On This Day Pre-Y2K

I’m not quite sure how to explain all the emotions that I am currently going through. I have just had another big row with my husband about Y2K. I have just been told that I am paranoid and that he is fed up with having to deal with it all the time. He doesn’t think that the problem is all that serious and that things will be just fine next year.

The other day when I tried to read something to him that I had found over the net he went ballistic and we ended up having a huge argument. He shouted at me then, “what do you expect me to do about it.” I attempted to write about it then but was too upset and thought better of it. However, I simply have to tell someone. This isn’t a subject that I have a lot of people that I can talk to about. My mother will think I am crackers so I know I can’t talk to her about it.

I am feeling really scared right now because my husband doesn’t seem to understand. Over the past week he has confirmed my worst fears that he really wasn’t that bothered about it. I have tried to talk to him about it, but felt that he didn’t really care. He has now confirmed this and I don’t know what to do now. I am scared for our children. I am really frightened about how I am feeling. I knew our marriage was on shaky ground but this situation is really bringing home how bad it has become. I really feel like packing up and leaving but where do I go and what do I do. It doesn’t seem like a good time to be doing that right now. What really scares me is not being prepared and being stuck with someone who basically doesn’t care. I can’t imagine what he is going to be like if the SDHTF. I mean he’s not much of a handy man at the best of times. He never does anything around the house or yard.

Over the years he has become even more mean-spirited and just plain hard to get on with. The other week he came home one Friday and was actually in a good mood. So much so that one of our children even remarked on how happy daddy was. It’s bad when one of your children remarks on it. His happy mood didn’t last for long though.

I don’t know what to do now. I am really scared and can’t believe that I now find myself in this awful position. I am really scared for our children. I have been trying to tell myself for the past two or three weeks that this Y2K thing isn’t that bad but I can’t shake this bad feeling that I have about it. I know my husband is not going to do anything about it and that anything I do shall cause problems.

Thank you for listening and I realise that somehow I have to deal with this situation myself and try and do what’s best for my children. It’s just right now I feel really alone and scared.

You know, I’m more concerned by the fact that the “powers that be” felt the need to attempt to deceive people on this more than I am at the fact that the ng is going to be deployed.

And for those who don’t follow the genre, on the conspiracy front, the black helicopters and white U.N. vehicle sightings are spiking. There are reports that groups of non-english speaking U.N. troops that have been stopped, and questioned. Attempts to detain these groups for further investigation have been unsuccessful. The rumored construction or renovation of closed military bases that will serve as *camps* is almost complete, the rail cars have been located at key distribution points throughout the U.S., most are sitting idle on rail spurs in major metro area rail yards. In addition, the choke points on the national interstate highway system have been designated and the support facilities for operations on these points have been constructed, and at critical junctures, the actual divergence facility has been constructed and is now awaiting orders from Leavenworth and the deployment of the guard to man and put the operation into motion.

Sightings of the NASA designed “Black Triangle” UAV’s, known by many now to be HALO communication/Psy-ops platforms are increasing world-wide, as testing and prototyping have been completed and the vehicles are now being delivered to Federal Agencies and Intelligence entities, who in turn are wasting no time in deploying these aircraft for their own uses.

Yep, It’s all starting to come together now.
