    Context will tell you what the person was feeling which made them feel like doing something alone.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Here is more context:

    I just can not understand what does this sentence after the paragraph below means.

    In September 2011, we took a blast from Hargreaves about how he had been supposedly let down by our medical staff in his time with us. He claimed we had used him like ‘a guinea pig’ for treatments for his tendonitis and various knee problems. We took legal advice and could have proceeded against him, but the doctor was not sufficiently offended to seek legal redress. We did the best for that lad. No matter what the staff did for him, he created his own agenda.

    I would say to him, ‘How are you this morning?’

    ‘Great, boss,’ he would reply. ‘But I think I’ll do something on my own. I’m feeling it a bit.’
