Well, isn't this just ducky.
After 11 years, I got laid off yesterday. On a stress scale, I think I'm off the charts.
First there was the thyroid biopsy (which turned out fine).
Then there was the anemia problem.
Then the failing kidneys.
Then 3-days-a-week, 3.5 hour dialysis sessions.
And now I have no job!
I believe it is highly possible for an elephant to fall on my head.
Actually - I think I'll be ok. I'm eligible for SSI, which could take five months to resolve. In the meantime, I'll do unemployment (think a 60-year-old dialysis patient is readily hireable?). Fortunately Medicare (for kidney dialysis) will kick in December 1.
The good news:, , , , , , I do NOT have to drive in snow to work. :)
