    Hi, just wondering if anyone is from pa here. I have been trying to look into a support group here in my area. This diease is a terrible thing, not only for those that suffer from it, but for those around us.

    Hi Tracy,
    I live in Pittston and we sure do need a support group here in this area. Maybe one of the hospitals would sponcer one if enough people contacted them. If there are any more people from the wilkes-barre/scranton area please leave a message on this board.
    then maybe we can all get together and contact one of the hospitals.

    I live in NE PA, nearest to Bloomsburg, off of Interstate 80 but Wilkes-Barre or Scranton off of Interstate 81 is close as well. I'm in the process of getting one started near my home. Where are you?

    If you call the 800 number for the Arthritis Foundation they can give you the information. I've spoken to the leader and she sounds like she would be nice to work with, knowledgeable, long history with FMS.

    Where are you located in the WB area, closer to Nanticoke and Hunlocks Creek or Scranton?

    I'm about as far away from you as possible and still being in the same state. Straight down I-81 in the Chambersburg Area on the Md. border.

    well I don't know where you live but there is one at the Phoenixville hospital every 1st Tues. of the month. It is from 7 to 9:30. They are all great people. It is nice to be around other people who share our "shy" pain, that is unbearable. Good luck. Hope this helped you.

    I will be back in PA Sunday or Monday and will look up your profile and email you the info for the one in Scranton. It's at one of the Allied Services Bldgs.
