    Hello! I have thought of joining you for some time-but am shy, tend to isolate myself when in pain. My family has even deserted me-after 40 years of service!!--so am afraid to even MENTION how really feel, LOL! SURE you can understand this, unfortunately :) NOW crisis on TOP of crisis, has my PTSD is starting to act up again :( Am in desperate need of friends who can understand my pain, my situation-the difficulties we have with even our OWN physicians understanding? Have multiple issues-alone could handle easily, HAVE-but now together are crippling me :( NO insurance despite assurances-may become homeless VERY soon.. LOL I DID say desperate, didn't I? Have my sense of humor, love to laugh-DON'T want to give up, want to GIVE! SO....if I get brave... Actually, I am at the point where the pain is keeping me from doing what I NEED to KEEP my income in COURT... NOT sure IF I would be any good around people...SO stressed, but if YOU are still game...Thanks for listening! Barb

      Hi Barbara, I feel really bad about all of your distress. And, yes, this is a group of people that can understand the issues you're mentioning. I am confused however about what sounds like your not being able to attend a meeting. We had a meeting today at 300pm. The meetings are the 2nd Wed. of each mos. You just have to RSVP "yes" if you would like to attend. I think the RSVP deadline is 24 to 48 hrs. before the meeting. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact me via the photo of me on the left--"contact organizer" and a graphic of an envelope. Then I'll get a private email from you. Hang in there! Sarah

      I know you had a meeting yesterday. WHY I wrote to see if okay to come..maybe join? ASKING when I see other messages unanswered, and checking to make sure? I do not have the gas money to go anywhere and not be the right address, date, etc. LOL NEEDED some support now. NEXT month I may not have a home or income to attend, so thank you anyway. I have a court date TUESDAY to PROVE I am a chronic sufferer, with no medical or doctor..or whatever..or I lose my spousal support from my abusive EX and my HUD apartment. I ask first because as a chronic sufferer..as I said, I am no longer welcome with any family or friends. My doctor used to SIGH when he saw was ME in the room? It HURTS them to see me in pain, lol.

    Twice now I have asked if we can form an evening meetup for those of us who can't make it at 3pm and never have I received a response.

      I would be happy to host an alternative evening appointment. My place is small, I do have a small dog if that effects anyone....would gladly go over any materials you would like me to share with the group.

    Again no response. I think that is extremely rude when you have a group not to response to those who subscribe to your posting.
