  • You aren't alone. I've been out since July 27th. Still no luck. After making most of the money for 6 years...It's a hard battle. I mentally feel somedays that, I'm useless and bring nothing to the table. Luckily, I have a DF who is supportive and has shown me all the things I do for him, do matter and he does appreciate even the smallest things (getting his work clothes laid out while he's in the shower). Talking to someone about how you feel about it really does help. It's hard to lean on people and let them help you. At least for me I'm not used to being taken care of. Keep your head up! I feel now as though my job loss has been a blessing in disguise and has brought us closer together.

  • Take it from me.
    The economy is bad.
    and there is not much hope with this joker Obama.
    So just hang in there like I am having to do and someday there will be jobs for Women "Again"
    and no you are trying,
    and It is "NOT" your fault.
