Meeting and talking to literally hundreds of people during each shift at Home Park has lit my fire again. For me the big problem was not interacting with human beings face to face. Now I do, I am in a far far better place.
People have been saying 'well done' etc, but I did tt for purely selfish reasons and it has worked out really well.
