Yeah I should volunteer more it might make me feel good.

I’ve been volunteering for many, many years. I plan on volunteering all of my life until I am no longer able.

I tried and came home and had the shakes and intrusive thoughts for two days. Definitely was a horrid experience. I so wish I could volunteer.

Yeah all good points! Works well for me. I can’t work full time but doing a couple of days a week on my terms is great. Keeps the shrink happy!
