I get majorly depressed about it too. Then, I step back, push myself away from my 'puter and go do more prepping. Seems to help. Now, husband and I are trying to decide if we should "bug out" in spring and move lock stock and barrel, or ride it out here. We are trying to weigh the pros and cons of this. Argh... I too am sick of it, but we do what we gotta do. Hang in there. That's all we can do. Bobbi

We all do what we think is best for us and our families. Who would have it any other way? Which is why I am never nasty with anyone who is serious or honest about Y2K. Now I am known to get down with fakers and liars - but there are very few of those on this forum - a major reason for hanging out here.

Rest up and read a good novel or something. Or some history about the Roman Empire or Alexander the Great. Those old boys had problems out the wazoo. And they made it for a long time.

Spending every minute thinking about any trouble you can't avoid is a surefire way to generate nightmares, insomnia and anxiety. None of that is a help in anyones life.

Happy New Year everyone!

Aah, glasshopper, you wish you could move on with your life. Don't you know, honolable glasshoppa, that your life is always right here? This is your life right now :)

someone coined the term Pre-Millennial Syndrome (PMS), a type of manic depression, with bigger oscillations as we progress through 1999. i wonder if there's a "silly scope" to measure this. maybe robert cook will devise one for us.

Main reason I wish Y2K was right now? There is so much snow outside I coudl flush toilets for WEEKS. No joke...I am being dumped on right now. More snow than the past 2 years COMBINED!
