    It was good advice.. can't handle the heat.. get out of the kitchen.
    Or, as in the title of your thread, forced out to pasture!

    I can relate. A little over a year ago, my case manager position at a SNF was abruptly eliminated, with no warning. It felt like a gut punch at the time because my MENTOR, the Director of my division, didn't call me, text me, email me. NOTHING.

    I spent a week or so having myself a bit of a pity party...then went job hunting. I eventually found my current position in school nursing and I LOVE it. I believe things happen for a reason. Looking back, I am glad I was "downsized" and I wouldn't give this job up for my old one for any amount of money.

    I believe good things will happen for you. In the meantime (((hug))) hang in there!

    I've recently been "down-sized" too. I'm still in the same position, doing the same work ... but for fewer hours per week. I like the additional time off, and am close enough to retirement that I am not going to seek another full-time job. I'll just get by with a smaller paycheck for the last few years of my career.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. It always hurts to lose a job even when you know that it has nothing to do with you workmanship and it's their way of cutting costs. You seem to be taking this pretty well. With your attitude and experience, I'm pretty certain that you will find something better very soon.

    No, not that issue. Company is hemorrhaging from the government changes to Obama care, they need to cut staff in general.

    Trump, messing with Obama care. Insurance companies are scrambling to survive. They need to cut costs. Us old farts are the first to go.

    Thanks but... corporate health care ... is not known for their wisdom . They are known for caring for the bottom line.
