I've been with my company for 13yrs, it may be 14 if I make it to May. Due to reorg. my company in Atlanta is laying off 1000's for people. Everyone will know if they are being severed Friday with a talk with their managers. I think I will be surplussed, it's kind of okay with my because I get a severage package and bonus. my concern is my health insurance, I would like to keep my kaiser insurance for me and the children and hopefully it won't be high. My manager is walking around in an odd personality. his job may be on the line too. The people who work here have hugh salaries 70k-plus. I guess it would affect them more since I don't make that much. I will take a few months off to rest and take care of myself, swimming or something. it's feels so uncomfortable because no one is talking.
This may be my great escape

Good Evening, Hopalong!

I just wanted to applaud you for the great attitude re future layoff possibility!!  No use to raise stress alerts over the layoffs because there is not a thing you can do to prevent it and we all know what a wolf bait stress is for us.  Good that you will have a severance package so you will be able to regroup before making application for employment elsewhere.  YES, do whatever is necessary to keep your insurance.

On another note...late last week you posted concerns about hiatal hernias and intestinal loops; hope you were able to find some relief.

Hi there!

I had a consult with the surgeon and he is basically refusing to do th surgery onthe hernias due to my 10mg prednisone use and my BMI is too high. he said I need to lose about 50 pounds. So I spoke with my PCP on yesterday and he suggested another surgeon, he said the hernias will not go away on their own. basically he was saying, I wouldn't touch you with a 10 foot pole. lol 
If I have a complication before I see the next surgeon, I will just head to the ER and let the pros handle it.
