The thing with doing what I do is that when I have a really bad day, I can't really tell you about it. I can tell you that the day was really bad, but I feel like laying out there any sort of explanation is a breach of confidentiality.
So let us just say that it was a bad day, with one particular call that rattled the whole office. (No, I'm not on hotline, but sometimes people call the office instead of the hotline, so we do get calls from people in crisis.) Yesterday, too.
I am very fortunate in my friends. My BARCC friend D. pulled me out of yesterday's tailspin and had be laughing via Gchat by the time he had to leave work. mangosteen
hauled me out of today's. I am thankful.
I need to find balance so I won't require rescue. Thankful as I am that rescue is available, I need to not *need* it on a regular basis.
And yes, I still totally love my job. It is awesome. I am Getting Stuff Done, and today I put the finishing touches on the volunteer training that starts tomorrow. Big project conquered. 10 points to Ravenclaw!
And more musing tomorrow when I'm not about to fall asleep.
