This week - like any other event week - has just flown by. I thought I posted Wednesday, but I just saw that it had been Monday.
Pardon the absence.
I have to speak at the event I am putting on Tuesday. I have no problem with public speaking but I am not usually comfortable with the spotlight on me. At the events I am in charge of, I make everyone else get up and speak while I run around like a hamster spinning the wheels to make sure everything gets done.
This time around, I realized that we didn't have anyone to speak about their own mental health experiences or what the organization meant to them ... or anyone to ask people for money.
Somehow I have managed to sandwich that into five minutes. (And no, I am not going to use the word "Fuck" in my speech. I save that kind of talk for the office.)
Now I worry about falling on the way up to the podium, spilling coffee...etc.
Cross your fingers for me. I'll be much more relaxed (hopefully) after Tuesday.
Also, thanks so very much to everyone who has sent me well wishes and donations for this cause. If you missed that post and still want to contribute a buck or two, visit here.
PS I stole this awesome LOLcat from my long-lost sister twin at Rainbows and Unicorns.
Check out her blog, she is fantastic!
PPS This is post #700. Wow. I had no idea I had that much to say.
