Only In America. Land Of The Free To Take.

My life has turn around drastically in the last couple of months. The month of December 2008 was the last day of my employment. I feel like I am too old to be looking for a job and not old enough to retire. It is like being between a rock and a hard place. Not to feel sorry for myself.
I have been out trying to get help with my medical situation and trying to get prescription assistance. I am on medication and have no way of getting it.

The area of the world where I live is completely jobless at this time because of layoffs, closings and other things.

If there is a job available so many people are applying for it that it makes the headline news. It is just that serious around here.

I have yet to start drawing my unemployment insurance. I can draw that for 7 months whenever it does start. And with the extension a little longer.

I have been working and caring for myself and my family all my adult life and this is something I never thought will happen to me.

And don't let me forget to mention that I worked for one company for 24 years and it went bankrupt and lost all of our retirement money. Now ain't that ashame. I say only in America can that happen.

This other job that just closed on me I worked there for 9 plus years and they didn't have a retiremnent program but I did have 401K. If you have been watching the news you know what is happening to that. Now what is a person to do. An old person at that. I can only pray and take it one day at a time.

God Bless Us All.
