“ This meet-up group was my first step in acceptance of who I am now. Not the person I was, not the person I wish I was - Just Me! As I am... I spent years trying to deny it or fix the unfixable. The only thing to do now is to move forward, with love and compassion. Learn as much as possible and try to stay in the light and out of the dark. I met and joined a yoga group from this group and that has been a lifesaver! This is a wonderful place to begin your journey... Thank you Shelley Echtle for continuing this support group. I know you work very hard! ”

“ As Shelley said, (there&amp;#039;s only one Shelley by the way!) this is a national award winning group. There are currently few officers to help her, and we have to remedy this. I see certain members that I know would give the very shirt off their backs to help attendees as the old saying goes. I saw no male Fibromytees at the last meeting. I&amp;#039;m here to help change that. Guys come out. Take a chance and tough out the fear of the unknown that we all experience upon attending in person. That&amp;#039;s a natural feeling, but one we can transcend. ”

“ I think this is a beautiful group of people and am very thankful to have found them, or more accurately, that God put them in my life. God knows just the right time for everything and He put this group in my life just when I felt I could no longer handle a life with constant pain. I am a quiet person generally, but feel very comfortable being with these ladies and the one gentleman that I've met. I never feel pressured, but have felt a sense of belonging with each meeting I've gone to so far. ”
