Dis connected Worried
They sum it up. And I'm not alone. Those words describe how I've felt these past few weeks. On any given day, normally I spend a great deal of my time reading and visiting other journals, and writing in mine. But lately, all I've wanted to do is be a recluse. Not me. At all.
Work is a strain, all the time. More so than usual and I've begun exploring other avenues to solve this. But recently I realized the underlying cause of this funk may very well be due in large part to Mother Nature...Hurricane Katrina affected me a great deal more than any other disaster.
So many people, and animals, need our help....still. Donate. Find a worthy cause you trust, be it the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, the Humane Society, or any of the many social welfare non-profits. They still need us (the last clickable link will take you to a FEMA page, which at the bottom provides a long list of links to voluntary and/or charitable organizations directly involved with Hurricane Katrina relief.).
If you can't donate money, then donate food, clothing, housewares, furniture, or even time.
If you can't donate the above, give the gift of life. Blood. People need blood, and after a disaster like Katrina, blood is in very short supply. Don't forget to donate blood, if you can. You may just save someone's life.
