    I guess this is a continuation of my thread earlier..

    At the end of last week, my company laid me off.

    I feel so lost; I have to say this is one of the worse feelings that I have had in a long time. I really thought that I would be okay emotionally handling it; but the emotional part is the worse part. I don't know why it's affecting me like this; it is ONLY a job after all .. but it honestly has really turned me inside out.

    Thanks for listening.. guess I am thinking that it will help me feel better if I just get out what I am feeling.

      Oh no, I am so sorry Shannon.

      My FI was let go from his job on NYE day. We have so many other friends and family members who have been let go since.

      He took it as an opportunity to go back to school, which is working out well for now anyways.

      It really is tough, emotionally.

        Wow, I am so sorry. And honestly, you are allowed to feel bad emotionally! It's a sucky situation, no matter how well you prepared for it, it's still hard. So you have to let yourself go thru those feelings. Let it all out here, that's what we are here for. {Virtual hugs to you}

            I'm so sorry Shannon. Hang in there and feel free to be upset for a while. Things will eventually work out.

              i was laid off about 2 months ago, and dealing with it emotionally is the toughest part so don't feel bad about that. i didn't even like my job, but i was still devastated. give yourself a week or two to feel like crap, then just stop. do your best to not let it go longer than that. look for a job and be aggressive about it, but still let this be an opportunity to do some things you never had a chance to because you were too busy. chances are, you'll never have this much free time until you retire!

              i wrote this in your other thread, but i'm in nj also, so if you have any questions about the unemployment process let me know.

                I am so sorry to hear this happened to you. All I can offer you is that things will look up sooner or later I'm sure!

                  I'm sorry hon, things are tough for so many people these days, it totally sucks that this is happening everywhere. Just remember that every closed door opens others, so take this time to venture out on new opportunities ~ lots of hugs

                      I'm sorry Shannon. So many people are going through this right now... both of my parents and my FIL are laid off right now (Michigan is horrible). It's scary and frustrating, but try to take some time to do things you normally wouldn't get to do. Hopefully something better will come along...
