I bag groceries 30 hours a week for $$, but I spend a fuckton of time serving my community. I have spent the last few years developing educational programs, managing volunteers, schmoozing with powerful people to get the support we need, and direct patient care. It's really nice to be recognized on a national level, though when a patient who was in pain gives me that relieved thank you after they can finally relax, that's the best thanks.
I think a big part of me wants to give back to the community to sort of make up for the damage I cause to myself...but that's okay. The work is getting done, no matter the reason behind it.
Here's to another year of service :) 🍻
