well, as some know I've had some fun health issues the last 8 months or so and the day before yesterday we had a fun "trio" of surprises, the main one being that my wife, who happens to carry the health insurance between the two of us...I'm an independent contractor, was told that her entire division at work was being phased out. Which means that 40 people are gone from the company and they only have about 13 positions to absorb the people being lost. just a bit of a nervous time, both for her and I at the moment. Prayers would be appreciated

Mike, I am so sorry to hear about your situation. It hits very close to home because I am in a very similar situation. I am on non paid leave of absence from work due to my back being messed up and my wife carries the insurance where she works. If she loses her job it would be very hard to deal with. I will say a prayer for your family in hope that you get through this and that everything works out. God Bless.

Prayers are sent, hoping you & your family a speedy resolution.

The Lord works in mysterious ways! We may not understand what his plan is now, but rest assured he has one & it will reveal itself in time.

The world is changing and businesses no longer have any loyalty with their employees. I feel your pain. My wife was let go after 31 years with the same company. It is hard trying to find a job when you're a senior research scientist with a degree in chemistry. No one is looking to pay for senior level with they can hire two or three kids out of college to abuse. But I digress. Prayers sent. Good Luck.

I speak from experience. All you both can do is the best you can... and you must work together as a team... roll with the punches... keep your chins up.

I'd say what's ailing me and what's taking everything I worked for my whole life but this your thread.

I don't intend to sound harsh but many of us suffer through difficult times... at least we average folks do. There are those lucky ones who squeak by mostly unscathed in this life but those are the exceptions.

I'm sorry... but worrying so much about it serves no benefit for you or her. The best either of you can do is rebound... get up and beat these things causing you problems.

I am very sorry for this bad news Mike, you have my prayers and a huge amount of good karma coming your way. I understand very well, my wife and I both lost our jobs, have encountered some serious medical issues and cobra can be expensive. None the less, I do hope that the universe will be most kind and present your family with a wonderful new and lucrative opportunity.

Prayers up my friend! In the mean time - do not let anything or any news spoil you and your wife's day(s)....Just as this happened in one day - the answer to your prayers will come in the same way...on one certain day. Just live each day the best that you know how, acknowledge God and look for His direction.

Peace Bro Mike.

Mike, I am not a believer in prayer , but I do believe strongly in family. friendships , networking and asking for help when needed.... I was in a similar position several years ago and luckily my family was there for me to provide help for several months..This year I was forced to sell my Epson5040 to make ends meet in March.. ...I offer the same when I can these days as my X had been divorced and no job for several months... things will work out and not always the way we would want... I hope the best for you and your wife...
