What I do as a Communication Facilitator is that I copy and tactile interpreting with a deaf-blind person based on their conversation on videophone on the screen since clients are not able to see other person on other end. This is how deaf-blind person gets to communicate with other person on other end.
As for Support Service Provider, I assist by reading mails, computer work, banking, food shopping, and do errands with a deaf-blind clients.
Since I mentioned before that I am a self-employed meaning that I get either to accept or decline assignments when needed.
I have been working for four days this week. And I was asked two days ago to work actually today for a couple of hours in Seattle area.
I originally wanted to have a day off today since I had an intuition that I need to do self-care by taking good care of myself. This way I can continue to function well on daily basis.
I was reluctant to accept work assignment. I recall based on examining myself that I actually need to wind down and give myself a break.
So, I declined that assignment. And it was good thing I did!
Actually I felt guilty to mention that I was not available. I sometime think it over again a few times. I realized that I need to set up my boundary since I have numerous of things I need to do at home and for my son.
As a result, it was great thing that I had opportunity to have quiet morning by doing what I wanted to do and had a good breakfast. And I grabbed some time to have a good rest.
Important thing is that I took some time to examine myself and kept in my mind that I need to take good care of myself.
I hope that you listen to your intuition to see if you need some time to wind down. And be able to set up a boundary. Self-care is definitely important to follow through, so you can think and function properly on daily basis.
