I studied collapsonomics for many years as a visiting scholar at UC-Davis (University of Collapse). At that time I was a collapsoholic. The first thing I would do every morning was pound three shots of the strongest collapsoholic beverage I could find. I was writing and publishing at least one and sometimes two long form articles describing various aspects of the coming collapse of America daily. I was in serious denial and when people asked I would tell them that I was nothing more than a collapsophile or possibly collapsomaniac at worst, but I didn’t have a problem. Many times I would accuse them of collasophobia or suggest they were the ones with the problem, not me. I could stop thinking, talking, and writing about the coming collapse of America anytime I wanted. I was wrong. Not only was I spending every waking hour studying collapsonomics, I was also devouring all the classics of collapsosophy, collapsomatics, collapsoneering, collapsiology , and collapschology at the same time. It was impossible to keep up and I almost collapsed from exhaustion at least three times each day. Luckily one day I stumbled across the works of Umair Haque, and by following his program as described in Collapsinetiks found a path to inner peace and sanity. Finally I am free of the constant, never-ending urge to write about the collapse of America and can refocus my energies on hoping things just sort of work themselves out for the best in the end.
