Hi, I live in South Wales (Newport) and was wondering if there was anyone else living in my area?

I would like to meet up with some other sufferers regularly on a social basis where we could perhaps have a coffee and a chat, perhaps offering each other support. I've looked on the website but there is no group in my area at all. I know there is a group in Cwmbran but due to being epileptic I can't get to it as I've had to revoke my driving licence at present. Perhaps in the first instance we could just meet up for a coffee in the town centre and see what the other people (if any) would like to do about a regular get together.

  • Hi have you asked the society to put you in touch with anyone local? I am sure they could help you with this and also to set up your own local support group if you are interested in doing this.

  • Hi, I know three others in Wales with Behcet's. Are you on Facebook? Find me if so or give me a link to find you and I will link you up.

  • Do you have a good Behcet's specialist? One of my Welsh friends is struggling due to the Welsh Assembly position on referrals, but we hope to get her sorted. I actually know of 4 others in Wales, I've realised. Do message.
