Wow...I've just been the bearer of horrible news lately. Hopefully this is the last...because I don't know how much more I can take.

I lost my job.

Thanks for letting share first my infertility news, then this. I really don't mean to bring anyone down.

Yes, I'm holding a pity party.

:( Nothing wrong with pity parties. Sounds like you deserve one. If it helps any, things have been going crazy for our family right now, too. One thing after another. Somebody told me that Mercury was in retrograde or something like that. Now, I don't really believe in all that stuff, but just in case, I'm praying that God moves Mercury out of the way real soon.

I'm so sorry for your troubles. Look up. Things have to turn around soon. You are in my prayers.

You are kidding me, Melissa!! What happened?? What a crummy time for you right now. You deserve to hold a pity party. I'll bring the Doritos.

Big, big hugs for you! You know where to find me if you need to talk about it!

I know this totally sucks! I'm praying for you.

Think of all the scrapping time you have now. (Hope that made you laugh!)

Hugs to you, my friend!

Ouch! Thats rough, I've been through it and took it really hard. Hang in there and believe in yourself. Remember - for every ending there is a new beginning.

I'm sorry Melissa! I don't want to make light of your situation, and it certainly doesn't pertain to your fertility issues, but as for the job, sometimes what seems like a horrible thing to happen, turns in to the best thing ever. My husband went through a slightly similar situation, and for while there, we had a really rough time dealing with it. In hindsight, three months later, it was the best thing that ever happened.

Hang in there :)

Sorry about your job situation.

Don't worry, the pity parties I throw usually come w/ engraved invitations. :)

Something that helped when I went through a rough time was to remind myself, "This too shall pass." Try to recall something bad that happened to you some time ago. Now, remember how horrible you felt back then, compared to how you feel about it now. Hopefully, the pain or unhappiness has been tempered by the passing of time. You will survive this too, though I know it may not feel that way right now.
Big hugs,
Lee

I want to ditto everything Julie said here. I truly believe that something even better will come your way. {{{HUGS}}} to you girl! I just hope in a few months from now, you can look back and say "Well thank goodness that happened because now..."

I'm sorry to hear this. It sometimes seems like crappy stuff comes in waves but you will ride this one out. Keep your head up and come vent when you need to.

efff!

I will bring the margaritas- that sucks!

(hey, try to look on the bright side- maybe you can take a short break to deal with all the stuff that you have felt with the infertility- relax, scrap, etc.)

I'm so sorry!! I can only offer hugs and P&PT. I was laid off when I was 7 months pregnant. It was so scary. I can only hope that this is a blessing in disguise.

Oh, man. What horrible news. I'm so sorry. :( Please, don't ever apologize for sharing bad news. That's what friends are for, and we're here to help you through it. Hugs!

Oh no Melissa! How much more will you have to take. :( Ugh. I am really so sorry for you. I love the saying "this too, shall pass....". Probably not what you want to hear right now but I just know some big things will be coming your way- they have to!!! ((hugs))

OH Melissa-that's horrible! I think you've had your fair share of bad news-it's time for some good stuff to come your way...positive thoughts coming your way!

Thanks everyone! You all are right...I think this is going to be a good thing in the end. I hated my job...it was in sales and that's just not my strong point...I used to like it, but now I have no passion for it...and that's what you need. I need to focus on my strong points...such as my creativity and my writing. My degree is in journalism, anyway.

Thanks again...I guess I have a lot of time to scrap now... :wink:

So sorry to hear this - that just sucks. Well, it sounds like you needed to make a change anyways, since you hated the job. I could never do sales - that is so hard. I'm sure that you will find something that is a better fit.

Melissa, I'm so sorry you're going through all this right now. I'll keep you in my prayers.
