Losing your job is a very stressful situation. Especially if you have been working for the same company for many years. “The profound sense of dislocation people feel immediately after a layoff is to be expected. As are a number of other feelings: anger, sorrow, anxiety, frustration and fear. All of these reactions to a layoff or closure are completely normal.” The Surviving a Layoff book, available through your local WIN Job Center, (p. 4-7) offers great suggestions to help you, and your family, cope with the changes you are facing.
