Is the zombie apocalypse real? Probably not. But an apocalypse isn't out of the question, either. Most of us think about it from time to time, knowing something should probably be done to prepare. Some of us maybe spend a little too much time worrying. Here's how to tell if you're too caught up in the prep.

1. You don't just watch The Walking Dead, you study it
