Hi Susan, with the "worldwide" recession still with us - we are sometimes forced in making a career change. The secret to surviving these days is being "flexible" and being willing to learn new skills. I have been able to survive in spite of being 55 and laid off since 2008. What helped me was Nicholas Lore's book "The Pathfinder" - maybe you could feature him on your site. He also runs the Rockport Institute which has an AWESOME "Career Change" program. Love your article! Thanks, Angela J. Shirle

The person that came up with this hairbrained concept needs to get out in the REAL world for a while to work and live. I put up with "career anxiety" for 14 LONG, MISERABLE years with a boss that that was (and still is) so crazy and annoying to her employees they'll probably have to invent new psychological illnesses to explain her one day. Putting up with this "anxiety" for that long basically ruined my health. By the time I left I had already developed fibromyalgia and several other medical problems so badly that I'm now considering applying AGAIN for disability. I completely and totally feel that if I hadn't had the stress of this crazy boss along with an idiot boyfriend for 5 of those that I would be a completely different and much healthier person today at 52. Folks, if you have stress and anxiety in your job every day, to the point where it's a miserable dread to go everyday, then run like hell. In the end it could literally mean your health to you.
