Round2 Posted January 6, 2009 Share Posted January 6, 2009 I've posted here before under the name of eYuppie, but the system doesn't recognize the name, and I cannot remember the old password. I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I'm a 20-month survivor of Stage IV NSCLC with a met to the brain. The bad news is that on the same day in October, I learned at 8:30 a.m. that there is a new growth about the size of 2 grains of rice on the old lung tumor, and I was fired from my job at 11:00 a.m. My faith is strong that I'm cured of cancer, knowing that there may be bumps on the road. I'm trying hard to keep the stress of the job loss at bay, as I know that stress and anger make for an environment in which cancer can grow. There was a conflict in the office as to how to approach a large deal, and I very strongly voiced my belief that representations and disclosures needed to be made in the face of a superior who wanted the deal to happen no matter what. I know that I did what was the right thing to do, but I cannot get over the injustice of it all, as well as the hurt of betrayal. After the day from hell, I took 8 weeks off to tend to client work and the jerks at the old office, and to prayerfully consider what I really want to do next. I know what I want to do in the next job, but finding it is very difficult in this economy. If anyone has faced a layoff and a recurrence of cancer, and has some advice for me, I'll be most grateful.
