Downsized

Both physically and employedly.  Is that a word?  Well either way, my company let me go today and I am officially unemployed.  It was a mass downsizing and I fell on the wrong side of the sword.

Oh AJ! Didn't you just move there for that job? Maybe this means that you can go where your guy is? At least that would be a positive, right?

Would you like me to go kick them for you? I totally will!

First I'd like to say that I've been keeping up with your blog because I am having RNY in exactly two weeks and you've been a remarkable comfort to me (especially because we are nearly the same age and I, too, am a Midwestern girl - Missouri, to be exact... as well as a staunch Obama supporter.) I've been a silent observer to this point, but I just had to say how sorry I am about your job. There's no getting around the fact that being unemployed when you were not planning to be unemployed sucks, but you are clearly so very intelligent and resourceful and someone out there (despite the shambles of this economy) is going to be thrilled to snag you. In my personal experience, these things eventually turn out for the best - you end up getting another job that you love a lot more, or you make a move you wouldn't have otherwise. And for f*ck's sake, get thee to an unemployment office! -Sarah

Hello-- I came upon your site when I googled "gastric bypass and postsecret." I have a similar experience with WLS blogged on my web. I even was "downsized" and wrote about it...uncanny. Would love to talk... Hang in there, sweetie! -Emily
