Hi all,
Well my job is in serious jeopardy again.  Just a few months ago the only other drafter in our company was laid off.  I knew it was comming for almost three weeks and worried about which of us would go the whole time.  Now our company has just been sold and the product manufacturing will change and the whole department may go.  We won't know for a few weeks or months.
Worse than that though, my cat who was poisoned by the bad pet food may not last too much longer.  He is not eating well and is loosing weight and has periods of not feeling well mixed with periods of feeling ok.  His kidneys are now small and there isn't a whole lot they can do for him.  He is not suffering but I am.  He just turned three and is an indoors only cat and should have had a long life.  I have so many strong emotions about all of this.  It is breaking my heart, I live alone and my pets are my family.
I may be ok with loosing my job though.  I think I need to make some big changes in my life anyway.  My son starts college this year and I think I am going to move away from this area and start over somewhere else.  Whew, lots to think about lots to do.  Just writing all this down helps.  Thanks for reading and any words of encouragement.

Sometimes change is good. It's always stressful, but it CAN be a good stress.

I'm really sorry to hear about your cat.

Glad you posted Bluemeanies..I was wondering what was happening with you :-) sorry to hear about your cat - very sad indeed...but, you seem to be coping much better now - and that's fantastic!

Sounds as though you have reached a crossroad in your life and are ready for a fresh start...this could be a really positive thing for you and I wish you well!
