My husband just got notice that he will be laid off after tomorrow. His mill filed chapter 11 last Thursday and if they don't find a buyer by July 28th, may close completely. He is very upset, we are not spring chickens anymore and the thought of finding and starting a new job is daunting . Thank goodness I am still working and that his insurance benefits will continue.
A few days ago, due to a bed issue, my son was moved to a different facility where they don't have phones in the rooms for us to call. They gave him back his cell phone which of course is dead and he called asking whether we would be willing to prepay some texting and minutes for him. I said no immediately, knowing all of the wonderful phone contacts he has in it. He was not a happy camper about that.
He called his dad last night and spoke with him about it. His dad told him he supported my decision but we would talk about it some more and let him know if we change our minds. He pointed out that he can still call us and his sponsor through his therapist.
He will be coming home very soon since he is almost at the end of his IOP and the next step there, the halfway house, is totally out of the question since his dad is going to be out of a job. Insurance will not cover the rent.
I am having a great deal of anxiety on every front at the moment. I feel like the air is being squeezed out of my chest and I find myself drifting away from the good behaviors and thoughts I have been practicing these past couple of months.
Higher Power, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference....... now more than ever.
Have a great weekend everyone.
