I am Just Sick

Today DM got a phone call from his biggest client telling him he was pulling the plug on all projects DM currently had for him in his office. He, too, has hit hard times. So not only does DM not have any new work in, what little work he did have is now gone for who knows how long.

We have to decide what is going to happen and on Monday tell his employees whether or not they still have a job.

I think this is the beginning of the end. What the fuck are we going to do?

  1. You’ll start over. You have your parents, and you can go live with them, and while you are there, you’ll be able to work on a plan of what to do. You’ll focus on the positives – that you do have your parents to help you, and that you have each other, and you won’t be homeless or starving. You’ll hang in there. You’ll do what you have to do. I know, it sucks and it’s hard and you just want to cry. I’ve been there, and I had to live with my parents for a year to get back on my feet, and it was terrible, and I hated myself, but I did it. And I got through it, and you will too. You are smart, and you have a great family, you’ve said so. It won’t be ideal, but you will make it work.

    Start downsizing now for the move. It will give you something to do and focus on. Maybe you can sell things you don’t need or want to move on ebay or consignment, or look into renting storage for your furniture etc that you want to keep while living with your parents. Put the house up for sale – if you can sell it, even just for what you owe on the mortgage, maybe you can stay out of bankruptcy. Good luck, sweetie, if there’s anything I can do, please let me know. ~hugs~

  2. You know the funny things is that I have had the urge to start getting rid of a bunch of shit that is just cluttering my home and my life. Maybe it was a sign of things to come.

    Thank you for your kind words. You mean a lot to me :).

  3. I think that Aunt J’s comments are very right on and insightful. And realistic. Remember that every ending is beginning and vice versa. You don’t KNOW what you are going to do and that’s the downright fuckin’ scary part. But you DO know that you are strong and there are options and that in the end there is some kind of window to open you just don’t know about yet.
    Oh yea and I’d for sure declutter!

  4. Holy fuckballs, woman! To say I had no idea is, well, pathetically obvious. I agree with everything Juicy said, too. It’s not ideal, and it ain’t gonna be all that fun, but sadly you’re joining the masses these days. This country has gone to shit, and so many people I know are in the same exact situation. Most of us are one big hit away from it, so don’t get too down.

    As for DM, you need to somehow let him/make him understand that his work is not EVERYTHING. Guys have a very hard time with that concept. It’s not your fault, and it’s not his fault. It’s the greedy fucks that ruined it for the rest of us that were playing by the rules. Hang in there, girl!

    Oh, and I read all the other posts, too. I like that you’re getting things off your chest!!!!

  5. Good advice here. I agree with Lola, try to make him understand that you don’t see him as his job, since he probably does. I don’t get that about guys but I’ve seen it too many times not to believe it’s very true.

    I’m thinkin’ of ya and sending good thoughts eastward.

    Oh, and, on the upside, this kind of thing is hard with older kids, but it will be years before DLM gives a fuck whether you’re on a budget and won’t buy him an ipod for his birthday. Enjoy the age where the box is 100 times more fun than whatever toy was inside of it. :)
