It has been a stressful day. Ive started my peer support worker training and my boiler broke this morning so I had to get an emergency engineer out.
When my training finished at 4pm I phoned a taxi to go home. 5pm and still no taxi. I became extremely agitated and stressed. Then I bumped into a staff member at Highbury Hospital who knows me from when I was a patient. She came home with me and made us a coffee while I phoned the engineer. We chatted on my sofa as she enjoyed chocolate cookies and she stayed for a second coffee after the engineer. She stayed with me until 7pm and helped me avoid impulsive behaviour due to the stress I was experiencing.
I would like to say a massive thank you. I think you are very compassionate and you put me at ease. I owe you one xxx
