Default Unemployment Blues

Two years ago, I was laid off from the print production manager job I'd had for nine years. It took me almost 6 months to find another job, which paid $10K less than I'd been making before.

A couple of weeks ago, I was laid off from that job. Yikes!! What does an almost 50-year-old print production artist with some web production experience do about finding a full-time job, with benefits, in this horrible economic climate?

My husband is self-employed, so losing health benefits is a very serious concern. His business--he is a professional photographer--is suffering, too. There will come a time when paying the rent will be a struggle, once our savings is gone. Depressing.

I'm guessing that there are others here who are in the same boat. Tell me what you're doing to stay sane!
