I just found out my husband is going to lose his full time job, along with all of our medical benefits. He said it's sitting in the pit of his stomach like a huge knot.
How well I know that feeling.
He's in his 50's now and has diabetes, so the loss of medical benefits is going to hit us hard, as well as the added stress of him having to start all over again at his age. Even if he does get another full time job--which seem to be hard to come by these days--finding one that doesn't make you pay all your own benefits is going to be hard.
I keep telling myself that this could be the start of something really, really good for us--you know the whole "one door closes and another one opens" b.s.?--and maybe it's time he had a change, but....ugh. Reality bites and I'm scared.
