Look at the bright side

This is probably not what you want to hear right now, but, maybe there will be some positive unintended consequence. Its possible you may find more/higher paying work elsewhere. Here's an idea, post on craigslist or angie'slist whatever skills you have. Maybe even start your own business where you visit people's homes/work and wash/perform maintenance on their vehicles. You could even go door to door (remember to pick the right neighborhoods) offering your services, with a background story of what exactly happened to you. Remember there are still many people on the government dole who have cash, and are willing to drop $20, $40, or even $100's of dollars for a car wash/detailing. Best of luck, I'm sure you will be fine, you are one of us!
