Hi everyone. So I'm LCW. I have been recovering from an injury & complications but I still have a way to go, don't know how all THAT will go. Anyway, I'm starting a 1 day a week volunteer job after 18 months focusing on my recovery - which is ongoing but there has been a lot of progress. It's a sedentary job that doesn't clash with why I'm not in full time work and HOPEFULLY in time might help make me more employable. I am excited! But I am also nervous! I might also have mild anxiety BTW. So I'd just love any tips or encouragement? I'm going to take lots of notes & try my best and try to leave work at work. I guess I just wondered, can anyone relate to any of this? Thanks in advance! :-) Hope it's OK to ask this but I just thought maybe some of you have been through this. It's also different from my previous career but there is an overlap as I do have transferable skills. Thanks.
