Sad

Burned Out

Back home early from Queensland. Things were slowing down in Brisbane so they were starting to send home those who weren't willing/able to head up further north to help in the recovery efforts following cyclone Yasi...and there was no way I was up for that!

Next time I say I'm going to do something like this,please someone slap me in the face. Sitting in a Centrelink office and being abused by people I am unable to help? Being faced with technical problems from a computer system I was not trained enough to deal with? Sitting in front of people who have lost everything but are ineligible for claims? No. Just no.

I have nothing but respect for those who can do this sort of work, but it sure isn't for me. Right now I no longer have the energy to care about anything or anyone.I'm just gonna sit here in front of my computer and watch Venture Brothers and eat icecream. Someone else can sort out the worries of the world.

Oh, and I got suckered into making regular donations to another charity while I was away.Gonna have to re-work my budget because I just can't say no.

I'm sick of being told what a good person I am when I'm actually doing bugger-all. Bleh.

I can imagine it's very hard to be in that kind of situation. They are angry and upset, and need an outlet.
You know what tho? You were awesome for being willing to help out in person for however long you did regardless.
Happy
