My Mixed Up Life - Part 2

Published on 8/21/2014

    Been awhile since I wrote something. Been busy with the summer as most of us are.


    Went on a nice vacation with my family and about a week from returning we learned that this may be our last vacation for quite awhile. My husbands company just decided to close and only gave a 4 day notice. 


    It was heart breaking and a big blow since he is the only income earner. I work at home but I am not rich or making any where near what we need to survive. 


    It is hard for me to work with having a son with Autism. I had to leave an 11 year job ,where I met my husband and had a family, when it started to get very difficult for us to raise our sons. They are 20 months apart and when we learned our second son had Autism when he was 2 things slowly went down hill. 


    We had to resign from the company after the owner asking me how it could be so hard to take care of our son cause he just sits there.


    I couldn't work for this company anymore. Neither one of us could. It was hard to sit at my computer and focus on my work without starting to cry. I was running red lights and not realizing I did until I was through it. It was getting rough. 


    When I was at my unemployment appeal and having the Human Resource worker which had been like family to me fight really hard for me not to get my unemployment it was breaking my heart. These people where family to us and they knew how much we cared about our jobs and the company. 


    I had mentioned that the owner had said some things that really hurt me during a meeting we had and I couldn't believe that after all these years and everything I have done for them when I am in need now they want to fight me. She said the owner did not have a mean bone in his body and then I asked her if that were true why would he ask me why it was so hard to care for our son when he justs sits there. The  unemployment case worker asked me if that is why I quit my job and she replied for me and said no and I have just kicked myself ever since. I might have received my unemployment if I would have just said yes. 


    I really could have sued this company for some many different things but I cared to much and just moved on. I loved my job and everyone I worked with. 


    My husband went to a 5 year truck driving career which proved very hard on the family and on him. We decided we had to do something better and we decided to take the home equity in the home we were inheriting and open up a Gaming Center/T-Shirt Shop. It was most exciting and lots of fun. The country went into a slump and people were no longer sending children to play games versus a loaf of bread on the table. After a few years we could no longer run the place with the bills piling up and had to close. It was doing well at one time. 


    It was heartbreaking and gut wrenching. We are still paying the loan back to this day and fighting to make the payment. It has been tough but I made sure every payment was made even when my husband was unemployed for a few months.


    After working numerous jobs to find what was right for us he happened to find a job on Craigslist that was the best thing to happen to us since the day our children were born. He found a job that payed us 2 incomes and we had this for about 5 years. Although it wasn't a lot of money it still paid our bills and we were paying the loan on time each month. I was able to have money to pay for my online businesses. Things were looking up.


    Well now we are back to the drawing board and worried more now than ever. We just bought a home last year and our truck is working great but hopefully for long. My husbands company supplied him with a vehicle. Now he will have to use ours. He was a Home Preservation Tech for Banks and took care of houses that were owned by the banks and not occupied. 


    He is looking into going into business for himself now. A few guys from the company have already opened their own companies while working at this company and are advising my husband to not settle for working for someone else. 


    I also refuse to work for someone else and only want to be here for my son and teach him how to make it in this society. He doesn't speak and he is 13 and very frustrated. Wants to talk but can't. Can't tell us what he wants and it takes awhile to realize his needs. 


    I know we will get through this just like we always have. I am happy to be online with so many positive friends.
