Hiya pinkquartz. :-} So sorry to hear you’ve a lot on you mind right now. I only hope things start to pan out real soon. HUGS Anyhow you asked about local groups in the message you posted in the thread ‘alone in Britain’. I don’t have any personal experience any of the groups I have posted details of below. (I simply lifted them from another site), sadly none are near enough for me to get to as I live in Yeovil and have no transport – besides a trip to the local shopping centre is about all I can handle. However, a doctor I saw recommended the Christchurch group.
