I was fine.

I just went into the office to turn in my laptop and to clean out my pc's file. As I started deleting my email files, from, oh, 1997, I started sobbing.

A few friends of mine, d & l, sat with me even though I was a mess. Good boys.

When it was time to leave, I made no grand exit. No big email saying goodbye. When people wanted to walk out with me, I politely refused, asking if I could just walk out alone. They complied.

I told my coworker, e, that I was to turn everything into him and I had, but "i'm not giving you my badge. you can fight me for it.". He gave no argument.

I just made it home and promptly threw up.

Oh hon! I'm so sorry!!! I was able to go in on my own on a saturday - much easier with no one around. Of course I worked for an uber small company & could just leave the key & stuff on the receptionists desk.

What a hard thing to go through. I'm gla dyou had some support there, but I totally understand wanting to walk out alone.

I'll give you a text later on today to see if you want to chat- it's been a while & I miss you!
xoxoxo

I'm so sorry. I can't imagine what it would feel like to be forced out of a company after spending so many years with them. Only that it would be so hard.
