Chloe’s Diary (Page 1)

My name is Chloe. And this is my diary. I am 19 years old and I live in what’s left of Florida with what’s left of my family. His name is Anderson (Andy for short) and he’s a 1yr old Labrador. He’s a great listener but I need somewhere I can keep my thoughts, my secrets…somewhere to record what’s been happening to us. It all started about a year ago, right around when Andy was born. There had been talk of an evacuation and drills for months before anything happened but no one would tell us what it was about, what was happening. They tried to cover it up and because of that they left their citizens unprepared and defenseless…they saved themselves.

I’m currently hiding in an undisclosed location out side of town. I can’t risk writing exacts here in case one of them finds it. I’m not even sure there’s any more humans left…what if I’m all that’s left? Besides not risking being too close to too many of them, Andy is still a puppy and his barking could get us into a lot of trouble any closer to the center of town…he’s a liability…but he’s all I have left.

Food is getting scarce and a trip into town is becoming inevitable. I’m going to have to leave Andy behind..he’s too loud to drag into town. Damn dog doesn’t know when to shut up.

Anyway, it’s getting dark and the stars aren’t shining as bright as they used to..

Until next time Diary,

If there is a next time.

When Your Anxiety is Convinced the World is Going to End

So before I go ahead and launch into this post a few notes of caution:

1-This post is probably mostly fueled by my anxiety. I’m sure the world leaders can handle the situations I talk about in this post or they wouldn’t be world leaders.

2-This post is depressing! If you want to be happy and keep your sanity I suggest reading one of my other posts. Maybe a poem or short story!

Without further ado, here we go.

So after reading 2 news articles I have fully convinced myself the world is going to end. Or, as I so eloquently just texted my friend at 11:30pm, “I read the news and I’ve convinced myself thaat we’re all going to die from nuclear war soon but all anyone cares about is what Kim Kardashian is wearing and the government only cares about making us poor people poorer when it won’t matter because the world is going to end before I even get married and have kids :(.”

And no, I did not use any punctuation in the actual text message either. I would also like everyone to keep in mind that I had the same level of anxiety while thinking about the end of the world as I did while texting my friend saying I wanted to change the design of the tattoo I’m getting for our best friend tattoos. Because, priorities.

So getting back to the article at hand, it was basically an article about the World getting a two minute warning to nuclear war according to the doomsday clock and about how North Korea doesn’t want to give up their nuclear weapons. This with an article I read about Russia developing a supersonic weapon that will be ready in 2 years sent my anxiety on a field trip.

Like I said before, I’m sure that everything will be fine and that world leaders will be able to handle it. My anxiety, however, has no faith in our world leaders at all. So here I am sitting in my bed and googling how to stop a nuclear war from the comfort of my bedroom.

On the other hand I seem to have no anxiety currently over my medical bills or my student loan or anything that is a more imminent threat than the end of the world.

 

I guess since my anxiety is currently convinced that the world is going to end, it figures I won’t have to worry about my financial and personal troubles as much. This is actually a plus since it give me a break from freaking out about everyday stuff like I usually do.

So, anyway, that’s my anxiety’s dilemma for the day. Give me any feedback below. I’d like to hear what your anxiety convinces you about, or even any tips or tricks people have to get themselves out of anxious moods like this where you worry way more than necessary. Or even your thoughts on the doomsday clock and potential end of the world.

As always, have a good night!
