I have not had a steady job since early in 2005 due to my mental illness. I have been on disability and not worked at all since 2007. Two weeks ago, I returned from a long trip across many time zones and started working part-time as a certified peer specialist intern within two days.
I have trained for the position, and the internship is shaping up to be a good one. However, I have to inform my readers that I’m exhausted. It leaves me drained. After the first few days on the job, I found myself sleeping ten-hour nights.
I want so much to write about the job, but I’m rebuilding my stamina at this point. I hope you will show me patience. I will return to regular writing as soon as possible.
