My BF just got laid off
Isn't it a wonderful time to get the news?? 2 days before Thanksgiving!! I am so upset right now. I'm so depressed and my stomach is in knots. I don't know how we will get through. I don't really make enough on my job alone.

I'm praying for you Evona.

I don't want to sound rude or anything, but please remember you have him. He may not have a job, but you have each other.

I know how hard it can be to deal with things like this during the holidays. My mom has MS. Last thanksgiving she was deathly ill. She almost died on thanksgiving day. She even started trying to give me her last wishes. It was so scary. So I know how hard things during the holidays can be. :(
((hugs)) and prayers for you and yours.

I know it's tough, but you'll get through it! My husband was fired from his job (boss got rid of every single male employee that was working there, go figure.) a few weeks ago and I was sobbing for a couple days because it's so stressful. He got a job two weeks ago making more money and getting more hours.

You just need to hope for the best! You'll pull through.

Wow! My boyfriend got laid off too!

I'm sure you'll survive, give him a little while to get his emotions together and he can get back out there and find another

Just keep a positive additude and you guys will figure things out
