Maybe it is time to shake it off. You are in a good profession for bouncing back. Time to get your interview face on and get back in the game. You can do it!

Dee:

Losing a job over the past seven years is traumatic. I can understand your pain.

I was let go from a job and I went to a temp agency and started working the day after and cried for the whole day. It's emotionally exhausting. I know your mind is running a mile a minute.

I cannot tell you to try to relax, but I can tell you that if you feel like you are reaching the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

hmmmm I understand the need to have an ear to cry to but I also understand how your friend feels. You gotta get going and out there looking for the new gig. Heck you guys are hard to find folks are paying top dollar for those in your profession.

Talk to O have him help you with that resume.

Dee:

Did you file for unemployment insurance yet?

If you apply, and your company doesn't respond w/n ten days of the date of mailing, they will have to go through an appeals process for the claim.

For your reason, don't lie, but tell the truth, in that you didn't think that this was grounds for termination. An unemployment insurance group is looking to grant you the money, but will take contests from the employer.

So, give it a shot.

Here is the link to apply for UI benefits online:

Dee change is so difficult sometimes but you have to make that move. You are a nurse in a very open field. In Missouri, every place from the hospital, clinics, to universities are looking for a nurse. You been through all the hard stuff I went back and read some of your blogs. So now you are getting ready to face something much more pleasant than you think. Just go for it my friend.

Sometimes you don't want to hear the real straight truth, but sometimes it is worth listening to. You'll be ok. Have a good weekend Dee.

Well, you know what I'm going through and I can't even imagine what my response would be if someone told me that. I guess that's why I just don't even discuss my problems with my friends or family. Its just too hard.

Yeah you might as well say F**K 'Em and move on. you can't turn the clock back. The best thing is that you learned from it and now you are going to be ok. Don't feel bad about Boss Lady either. I'm sure you expressed your remorse to her so now let it go. You will only make yourself sick and you can't change things. Hold your head up girly and get you another job. A better one!

Blessings!

Dee, I guess your friend wants to prevent you from getting in a depressed state of mind. Instead, she's encouraging you to keep your spirits high and in the mind to carry on. You'll get that next job.

when I was in that position, I wish I had folks to be straight with me instead of accepting my mood/depression as a given and letting me be. I needed that type of motivation.
