NAMI ConventionYup, that's right! My mom and I flew down to San Antonio, Texas yesterday (yes, we flew!) in order to attend the National Alliance on Mental Illness. And... that is why my ears are ringing right now.
I have been PLANNING and PLANNING and PLANNING to blog about this AND everything else! I swear to you!!! I have unfortunately added more incomplete posts to the list... I may just copy and paste all of them on one blog and write to be continued on them! Ha! That is actually sounding like a great idea!
So, ladies and gents, guess what? My ringing and mind-blowing pressure in my ears has subsided! And, I thank you... But, I thank ME too!!! I remembered how important it is to step back and use a skill! Now, that I remember how freakin' FREAKY this kind of stuff makes me... I will be heading in to a Special Presentation on Advancing Recovery with PLENTY of distress tolerance skills (especially grounding!) at the ready!
And, speaking of presentations... First, I will be attending REVIVING PALIN OLD THERAPY: PROMOTING MENTALIZING IN RELATIONSHIPS
I will try to post as often as possible! Even if it is just a pic or a quick note! I have a feeling that I am going to be pretty busy (and TIRED!).
Oh, and thank you to the precious girl who asked if I had signed up for the Young Adults Session Guide!!! The cutoff is 30... :-( They were so cute!!! And, they thought I was one of them!!! Love it!
