This will probably sound odd! I am retired, aged 67, and find socialising difficult unless I'm with people with a shared interest - one of which is fancy (pet) rats. Just over a year ago I took over as acting Show Secretary. The club with which I am associated uses a very interesting computer program and I've found taking entries and much of it really interesting.
On the other side, I have to arrange judges, which is becoming almost impossible, and we have a major problem with 'internal politics' which contributes to my depression.
I officially resigned from being Show Secretary after this month, primarily because of two areas - the near-impossibility of getting judges, and the bullying, manipulation and 'politics' which go on, especially with one person. Recently, we have failed to make star shows twice - which is the great spur to entry. Some of our members regularly have understandable financial problems, while another is getting more commissions for art work which take her time.
I really don't know what to do. I'm also struggling with this hot weather and physical problems - but I hope these should improve by October.
