What we're about

COVID-19 UPDATE: Since we are meeting on ZOOM, at this time, we welcome Pain Sufferers, worldwide. Please join us, if you are feeling isolated. We are here for you.

Who We Are:

We are a Support Group for people who live with Fibromyalgia and other forms of Chronic Pain. It's led by myself, Christine, the Group Organizer and Mark D., the Co-Organizer. We are Meetup partners and also partners, in real life. Between us, we have over 40 years experience in not just surviving, but thriving, with chronic pain. We will share the many things that have worked for us, and a few that didn't.

How We Work:

The Group Leader, either Christine or Mark D., will post a topic, on the event page, in advance of the meeting. On the day of the meeting, after the introductions, the group leader states the topic and shares their personal story relating to the topic. Then we go around the table, or Zoom room, and everyone shares their story, related to the topic.

If there isn't a topic posted, the group leader may:

1) Name one at the meeting.

2) Give members a choice of two or three topics to discuss.

3) Do a general Check-In, where we each share what is happening in our lives, at that time.

Our Hope:

To be a safe space for people to talk openly about their pain, without judgement, or criticism. To be a place of understanding and support.

Please join us, at our next meeting!

A Quick Note - We are Not:

1. A substitute for private counseling. 2. A client source for practitioners, or people offering "cures" for chronic pain. 3. A source for prescription medication. 4. A dating service.

Also, Please Note:

We are not licensed therapists. If you need help, please call 211 for connection to local resources, such as personal counseling, financial assistance and housing.

Thank you for joining us. We will see you soon!
