I’m at Sacramento Airport waiting for my flight home to San Diego from three days of the NAMI California convention. Conferences always wear me out. I am thrown off all my routines vital to maintaining good mental health, including diet, exercise, and sleep. I can’t wait to crash in my own bed tonight.
But the people I ran into more than made up for that. For the most part, we are talking about the unsung - people like us, those visited by mental illness - serving in their communities. I will sing their praises in a future post. For the time being, let’s just say it was an honor being in their presence. I’m exhausted and worn out, yet I am nourished.
The world is a challenging place in the best of times. I’m headed back home, both humbled and inspired, in better shape to face whatever may lie ahead.
