I’ve never had paranoia or psychosis so please forgive my ignorance if this comes across as incredibly stupid or naive, I’m just trying to relate - from what you’ve described is it like watching a horror movie, knowing it’s a horror movie/not real and still feeling scared? Like the real and intense emotions outweigh your conscious reasoning of ‘this is a movie, I can switch this off at any time, it’s just a screen I’m watching’? So you can tell yourself it’s irrational but your emotional state trumps those thoughts and you still feel in danger/scared? Or is it something totally different and that’s a terrible analogy.

I'd like to tack onto this question and ask if you think the job would be any different for a woman? I know it sounds like a stupid/loaded question but I am a young woman (early 20s) and would be interested in helping others at a shelter, but I am physically petite and would not be able to easily handle physical confrontation. I'm of course not assuming every resident would be violent but there is a high prevalence of mental illness in the homeless population, and was wondering if being 'strong' physically would be necessary in the job should a physical confrontation arise.

Just to say I’m a huge fan of Pokémon and this seems right up my street. That monster design is adorable and has absolutely sold me on this. I am totally going to buy your game when it’s available on Switch and am really excited to see all the different designs.

Thank you so much for your response! That's really good to know thanks, I'll look to enquire further with shelters in my area.
