Non-compete at the point of resignation??

I recently decided to resign from my employment for famiy reasons, but also some internal personnel issues. I expressed my desire, though I did not submit a formal letter of resignation. I asked for 2 months of severance, unused vacation, and medical benefits for 4 months as I have held an administrative position for 18 years. Now I'm being told I must sign an extremely broad non-compete that prevents me from working in my field at all, anywhere, for 3 years! They want an immediate Inow!)answer- it was presented to me just a few days ago.

Do not sign a non-compete at this time, particularly if you are trying to negotiate a severance package. Please feel free to email me or call. I am happy to assist.
