April brings two things that are connected in my life.
One is that three years ago, in April, my life took a drastic
turn. That was when I took medical leave from the PhD
program. That was when the mental illnesses broke through the
last of my defenses. That was the beginning of the summer spent
This April brings the restart of the NAMI support group meetings.
I'm facilitating one per month per town. That is a huge change
from what I had been doing!!
So, starting Thursday 13th April, NAMI Support Group Meetings will meet
in Columbus and Starkville on the second Thursday of every month.
Columbus will meet at 10a til 11:30a. Starkville will meet at 1pm
If there is a demand for more, down the road, then someone else can go
through the training and step up to the plate and shoulder some of the
responsibility. I'm going to watch my own limits closer and make
sure I don't skate on the thin ice of burn out again. I cannot
afford that, especially with these sorts of disorders affecting me.
