    Re: Made redundant today - upset but trying to be positive

    Thank You everyone for all the lovely replies. I am going to sit and go through them all again and will then reply more.

    You are all right - it is only a job and I can find something else and at the moment it is shock that has upset me and the unknown.

    Failing that Alex has suggested several new careers for me which seem to include pole dancing for some reason

    Nicola you do a fabulous job here. As others have said "one door closes - another opens" - just take some time out for yourself for a while and then look to the future.

    Really sorry to hear your news Nic-just try and keep positive-apparently everything happens for a reason so maybe it is the right time for the next chapter in your life.

    I did pole dancing lessons for a few months to try and get fit and you end up covered in bruises all over your legs............so if you like wearing short skirts I would say that pole dancing isnt the career for you! Or learn how to do it before the summer so you can cover your legs up whilst it is cold!!

    Re: Made redundant today - upset but trying to be positive

    Hi Nic,

    Sorry to hear about your redundancy, I have been through this recently. I got laid off in the same week of Christmas! I knew for 3 months and another staff got redundant too, and was told to leave within a week and also I was the lucky one who got to stay on until Christmas. My situation is difficult than yours because I am disabled, and I was stressed when I found out that other jobs are about to be cut somewhere else. I feel sorry for these people.

    I felt shocked, anger and it brought on panic attacks and anxiety for a while. I imagined my future would be staying at home alot and arguing with my family and being bored. Now I have accepted my redundancy and I am taking things easy, and am trying to keep myself busy, and I'm sure you will find some skills and talents, that you can put to good use.

    Good luck and hope to hear some good news from you soon! I know how it feels. I heard there will be more cuts coming up in March. It will be hard to find jobs now. Fingers crossed for us!!!

    Starry xx

    So sorry to hear your news, Nic, been there and it's horrible, particularly when health issues limit your options. I hope things work out well for you

    PS, you are entitled to a limited period of contributions-based Jobseekers Allowance (up to 182 days, I just checked) on the basis of your NI contributions regardless of what anyone else earns.
