I am (was) on vacation this week and work called yesterday to tell me the doors are shut for the whole company effective this Friday. I am management so I knew this would probably happen soon. I havebeen there 21 yrs and it is very scary and sad. Part of me is also relieved that I can take a couple months and get some of this pain under control. I have struggled badly the last 6 months to get to work, do my job, and manage my health. My boss, who I had a decent work relationship with, does not deal with illness well and made my life hell the last 2 yrs. In the last 6 months, he has repeatedly threatened my job and harassed me on a personal level and I am glad I will not have to see him everyday anymore. The stress he gave me did not help my health. On another note, I do not believe I am capable of finding another job any time soon and any manual labor is out of the question. My financial future scares the crap out of me. I am single and live alone so I am the only income. My home is small but I bought it 11 yrs ago and have worked hard on it. I feel at this point that financially it is my health or my home and I must find a way to have both. I just don't know where to begin and am scared to death of making wrong decisions that will lose me one or the other.
So I am going today to clean out my office and start a hard but new chapter of my life.
