Oh, Brea, I'm sorry that you are having such a rough time. Would it help to give us more details? Not so that we could "fix" you, or tell you that you are wrong, but so that we can sympathize with you and so you won't feel so alone. As a 47yo mother of 2 teen boys I might not be in the same life place as you right now, but maybe I was or maybe (almost certainly) someone else is.

Take care, Buffy

I just joined yesterday. I am type 1 since age 2, I am now 38 years old. My son now 3 was diagnosed at age 2 also. I AM SO ANGRY, GRIEVING, UPSET, .. If it weren't for my husband I would not be able to help my son. And now, I can't seem to be able to get out of this mental lock of despair and anger. I cry once a day and can't sleep during the night. Then at 6am cant bare get up to get going.
I am rambly..... upset...

I am seeing a therapist, but this past 2 weeks have been bad.

Kevin, I am so sorry to learn of your finance's death. Do you have a support system? You need to be able to work through this. Do you see a therapist? I hope that you are. You are always going to miss her but it will get easier to bear.

Well, Nikki H, I'm an unemployed Human Resource professional. lol If I can tell you anything, is that by law, they have to consider and interview all the most qualified applicants for the position that applied during the time the position was posted, or else it would be considered discriminatory, and it would come to light during an Affirmative Action report. So, while they may have made up their minds about you, they still have to talk to the other people. :) You can: give them a call to see how the process is going, and when should you expect to hear from them; or send them a thank you card, thanking them for their time. :) Best of luck, keep the hope up, and keep on looking... We're in the same boat. lol
