Life keeps being interesting. After being out of work for a week due to the acute asthma and treatment with prednisone, I was back this week. Thursday, my partner was let go from his job. I flipped but on the inside (see: pretending to be a functional human being). I kept it together enough to finish my work day. I was able to vent with a couple of friends. He has enough of a severance package that we aren’t going to be homeless quite yet. Plus he has skills and experience that are in demand.
I am hopeful something new will come along. I’m just worried that it will take time we don’t have. We are still recovering from a few difficult years so do not have a cushion. We both need continuing health care coverage so that is scary as well. There will be a gap unless COBRA has gotten less expensive with the ACA which I doubt.
I am trying to keep hope. My partner would be a huge asset to any company. It’s just a matter of convincing him of that fact. And then getting his foot in the door somewhere. I don’t even care if we have to move again. Heck, going back to NC would be a boon for me. I have a real in-person support system there. I don’t see us going back to AZ but that too would be fine with me. He has been thriving here so here is where the job search will focus. I will cope. I have to.
