Dear Oppo,

First and foremost, thank you all who left me kind words last Wednesday. The last few days have been rough AF, but this morning I was ready to move forward. Unfortunately, the last 5 days took a toll on my sleep, social, and eating habits — the one positive is that I lost almost 6 pounds since the day my position was eliminated. The rest was ~28 hours of sleep, barely eating once a day, finding whatever what would hold my attention on YouTube, and leaving the house once to pick up 2 pizzas (BOGO), cheesebread, and apple tart from Donatos since the will to cook anything was nil. So when I tried to start working on my resume and get my printer’s inkjets cleaned this morning, I hit the wall. Very hard. The previous 5 days decided that today was a big fat NOPE.


Yes, it sucks. But it’s not the end of the world. I know this because I really, really want to get myself going again today. The fact that everytime I try to do anything for more than 10 minutes, I become fatigued and dizzy and have to stop and rest. And yet I still keep trying to do something. See, positive signs!

I’m going to get things in order by 5pm EST Tuesday.

That is my goal and I am sticking to it.

I will get up to do something, anything before it gets too late in the day today.

Even typing this was draining, but I wanted and needed to do it.

This shows my will power is strong.

But OMFG I seriously need to go to bed early tonight!!! :)

P.S.:  Just to clear things up, my former employer wasn’t Boeing -- it was a Tier 1 supplier.  On second thought, I think it would be best to call it a Tier 1.5 since the manufacturing process that we did was in direct support of a true Tier 1 supplier as part of a contractual joint venture.
