So I’m at Canberra for the expo and NTE. Most years I’m tired but excited. This year, I’m tired, sad and fighting a very strong urge to run away. It’s quite disconcerting. I am trying to think of practical ways to remedy this swamping depression – J and I had a drink and a chat last night, and I may follow her example and go to the gym in the mornings (there’s a Fitness First nearby). That might sound odd given that I’m complaining about being tired, but I think possibly getting the blood flowing and those happy exercise endorphins into my brain might help a lot.
It’s going to be a great conference. I know it is. I just hope I can participate and not become a gibbering mess in the corner.
