Anyone in the Chorley area with Hashimoto's / M.E. / CFS?


Hello, I am looking to start a local community support group in Chorley (North West), and the surrounding areas, for people with Hashimoto's, M.E., CFS, and / or autoimmune conditions. The support group will aim to offer kind words, advice and help for anyone living with one or more of the conditions. Due to current restrictions this will mostly be set up as on online community on Facebook. However if there are options to meet safely outside, socially distanced, I will arrange wherever possible. Finding people who understand what you are going through and who are in close proximity can sometimes make all the difference if you are struggling with feeling isolated, lonely or misunderstood due to illness symptoms for example. If you are in the Chorley area and interested in joining / creating a local community support group with me, please drop me a message.

Great idea Veg22!

I'm going to add this to the Pinned Post list (on the right unless you're using a small screen).

Hopefully that will mean more people will see it when they look in on the forum over the coming days.

Wonderful, thank you RedApple! 😊

MacG runs a Lancashire support group which meets in Chorley, assuming it is still going. Might be worth contacting her. I would be interested but won't do Facebook, sorry. Best of luck x

Not heard anything. Probably not enough of us on here in that area.
