Looking after my health is a real job in itself which I juggle with my exterior work. I know that many people have to cope with a health job, as well as provide from their material ones.
However when unwell I need a genuine shelter from the economic realities of life. A space to recover. Human contact.
Because the economic part of me has dried up and is replaced by the fear that it has gone for good.
Recovery is a process where I begin to feel I can do it all over again.
It is a distressing process as well as a happy one as it nags on my conscience to feel all right as quickly as I can. To grasp reality and be all right.
This is why I call it another job because it takes time and effort to be accomplished.
I trust society can allow spaces for people to recover properly so they can grasp the nettle once more. To have patience as we gradually learn what exterior work actually means with each episode, gaining more experience in the real world and defeating our unreality.
