somehow found the inner strength

Today I joined the forces of the unemployed. After being in the field for 37 years. I thought I had 13 years to retirement but recieved the pink slip today. I was able to stay away from the carb comfort food, so yes I have achieved that goal Now decisions must be made about the future and how to adjust income to pay bills, since I was a major factor in our income. A person needs to be in business for themselves and not rely on big business. Life marches on!

I have a few weeks left to find a job before I'm in the same boat, but as I've only been out of school for 1.5 years, I have nothing saved and a ton of debt...

so sorry *hug* life is never certain. don't think being in business for oneself is a guarantee! most people who start businesses lose them in a few years, along with the savings they invested in them. all we can do is live on less than we make, whatever we are doing, and save for these bad times.
