Support Group

2.20.19

I think I might try to find a fibromyalgia and/or pain support group. Maybe a NAMI or DBSA group, too. Hit one of each a month, maybe. Anyway….. kicking it around.

Have any of you guys attended these types of groups? How did it go? ✌

  1. I often attend AA meetings with my daughter. I go to show my support. As a non alcoholic , I introduce myself, but the rules are I don’t speak during the meeting. After the meeting or before I share many things with the folks. I find it very healing. Even though I personally do not have issues with alcohol, many of the emotions and life screw ups resound with me . I hope you can find some support group, being face to face with people is very healing

  2. I attended several NAMI meetings with a friend who also lives in Ste Genevieve. The problem was that the group was held at night, in a town 30 minutes away. We found it too much driving there as the road was curvy and I felt a bit scary to drive on in the dark.

    My friend and I are hoping to work towards getting a NAMI meeting in Ste Genevieve in the next several months. There is trading to go thru and it is not free. Our county has a Mental Health Board we are planning to approach in the next few weeks to seek the funding.

    In the past I attended an Emotions Anonymous (EA) group in another town 30 min from home, but found again, the drive was too much.

    I highly recommend checking out the support groups Jen. It is nice to have folks who understand what you are going thru to talk to.

  3. I’ve just come to the same part in my journey, looking for support groups in my area. I’m finishing up with my DBT group in a few weeks and I think I’m going to miss the group chatter every week. My therapist said there’s a mood disorders one near me, it’s on “the list” of things to do.

    I never thought to look into one for fibromyalgia or other pain related stuff, but that’s not a bad idea at all.
