health care volunteer here

and while i believe in it, it's straining me. i have my own crises. my home business is failing, i need a real job. but my contacts keep requesting, begging, manipulating volunteers to do more. it's like working for a temp agency, but with no pay.

1. You need to take care of yourself first, otherwise you can't keep helping others very well.

That old airplane announcement:
Parents, first put on your own oxygen masks, and then help your children.

There are a lot of needy people - some are really in need but many want the attention and additional caring. We can't serve everybody that asks.

Please take a respite. Take a step back, talk to someone outside of this immediate environment. And take care of yourself.

And report back. Please!
