National Alliance of Mentally Ill San Diego Walk May
This was the first time I had ever been apart of a NAMI Walk. It was a huge turn out. About 2 thousands people plus showed up to walk the event. It was such a neat experience to be able to have a booth there. It was uplifting but yet sad all at the same time. I would hear a great story of hope from a parent and then a sad one from someone else who had lost a loved one to mental illness. I was not feeling well this day physically but I pushed through the event anyway. I probably shouldn't have done the event with how sick I was. I ended up getting bronchitis and laying in bed for 6 weeks to get well. This showed me that while I would like to conquer everything I need to still take care of myself. I have never in my life been that sick. This event led Tara and I to many contacts along with again helping so many families. If you ever can be apart of a NAMI Walk do it once for everyone knows someone suffering with some kind of mental illness. Do your part! Maggie
