Omg!

  1. I JUST QUIT MY JOB!!!! Last day is the 11th of October.

    Why can't I feel my fingers? EEEEEEK! I never left a job w/o having one waiting. I'm doing this now so I can focus on school the rest of this semester. I plan on getting a tech position around January or Feb, but I am soooo freaked out right now.

    Any sure cures for panic attack relief?

    This is a good thing right? I've saved, so I'm ok financially -- REALLY tight but ok.

    Oh geesh. I hope I didn't just screw up. UGH!!!

    babynursewannahb,

    You've saved, so this wasn't a rash decision. We all live beyond on our means anyway. It takes getting used to, to settle for less;
    but you can do it. It will be worth it in the end. Remember, it's not forever. Good luck.

    I agree with Motivated, SN, it will be worth it in the end!

    I did the same thing basically, except I have three kids to take care of! My husband of course has a job, but my extra income sure was nice! I had worked since I was 16, now I am 32, so I have never NOT had a job, it is still freaking me out. But we make it. You will do fine!

    Where there's a will, there's always a way. Good luck!

    Thank you, everyone. You're right, I've saved so it wasn't rash...and there sure is a will! Like ashemson, I've worked since I was young (14) and am now 29 so part of it might be just that...the thought of not having a job.

    I don't think I'm going to tell my daughter right away. Her Dad is the kind to not pay child support....I REALLY don't want to deal with a legal battle while I'm still in school. I did that with the divorce last year.

    Phew. I am starting to calm down...a little.
    Thank you so much ((((everyone)))).

    Worse to worse there's always McDonald's! teehee

    I'm thinking of you Alyssa. Believe me, I know what it's like to live paycheck to paycheck. We're still doing it as a matter of fact, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, as there will be for you!
    God bless you girl! Hang in there!

    Thank you Julie, kitamoon. I got a whopping 4 hours of sleep last night so I think I'm thinking clearer now.

    I would still really appreciate and charitable donations of Xanax!


    This is totally off the subject, but doesn't this guy --> look like groucho marx? I have a hard time seeing anything else when his glasses go up! :chuckle:

    Alyssa, changes like this are always scary! Sounds like you made the best decision though...now you can concentrate on school and a tech position will be great experience. Panic attack cures? Visualize success...seeing is believing!!!
