As part of my virtual clubhouse attendance we compose a weekly newsletter that is published each Friday, I have decided to include those writings in my BlogFull Newsletters http://coronavirus.unionstationclubhouse.com/weekly/index.html
This week, we brought up the topic of returning to the Clubhouse Facility.
COVID-19 has brought a great amount of change over the past three months. The last day we were at the Clubhouse was originally the day I was to resume working. That evolved to accepting reduced hours and working from home. Of which, having the virtual component of Clubhouse has helped me more in my recovery while intertwining all three into a delicate package and learning what I needed to do to improve my recovery for myself and to take care of me. When it was announced that the Clubhouse would open, at first I was apprehensive about my safety upon retuning. However, I visited last week and was pleased by the poise and dedication of both our members and staff in their dedication to keep our Clubhouse facility and other devices safe and sanitary.
While I did get to go back to work this week, and as such I had scheduled to attend the Clubhouse those days. Upon exiting the van for the evening the first night, I felt extremely comfortable adding
an additional day to my schedule and am thankful for the ability of having the opportunity available to be able to have the flexibility of attending Clubhouse from my personal home or our Clubhouse home.
