Case Study

Made to feel useless

During all our campaigns I feel incredibly useless. When I was first elected I did hours of phone banks. Since my anxiety issues I get petrified.

I have asked repeatedly to stuff envelopes at home as our CLP office is rather inaccessible. I get no response from the office although they know in the past I have stuffed more than 3000 envelopes in two days.

I always feel not good enough.

When I was selected to stand this last time I was grilled about how many hours I could dedicate to campaigning. How do I know how I will feel until it’s time to leave? Then the group go to the pub. I don’t do alcohol, so rarely go.
