This group aims to connect people with fibromyalgia and other chronic illnesses, as well as their family and friends so that they can learn from, share and support one another. Hoping to meet once/twice a month in a centrally located cafe or outdoor space. I wanted to start a support group within Boston for anyone in the city who might need it. I'm in my mid-twenties and have struggled with my fibromyalgia diagnosis as a young adult. I've been struggling to find a support group and so I thought, why not start one myself? Chronic illness and pain can be really isolating, lonely and disheartening at times and I strongly believe that creating a supportive community can be really helpful and healing.
