Lost my job, it was eliminated. Computer crashed. Husband hurt his back so bad he can't walk or lift anything. This stupid Droid works when it wants to or I simply just don't know how to work it (most likely the later). The dogs have lost their minds, I think they feel our stress and are acting out and not listening. I think I've hit my quota for the next couple of years. Ugh

Don't tempt fate. Things could ALWAYS be worse. I've had a pretty stressful last couple of years but things are starting to turn around (just).

Keep your head up and don't let things get you down. I know it's easy for me to say from half a world away but it's true. I'm sure you'll find work soon and I hope your husband heals up.

What Aus_staffy said is correct. I lost my job in 2004 at a company I had been with for years. Since then I had to rely on BS Temp Agencies to get a job, where the meaning of equal opportunity is "they treat everyone alike, just like s**t." I didn't let it get me down. I was motivated. The more I heard I was "over-qualified" (A BS $50 term meaning they know I'm worth more than they're willing to pay me), the more I looked.

Fast forward to now. After only having one good job (company closed) in all that time, for a year, I just got my ticket to a job, with a union, FT, with the company. I'm about to go to work now, and it was a long wait...depression will slow you down, never lift you up. I'm sorry to hear of your woes, but stand up, move on, and don't think in a negative manner. Bug the eck out of places so your name is well known, and they'll want to get you a job just to get rid of you.....

Good Luck.......

Loads of wisdom in old sayings "...count your blessings..." there are plenty of people who'd trade places w/u in a heartbeat. The world can be a very hard place.
