I'd actually been doing.....not well, but better the last while. After nearly a year off work I found a job at what I thought would be a good company, I started digging myself out of the financial hole I was in, and I had managed to better deal with the end of a relationship I really didn't want to end. There had been a couple of dark spots over the past 18 months, but I thought things were turning around. Then, amongst a myriad of other crap, the new employer started cutting hours, taking swipes at employees over really stupid crap in a bid, I suspect, to keep us down. And I just found out we're looking at a further reduction in hours including some 3 and 2 day weeks. I'm sitting here with $200 in the bank, a mortgage payment due on Monday, and I find myself in a very familiar place, just wishing it was all over. Having decided on the means should that day come, if I had the tools at my disposal it would be over. Seriously, does the roller coaster ride ever end?
