I know its not going to happen, but....

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

All day at work I had to hear about * DoomsDay * and now I can't get it off my mind! I have bad anxiety issues to begin with, and this isn't helping my stress levels at all. 

Call me silly, or stupid, I don't care, but now I'm so stressed out I can't sleep for fear of some creeper coming into my house, or something even worse happening. Please ladies, reassure me that NOTHING is going to happen today. Just to get my stress levels back down to normal.

Thanks.

Hope your father & hubby stay safe in the weather . me and my so are up but my son is fast asleep and my puppy is crying he had surgery :(


Quoting krystyneh:

Oh wow we haven't had to do that thankfully. My dad is on the fire department and He's waiting for a fire call because of this weather. My husband is an over the road truck driver and he's driving in this weather :( I wish he was home. At least my 2 dogs and my cat and 5 year old daughter is keeping me company even if they are all sleeping except for me lol

We had to reset the breakers four times .






Quoting krystyneh:

Yeah same here but because of the wind...I hope the weather calms down soon (which it's not supposed to until around 7pm my time) because I have to work 10am-7pm tomorrow

Quoting krystyneh:

I have anxiety issues too...I fell asleep from exhaustion then had to pee at 2:30am and now it's 4:05 here in Vermont and the wind is very bad and the weather is bad...I don't believe it will happen but no one knows for positive. I've been reading other posts about it that have helped ease my mine but my anxiety still won't go down. Good luck and hopefully soon you can fall asleep.

From the Mayan calendar and a runaway planet called “Nibiru,” from killer asteroids and theories about galactic alignments: The internet is full of talk about the world ending on December 21.

NASA scientists recently addressed some of the most pervasive of these rumors around the dubious date. Take a look:

Mayan calendar
The Mayan calendar began somewhere around 3,114 years before the current era, and is set to end on December 21 or 23 (depending on the translation). NASA scientist Mitzi Adams describes what the Mayans would have done had their civilization lasted and why there is no cause for alarm.



Runaway planet
Is an ancient Sumerian planet called “Nibiru” on a collision course with Earth? NASA scientist David Morrison explains how you can dispel this rumor all by yourself.

Galactic alignment
Will the Earth, Sun and center of the Milky Way line up in December? Yes! But as three astronomers explain, it happens every December and is not a sign of doomsday.

Solar apocalypse
Like any other star, the sun will eventually use up its hydrogen core, expand and engulf the Earth. But don’t rush out to buy Red Giant insurance for your home by December 21 — you have about 5 BILLION years to prepare. Two NASA scientists explain.

Killer asteroid
There is a real, long-term concern about possible asteroid impacts, and that’s why NASA has been scanning the heavens, cataloging them for nearly 20 years. And as two NASA scientists will tell you, not a single object has been found that’s on a collision course with Earth.

Polar shift
One internet rumor about the world ending on December 21 is that the Earth will shift on its axis. Astronomer Andrew Fraknoi explains how it’s just not possible to change the way our planet rotates in a single day.

Nothing is going to happen this is Y2K all over again. And it will be the same thing in a few years when some quack says the world is going to end again on such and such day

 Thank you. This helped a little bit.....althought halfway thru reading it my dumbass brother came up behind me ( yes I was that zoned out ) and scared the holy shit out of me by pretending to be a damn zombie! He almost got a faceful of steaming hot garlic and herb mashed taters and mac and cheese!
