how long does it take to get an unemployment check?

I truly understand what you mean about working in a stressful environment getting ill. Gee, walking everyday thinking this would be my last day after witnessing so many people getting let go. So I set up a game plan for me. The job went from a place of support to a place of mental torture. But I chose to change my life. I wish you well from recovering from mental drama. This takes alot out of a person and everyone's situation is different .  (Mar 8, 2013 | post #299)

Yes, this process of waiting for your money can be frustraing and lack of jobs. We can get upset over the people who gave up , collecting their money. Iam not mad at them. I'd saved in advance, downgraded my lifestyle, paying off or selling things , after seeing people in my old job getting fired for petty mess, who have been there a long time and feeling sick from all the high stress. This was the best thing to happened to me. I rested for a week from working every shift under the sun. I'd decided to go back to school to learn something different and collect my money due to me. I felt weird in school at first, after working half my life and dealing with youngsters old enough to be my kids, turned into the sweetest voices of encourqement through out this process. I was told by the unemployment about job training and certain schools are approved. One is eligible for a certain period of time to collect. Frankly, could'nt see myself staying home doing nothing to help myself. The one thing learned so far, one is never too old to start again. I am still struggling to a certain extent , but I don't feel sick anymore. I hope my testimony helps at least one person.  (Mar 8, 2013 | post #298)
