    Oh wow, that's horrible! I'm so sorry you had to deal with that! I can't even imagine how I would have dealt with that being said to my face! We had a couple say to another friend of ours that they felt our choice to have a DW was a personal attack on them b/c they have a baby. I'm pretty sure when I was planning this I really only had my and my FI in mind!

      Yeah, we are no longer friends. She said and did a few things that upset me since I got engaged that has brought our friendship to an end.

      barbiegirl- Ha! I can't believe people think so much of themselves to think that you would plan our wedding just to attach her! Seriously

        I was laid off in March 2009 from a similar situation - been there 5 years - great ratings and reviews, etc...they kept people who hadn't been there as long and weren't doing as well.


        and even though it's been over a year, I'm still not completely over the hurt that they let me go, even though i "know" in my head I should be, I'm better off, all those things. And, i know the others that got laid off with me feel the same way.

        Fast forward a year and now they are calling me to come back as a contractor - same as you - getting paid less, hourly, and no benefits.

        I've declined.

        Getting laid off is a major life event - many people do get very depressed, anxious - all the feelings you describe are very normal - and it's good that you have a therapist to talk about these things.

        Is there any way you can look for another job while you're working? I'm working hourly somewhere else now - taking the knowledge I got at the original company and using it to help another. Is it the great job I used to have - no - but it's a job, and I work here till I can get something better - maybe if you think of it as using your ex-employer to get to where you need to be next.

        Good luck!
        Man that sucks eh? I knew I wasn't the only on (obviously), but you're the first person I've found that feels the EXACT same as me. Sorry you had to go through it too I've thought of other jobs. I keep looking in the paper and online. The money I'm making there is still great though. I really need it right now. I'm going to stick it out and see what happens in the future. I don't know if I'm so angry because of the manager, the other employees, my supervisor - I don't know. I love what I do, but sometimes there's a trigger that'll just set me off and I'll feel miserable the rest of the day/week.

        Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

          People do just really suck some times.

          And my job is making me feel like people suck most of the time.
          DH has been pressuring me to get a new job for months because mine makes me miserable and stresses me out to a point that it's not in anyway worth the time, energy, or pathetic paycheck. I had an interview today that went great but is a big paycut and I just can't make myself be happy about it if they offer me a job. I hate this economy for making it so hard to just make a living working at crap jobs when all I want is to finish school and finally get a job that I love doing. Especially when I'm so close to finally getting a degree! DH means well but I might just lose it with him next time he makes a comment about me sending more people my resume. It's like he thinks I'm not even trying. Grr.

          Thanks for the vent.

            My job sucks to! I'm really starting to regret the career path I chose, but think it's too late to change and can't afford to drop to a 'training' salary!

            I hate the way money always drives any decision I make!

              I kind of regret my career choice. I’m an accountant and even though it is boring and I HATE my job (I hate the company I work for since my boss make my life miserable), there are plenty of accounting jobs out there right now in this economy and I have recruiters calling me all the time still. BUT if money wasn’t an issue I would quit my job and go back to school to be a registered dietitian.

                      when you find the answer let me know.

                      my confession: I had a popsicle and nutella (just a spoonful!!) when I got home from work.
