Not sure this is the best place to post this, but I think it's a problem a lot of us are having now: Given the recent news, I've been struggling a lot with hopelessness about the possibility of a catastrophic nuclear war. It's become a major impediment to both my mental health and my ability to care about EA causes. I've been thinking of things my family could realistically do in the event that things appear to be moving southward (packing bags and having a plan to getting out of the area if we have enough warning, and planning on ways to end things quickly if we don't). But I'm still pretty horrified at it all and finding it hard to function.
Any advice? How do you keep enough hope to keep at it?
