I have posted a few times over the last couple of weeks. I jst wanted to get some feed back on a thought I have had. As much as our breast care nurses are lovely and helpful, I personally would have appreciated a group of people in the same situation to talk to face to face. Also, having spoken to other ladies at different stages of treatment, I definitely felt I was helped by talking abt side effects and feelings and it is better talking to someone who has gone through or is going through the same sort of thing. I myself made what I thought were supportive comments to a friend of mine when she was going through this, but now, having gone through it myself, I have reaslised I was saying the wrong things.
My thought is, setting up a support group, which is offered on diagnosis, for people to meet up and share experiences, feelings etc, all a different stages. As much as this group is really helpful, I think it's nice to put faces to names. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
