    West Coast or East Coast? There used to be one in Cape Coral at the hosp. I tried it a couple of times but stopped going. There was one woman who dominated the whole discussion because her husband left her. While I felt bad for her, she needed professional counseling as no one was equipped to help her. We were glad to listen, within reason, but this poor lady was a train wreck. We couldn't help her and she kept us from helping one another. The next time, a woman came who was so negative that she ruined the whole meeting.

    Good support groups, with good moderators, can be great. Unfortunately, most people's experience with support groups has not been positive. That is why I love this online support group. Good luck.

    Love, Mikie
