Support groups

Support groups

I have taken the past two years looking at, joining and sometimes leaving online support groups.
I even formed a very small facebook online support group “Fibro Warriors”.
I have found many support groups that contain too much negativity. I totally understand the need to vent when you are so frustrated, in pain and feel so alone.
I need to be able to express my feelings when I am facing a flare or a new symptom.
It is nice to be able to talk to those who understand because they too have experienced the same pain or worse for me the Fog.
I am very excited and nervous – Tonight I am attending a support group that is located near my work. The only thing I really know about the group is that they will have a speaker and then allow about a 30 minute period at the end for sharing and networking.
The one thing that puzzles me though is the time of the meeting. It is set to begin at 6:30 and go to 8:00 p.m.
Really? Don’t they know that Fibromites need to sleep?
By 8:00 p.m. I have my P.J’s on, meds taken and started getting ready for my 8:30 bedtime.
Hopefully, I will find out if anyone in the area will be doing anything for the May 12th – Fibromyalgia awareness day.
