#SoCs September 15th: Post

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “post.” Use it as a word, or find a word that uses it as a prefix. Have fun!
***
Post. Four little letters. But oh so important when you blog. Writing a post, the important bit of blogging. Making that first post is always hard, but once you do it, once you get started, you never look back. At least, thats how it was for me.

I love my blog. I love writing posts. I love the interactions with other readers. I love it all. I am so so glad I started blogging. It has really changed my life in so many great ways.

Whether its a post about cooking or a recipe, a quote, a general life update, a post about therapy, or my psychiatrist apts, all of my posts mean something to me. All of them are special to me. I hope they mean something to others too.

Its so wonderful when other writers read my posts and comment and or like them. I get a buzz every time I see a like or comment come through. I never stop getting that buzz. I love it.

Well I’ll catch yall later guys! Happy reading!

Thank you all for sticking with me. I hope my posts inspire you or make you think. I hope my journey isn’t in vein. I don’t think it is though. So many of you have either written me privately, commented on here, liked my posts, etc. I am so grateful for that.

Friendly call

I’m in the middle of my shift on friendly call. So far its going good. I have a list of about 30 people to call. I’m almost through with the list now. Most of the people were in today and were able to talk. I had a good chat with some, while others didnt really want to talk and just stayed on the line for about 2 minutes. There were two who really effected me today. One woman has COPD and hasnt been out of her house in over 2 years. She was feeling very down today. She kept apologising to me for being so negative. I told her it was ok and I told her if I was in her position I’d probably be negative too, in fact I know I would be! She said she was finding it hard to sleep at night lately because she cant breath good. The poor woman! That must feel awful. I know what panic attacks are like and their horrible, so imagine having COPD where you literally cant breath! Awful! The other woman who really impacted me today was a lady who said that she was feeling very lonely. She said the weekend had been very long and she felt very isolated and lonely during it. It was heartbreaking to listen to her. I wanted to rush to her side and hug her. Loneliness is a killer. Its the worst feeling in the world, I know, have been there a lot of times over the years. I am taking a little bit of a break now before I continue with the calls. I need a little break, a cup of coffee and a few minutes to just regroup. Then I will be able to go on with the calls. Also, Liz told our supervisor Brenda about Jennifer, the girl who was on with us last week on friday, who didnt make many calls, and only stayed on the phone with clients a minute or two when she did ring them, the few that she did call I mean. We told Brenda we think its ridiculous and she said she’d talk to her. She also told us that that is why she has put us on duty on Friday afternoons now, is because she knows Jennifer isnt doing the work properly. So at least we said something to her now, I feel better having spoken up about it.
