The realisation of it all

Don't feel much better today, in fact a little worse, I am forcing myself to go to my appointment in respect of taking on some voluntary work.

I am realising as days go by that I am not well, somehow I've questioned it before, and still do I guess.

If I make arrangements (which is rare) I have to keep them and I've made an appointment for this morning so I have to go, but truly don't feel like, I'm talking myself out of doing voluntary work today, but I know I have to, I will end up in my bedroom and never meet anyone or go anywhere, it's something I must do to get better.....

It's lovely and sunny out there today, maybe I will feel better when I go out....right now I feel awful...

Sleepless, I did voluntary work inbetween career moves and I loved it. Most of the other volunteers have problems and everyone understands you need to take things at your own pace. I started off doing 2 days a week, moved up to 5 and they offered me a paid job. It was just what I needed and although some days I felt sick to the stomach about going, once I got there it took my mind of things and I felt a great deal of satisfaction helping others.

Good luck x
