So sorry to hear about
I hope you can find ways to take good care of yourself while you get through this. Know that everything will work out, it always does, and sometimes for the best!
I like to treat myself to bubble baths, or walks (short ones, round and round to stay near a bathroom, if necessary). Take advantage of the forced break from work by accomplishing some tasks around the house, like painting or home repairs, or spending a little more time exercising to get your body stronger than ever. That always made me feel better when I was between jobs, and keeps the anxiety level down.
Take charge and try to arrange for your expenses to be minimized, such as asking for a month or so of forgiveness on the payments for house or credit cards, to give yourself time to find a new job.
Good luck, and I'm keeping you in my thoughts.
