The following is not an allergy post....

Well, my friends, it looks like I will now have ample time to write to you. I was laid off this week. I'm angry, I'm frightened, and I'm now a statistic in this fantastic economy.

Rather than mope (too much), I am attempting to search for the good in this. All I've been saying for the last 6 months is how I've had writer's block, and would like more time to write. So my question to you is this, can anyone point me in the direction of some freelance work? I write, I edit, and I am incredible on paper (if I do say so myself). I've been laid off for 48 hours and already submitted two articles for publication. Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, I am going to do the unthinkable. LEARN TO RELAX (no laughing, you family members reading this!!)....we'll see if the adage about the old dog actually holds...

Your allergic diner

With hands crossed maybe learning to meditate would work.

I realize that your blog deals primarily with food allergies, but why not help out some people in the bloggy world that may be in the same boat? Maybe a tutorial about how to write a great cover letter or resume.

Just a thought.

2 comments...both left by "anonymous", and yet i'm positive I know both of you... Meditation is for people who don't like kickboxing/running. And I've actually published a couple articles re: tutorial resume/cover letter...maybe I'll give up my anonymity and link to them at some point.
Thank you both for thinking of me :)

Hey AD,
Sorry to hear about your recent news. Even though it's quite common nowadays, that doesn't detract from the suckiness of the situation. Yes, suckiness.
Good luck with everything, and I'll keep my eyes and ears open for you.

Thanks, PK. And suckiness is a fantastic word!
