I lost the unemployment battle :(

Formerly Carley... For those who know, I had an over the phone hearing with unemployment and found out I lost last Monday... I've been fighting with them and my former employer for 3 months...not gonna get into it, but thank you all for your support in this matter.
I took it hard, cried, was depressed and sad. My boyfriend was so supportive it was unbelieveable. I've only had a $200 a month income from child support the last 3 months.

My boyfriend's grandma also died the same day. Needless to say, we've had a rough week.

Re: I lost the unemployment battle :(

I'm so so sorry for this! Is there any chance of an appeal or is it a done deal?

I went through that with unemployement back in 2001. I ended up having to pay back what they had giving me. Lucky me they never sent a bill showing how much to pay each month. Just one wanting payment...So I gave them $5.00 a month for 10 years. Now they stopped giving me the bill probably because their time to collect is past due. Last June I started being a stay at home mom and have not sent them anything. I have not heard anything either...So if you have to send unemployement money do as small as you can. I am in VA. Don't know how it works where u are but probably the same.

Sorry to hear this. :-(

Nothing more frustrating than when justice is not served.

Re: I lost the unemployment battle :(

I'm so sorry to hear this! So, is this it - I mean - are their options for you to appeal their decision? This was for unemployment, correct? What about disability - I remember mentioning something about that before but I don't recall if that's an option for you. Things will work out - it will just take a plan and some support. We can help you with those things!!!!!

The worst part of these things is the waiting and the distraction. Now you know where you stand. I wish you strength for your fight,

Re: I lost the unemployment battle :(

Massiri-

I get child support for my oldest daughter, that has been my only income for the last 3 months since losing my job.

And yes I can appeal... strange as it sounds, and as much as I've b****** about it, I'm not going to.

I applied, it got denied. I appealed. It got denied. Had a phone hearing, it got denied... I fought the war 3 times and lost. I just don't have it in me anymore.

I'm going to just keep applying for work. I can work when I'm medicated ( so my old pdoc says) but honestly I'm not sure I can. I don't know if it's just the other issues we are facing that has my mind all messed up ( meaning I'm going to screw up at another job if I get one, thinking about all these problems at work) or if I truly just cant work.

I see the new psyche on Monday... I'm hoping to add a stimulant to help me focus and hope he allows me to continue the non stimulant med I'm on for ADD.

This company did me wrong and they got away with it. To all of you who have supported me during this,
