    Devastated...DH just called and told me he is being outprocessed..layoff

    We have given 16 years and countless moves across the country for this company....I really have nothing to say...I'm in shock. We've never been without a paycheck before....I didn't even think about losing our insurance until I was talking to my mom and she was talking about picking up her scripts at the pharmacy....oh my god....what are we going to do....

    sorry...I'm a mess right now...my hands are shaking and I just want to crawl under a rock and make it all go away...

    Dear shell.scraps - so sorry to hear about your situation. Been there too (worked for the hospital for 19 years and 9 months - then laid off) I remember this as one of the worst moments. But, GOD had another plan for me and it was much better. You are in my prayers.

          What a shocker that must be. As the others have said, there's a better plan out there waiting for you both. What kind of work does he do?

            I am so sorry. I have been there and got the Tshirt. First take a deep breath. There will be unemployment for awhile and maybe severance pay. That will keep you going for awhile and you can cobra you insurance for 18 months. I know it feels like you had a door slammed in your face but God doesn't close a door unless he opens a window. A window of oppertunity for a do over. Take it one day at a time and it will all work out I am living proof. God is good and he will watch over you and see you through this hard time. I will keep you in my prayers Linda

              I'm sorry for you too. I know the feeling well. After working for someone for 12 years he just gave me the boot because he couldn't afford to pay me anymore. I too was devasted but this may be a blessing in disguise. I got another job, making more money, more friends, and it turned out to be a good thing. It will for you and your husband too. You'll see. God works in mysterious ways.

                My brother went through this in 1989 when AT&T closed near the Pentagon. But, his pride wouldn't let him apply for unemployment. So, get what you deserve after all these years and you will find out there is life out there. In spite of hubby's employer. Hang in there. We are thinking of you and your family.

                  I'm so sorry Michele. I know you must be shell shocked at the moment. But the girls are right, there will be a better job coming and a better chance maybe to stay in one place and not have to move around so much. They are right, God doesn't give us more than we can handle. Sometimes I wish He wouldn't trust us so much with this but He does. Just keep your head and you will be fine. Have a cup of tea, make a list of things you must do: checking on insurance, unemployment paperwork you will need, Think about where you would like to live. You can choose a place to call home and maybe get work that is less traveling. It will be a fresh start.
                  You are in my prayers. Hugs, Jan L

                      Special prayers being said for you and your family. Hang tough - What a shocker for you.

                          Oh Sweetie - I am praying for you and your family too. I can't imagine what a shock that must have been. But the gals are right. There is something better out there - it's just too bad that you don't know what it is yet. I always figured that at least He could give a clue. In the meantime, listen to the gals. Sit down with a cup of tea (or me - I'd have some coffee with a little strong of something put in it) and make a list of what you've got to do. Don't be too proud to get unemployment - it is there to help and he has paid into it for times like these.

                            Same sentiments here. You've paid into unemployment so take it. If your DH had insurance through his company then they probably owe you Cobra. It can be expensive but at least you will still have coverage. Then think about what expenses you can reduce or eliminate. Save as much of the severance as you can. I've been there too and unemployment is a blessing, just pay attention to when and how you need to report in to them. Sometimes unemployment offers classes or training, if so take advantage of it.

                              When God closes a door He opens a window. I have also been there. I learned a lot through it, though. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
