I lost my job on Monday.

The entire creative team at my agency was eliminated during a conference call with top brass. The bad part is, we were contractors. I took the gig in the height of the recession, it paid well, and I was very thankful for a well-paying job. Now I'm not qualified for unemployment, since I was a contractor, and I am freaking. out. I've been there for three-plus yrs. My partner keeps telling me to look on the bright side - use the time to reflect on what I really want to do! Enjoy the time off! (I never, ever take time off.) Easy to say, but the income was helpful to say the least. I feel sick and scared.
