    Well, I just got laid off along with another co-worker (in the same room and at the same time). My grandpa died in Feb., my dad died in Apr. and my mom died in Nov.

    I'm trying to stay positive, I'm relatively young and healthy so I'm looking to bounce back sometime Q1 next year. Also happy I was frugal and saved up for times like this. Well, time to polish the resume and apply for unemployment.

    Sorry for such a downer thread during the holiday season and thanks for reading.

    Oh man, I was half expecting to see some first-world problem like someone's ipod got scratched to constitute a "horrible" year. But my heart sincerely goes out to you. Stay strong, things have to get better.

    Sad to hear :( 
    Wish you all the best. It can't rain all the time. There will be better times. Maybe not tomorrow, or next week. Just don't wait for it, when it's time, you will know.

    I lost my job this year, but that's nothing compared to the trouble you went through. I mean, yikes! You have all my sympathies, Sonscreen. I wish you all the best this Christmas. *huggles*

    Wow man, sorry to hear.

    I can definitely empathize with you, though. This year between my wife and I we've had a very close friend's daughter die, two grandpa's die, a grandma get moved into a home, another grandma take a massive downturn in her health, 3 good friends all between 35-45 be diagnosed with breast cancer, my sister possibly having breast cancer(still waiting on results), another grandma waiting on heart surgery, and numerous other health problems among family and friends.

    2012 can fuck itself.

    Good luck to you, keep your head up. :eek:

    sorry about your luck man, you have my well wishes.

    look at it this way - you're still alive and healthy, and when you're down the only way to go is up. that may be a bit cliche but i really hope you take it to heart. if you need to talk i've got your back.

    No need to apologize, that's why this forum is here. You know lots of TFW folks are willing to listen, suggest and support other members in good times and bad...especially the bad times.

    Sonscreen so sorry to hear that 2012 has been such a lousy year, you'll have tons of hopes and prayers for a much better 2013. Best of luck in the new year.

    I am very sorry for all your losses and hopefully next year will be better.

    We're all pulling for you, if you need to talk or write we're here.

    I honestly won't do anything with your resume, I would go to the temp agency, they will interview you, look at your resume, tell you if your resume needs improving, and they will give you some ideas.

    Lastly, not to sound corny, but I think some bereavement counseling would do some good for you before you go back to work.

    You can get some free bereavement counseling. I think you should go or at least think about going.

    Well now I'm looking back at my year in better light.

    Sorry to hear you've had such a horrible year. I guess you won't be minding the end of the world in a few weeks.
