*panic, panic, hyperventilating*
My doctor-boss just told us that we're shutting down the practice as of April 30th. We originally had until the end of October, then the end of September, but now it's the end of April.
He's been doing this for 48 years, and he's just too damned tired to keep going like this. I understand, but I don't know what to do! I've never applied for a job before (got this one by default when my sister quit) and I only have a GED. I will have had 26 years of experience by the time we close down, but I don't want to do medical billing anymore!
I'm scared. I'm hoping for the best, but I'm scared.
I hope to God that finding a new job isn't as overwhelmingly stressful as getting my house was. I don't know if I can go through that kind of stress again!
wish I had seen this earlier
but have been so crushed over my recent loss have been hiding ... even though it may not look that way
FIRST >>>>>> breathe !!!
being scared is okay ... as is everything else you are feeling
do not let this undermine you and who you are ... is normal to feel lessened by these events
it is not unlike having a death in your life ... so if you can >> google stages of grieving as it may help.
you are still a young'un !!
wish I could say that I was 41 and not be lying my azzzzz off !!!!
you have mad skills >>> look at all you do in here and, do damn well
maybe this is an opportunity to re-evaluate all you can do .. with what you want really want to do .... while still being financially stable
in the meantime .. feel what you are feeling ... do not block off as will resurface and bite you in the azz when you least expect it !!
you still have 3 1/2 months of income plus severance ... to come in
but ... tighten the belt a bit ....
you are a strong, highly intelligent, resourceful, multitalented lady ...
with a great instinct for many things esp dealing with problems (nuisances like me as an example)
you have an innate kindness and an intuitive understanding of people and situations that cannot be learned
perhaps people ... not figures .. are a strength as of yet untapped
keep us posted
you know we all have your back
and will listen ...
