This is a group for anyone living with a chronic illness or chronic pain who wants to meet new people. Come socialize with others who understand what it is like to live with varying levels of health (and the challenges that accompany it.) Instead of using a traditional support group format, this group will get together for occasional meals, (accessible) adventures around DC, bodywork workshops... and anything else that looks like fun. I started this group because I'm new to DC and would love to meet, support, and socialize with other people who experience fluctuating degrees of health. I look forward to meeting everybody!
