To all you nurses, and support workers. I am just starting Volunteer Support work to get a feel and see if it is for me, am also interested in Admin work. Mostly the reason I am also looking at support work for aged and disabilities is because of the abundance of work within this area, and also other reasons.
My concern is, I am not sure whether or not it is for me with my PTSD, whether I could handle it long term. I am still a bit timid, and still have major issues with violence etc, and am not sure if I would cope if I had a situation with support work? I would hate to pay all that money getting Certified, and then only to find I freak out...so I am doing Admin first and seeing how I go with the volunteer for awhile.
If anyone with PTSD works within this industry can you tell me if it is a suitable sort of work please?
