    The government of Puerto Rico has fired 22,000 employees and I'm one of them, I just don't know what to do, lost the will to live.

    On the bright side, you could take home whatever you want and nobody would be the wiser. :shifty:

    Seriously, good luck to you.

    My best wishes to you in your loss. The sense of unknown can be very powerful.

    The depression, anger, and dread you feel are very normal. Be careful you don't do something in the moment which affects the rest of your life. Review the job sites out there, the severance benifits including retraining you might be entitled to, and move forward. You have the support of your friends here and what ever other networks you might have formed. Use them, perhaps they have leads you have not thought about.

    Hang in there, my friend!

    Brother I am sorry to hear this. i know how you feel as I went through the same thing. Need to keep the fire burning inside, and start looking for a new job right away. I know the feeling, but you have to prop yourself back, and know in your heart that it isn't you, times are just tough. I wish you the very best. Keep the faith!:wink2:

    Very sorry to hear this bro.

    Lots of good info and thoughts already in here. As mentioned we will give you all the moral you could ever need.

    Times are tough, but that just means its time to hustle to better your opportunities.

    There are quite a few good job networking sites on the net. Spend time in them and hopefully something good will come from it.

    Don't worry Be Happy...doesnt have the same ring to it anymore, I suspect....but you should be happy you are in a beautiful location to find a new opportunity.
