    I am looking for a support group in the Alma, MI area. I called the hospital and they told me that their wasn't one. I remember a friend from work going to one about two or three years ago. If anyone knows of one please let me know. I think it would help me a lot to go to one, I don't know of anyone that has FM in the area. I am talking with a theripist and they don't know of one in the area.

    carol, I know this is not what you are looking for, but, a few of us with this illness get together and chat at yahoo messenger. I sure helps me. If you are interested get the yahoo messenger and let me know, I can add you.

    We are not supposed to post stuff like that here!!!! I am on yahoo with a nic and email that is the same, I will end this post with my other nic!!!! I am 58 also with what you have. If you send an email try and name it so I wont delete it as I have so many that I do not usually open the spam stuff but will look for yours or you can add me to the messenger. I will go there now and delete my spam.

    ...and it can be yours, too!

    I can't drive, and before I found this board I was looking for a support group. Alas, they are all too far away.

    Then I found this board. I think it is better than a face to face support group because:

    1. We can "talk" to each other any time we want!

    2. Several people that know exactly what you are going through
    are here for you 24/7!

    3. We may not see each other face to face, but I think some
    people, myself included, open up more on these boards than
    we would face to face, and that is a healthy thing.

    4. It's free! (no gas used)

    There are a lot more advantages, but I think you get my drift.

    I'm so glad I found this board. You all have helped me already more than I can express!!
