I am more of a reader than poster, but just really need to offload right now.
Today I found out my secure job of 12 years with the Qld state government is no more and my position will be transitioned into the private sector.
I am worried sick as my job role in the private sector pays significantly less and shift arrangements are not compatible with my custody arrangements. So I will need to find another job. I know I am going to struggle to find a job that pays as well as the one I have now and I worry I won't be able pay my financial commitments, mortgage and provide for my daughter.
My townhouse has dropped in value since I bought and I have a fixed rate mortgage. If I was to sell, I would gain some serious debt and throw away all I've worked so hard for.
Today I was feeling ok about it and thinking that this is an opportunity for change and that things will work out. But tonight it's hit real hard and I have been a sobbing mess.
I am independent and have spent the last few years gaining confidence that I can provide for myself and my girl. But it's times like this that being single sux and I wish I had someone to share the burden with. Sometimes it just feels so hard to face this stuff alone :-(

Hi I'm sorry about your situation. I am also with the QLD govt and unsure of what the future holds...You sound like you will bounce back just fine, make sure you focus on your transferable skills and start looking for work asap.
