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.
