I've had a sudden hideous surge of work-anxiety over the coming Sun layoffs. I had been grimly resigned to doom previous to this -- I feel that we have three people doing two people's work right now and I'm the least senior of the three -- but feeling fairly calm about it. Now I've suddenly got that vacuum feeling in my stomach I haven't felt for ages.
I somewhat chilled out by looking over the RIF compensation plan and reassuring myself that I can last at least six months with what I've got, which even in this economy should be enough time to get another job.
But I want this to be over, I want to know, I want to stop worrying and analyzing every remark by my boss to try to ken my fate.
