Support groups ?

Hi I'm still looking for a support group in the midlands ive looked on the link & on the Net but its all showing there isn't one . As my Gp is not very ofay on this condition or just could not care less . An as a family every one has such a lot going on . New Baby's , jobs ,moving House an so on i could do with an outlet an some contact with people who have same things going on . This site is good but I'm becoming more house bound an icelated my friends are good but i sometimes feel like a charity case because I'm ill all in love an heart felt best intention's . But just be nice to have some wear to go wear they understand me an me them .

Any ideas wear to look anyone because I've ran out of them xxx

I suppose you could start your own group - maybe advertise a coffee get- together, and see if any like-minded folks turn up? It doesn't have to be all about fibro - maybe just people who are needing an outlet like yourself. Just a thought!

You might also consider contacting your local Social services, who might help you to set up a group, as it is a bit of a challenge when you're ill yourself!

Good luck, whatever you decide to do!

Love from Moffy x

I am in Leamington. I didn't know there was a group here. When looking, I thought the nearest was Rugby.

There are several groups in the Midlands but it depends where you are. If you go onto fmauk.org and look at the support group section that might be of help x
