Hello all! I have been dealing with fibro symptoms for almost 5 years but was only diagnosed 6 months ago. I am hoping to meet others who are learning or have learned to keep their lives going despite the pain.
Our mission is to support individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFIDS or ME) and fibromyalgia and to provide educational resources so they may better cope with these conditions. We will do this through open discussion, group support and occasional guest speakers who work in the field.
We aim to:
*Develop a safe, nonjudgmental support network between members so they may connect and offer support to each other.
*Foster empathy, understanding and a positive outlook.
*Offer a space in which members can share their perspectives and experiences.
*Expose members to a variety of educational resources.
1. Opening circle to check in briefly with each member. Please be brief to allow each member the time to speak.
2. Presentation on a selected topic.
2. Discussion and group interaction.
