    In tabs at the top of our pages here is various sites we can click onto...

    One is SUPPORT GROUPS it asks for your location info so it can be searched for one nearest you...or so I think.

    Contact the nearest support group leader to you for suggestions on how to adv. it, get a place, topics, how the meetings should be led, etc.

    A good leader never pushs their ideas, meds, doctors and so forth. Various topics would be discussed and sometimes you can get a speaker.
    Free time to talk with each other is great also.

    I imagine that not all support groups are the same. If you can find a well person (without this illness) to assist, that is a good thing to do also. Sometimes they are friends, mothers, husbands and such.

    How nice of you to think of this.............Susan
