That's hard and I'm sorry to hear that. I have a FlexJobs account, so if you want to check it out and see if there's anything interesting there, I'd be happy to send you the info/contact info for those jobs. Just PM me which jobs/links.

I got laid off a few years ago in the recession caused by the housing market collapse or 9/11 or both.

There simply weren't a lot of high-tech jobs for a couple of years, so I took whatever work I could find. I worked for a caterer, serving and tending bar at functions; I parked cars; I got a couple of very brief consulting gigs; I bought, restored, and sold some watches.

The catering gig often paid pretty well and it was cash. But it was humbling.

Thanks - that was several years ago and I made it through.

RE: The Whispering Thread
My plans for today didn't turn out. In fact they were opposite of everything I hoped the day would bring. Still I'm trying to smile. If only to hide the sadness.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I am putting my house up for sale but if I don't sell it in 2 months I will have to turn it back to the mortgage company and ruin my credit. I will also be homeless.

I am so sorry...
I hope you sell it in time,- do you have friends or family you can stay with? Did you call the mortage people and try to work with them?
