Oh Poodles...so sorry you are going through this. Stress of any kind does a number on our bodies...but of course you know that. I love it when companies keep people dangling on their toes and just do not 'lay off' or 'fire' so they don't have to pay unemployment benefits. We have a friend who is a security guard and they haven't taken him off their books in two years yet have not offered him a job during that time either (he works mainly at sporting events). No unemployment as they still show him as an 'employee'.
I live in a county where 62% of the population is on some kind of assistance due to our two major employers moving out. There are food banks here and WIC for children...as well as food stamps. I don't know where you live but maybe you could investigate your local programs for temporary help with food and your medications. Maybe your hubbies doctor has samples of the drugs he needs???
I wish I could help you more. Too many of us are suffering from this horrific economy bust. The unemployment rate is three times what the government stats show, as people like your husband are still considered working! You might go to the food stamp office and show them your last pay check stubs and see if they can help you.
Poodles, I am so sorry for the mess that is going on w/ your dh's job, that is just horrible. Then add all the stress on top of that for both of you. The company my dh works for is pulling a lot of 'crap' w/ its employees, also. They have been told to eliminate at least 400 jobs thru out the co, his place is trying to do that in their building alone. The stress is almost unbearable.
I agree w/ Donna, check out the food stamps, and any food banks in the area, like at your church. Hopefully, they can give you some assistance.
For all the noise that the economy is on the upswing, we certainly aren't seeing it here. My son is in construction, nothing is happening in construction and most other places are not hiring. He is young, strong, healthy (Thank you, God) and is a hard worker, still not getting anywhere.
I wish I had more to offer you, but pls know you and your family are in my prayers.
God bless. Alice.
