    What a lovely group of people! Thank you everyone for coming! I appreciate everyone sharing their feelings openly and honestly. It was also great to have such knowledgeable people. I was impressed by how resilient everyone is. I don't mean to say that we don't have our dark days with the difficult challenges of chronic pain, but I thought for the most part the attendees had pretty positive attitudes and more bunch of pretty proactive people.

    Again, like in other meetings, although we were talking about so many very difficult issues, it seemed like there was a pretty fare amount of laughing!

    Thanks, Monica, for the lovely flowers! That was so sweet of you! And it was like you know my style--purples and pinks, like loosely arranged well flowers. I honestly just threw them away yesterday. I just loved how they looked even though they were getting a little bit wilty

    What kind of things are discussed? I am only now starting to get back somewhat on my feet after a move and illness-and my ex of 22 yrs. is suing to stop support. He was an abuser, have injuries from that-he was supposed to help with medical, and of course didn't. I need legal help, medical help for Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, several disabling car accidents, and diabetes. My family has dropped me, thinking I fake, or the health system is better than it is. :( NOW think my abusive ex might have had reason to beat the..whiner? LOL I am never around them... :( Would this group be able to help me with that? Understand how..after years of complaining of various symptoms...doctors SAYING Fibromyalgia, etc. , some records visits say, headache, headache,

    Thanks for hearing me out <3

      Barbara my ex of 7yrs carried my insurance for 1yr after walking out on me then met someone and decided to cut me off. Guess what? That is illegal in California under the family law.

      I understand all to well, my family basically has nothing to do with me, they can't see it so it doesn't exist.
