Recession Depression

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. :)

This from your 11.18 post:

"My job is never done."

Guess again.

Hi Jeanie,
I just happened to stumble upon your blog, and I want to say I'm really sorry about all that you had to go through.

I'm going through a really tough phase as well, so I can empathize. Hang in there!
