Sorry to hear it, but I suspect this will end up being an opportunity for you and that you will have options.

Ouch. Try not to take it personally. Sounds like it was strictly a financial decision.

Like Michael said, you're in a profession with good job prospects, so you should be okay.

I will say that I thought that I was not stressed by this.... but it has been hard to get to sleep the last couple of nights.... so my body is under stress even if I do not think it is.... but, it will pass... I am a realist and know that there are some things you cannot control....

IIRC, job loss is right up there with marriage and loss of a loved one as one of the big sources of stress. Judging from your posts on financial matters you seem highly competent to me, so I think you should do just fine. But don't kid yourself you wouldn't be human if this didn't cause you some stress and anger.

Best of luck.
