GREETINGS TO WOMEN ZEBRA'S, A Zebra is one who struggles with an uncommon or rare disorder
"When one who hears hoof beats you might envision a horse because they are not conditioned through education to think it could be a different uncommon health issue like a Zebra's stripes are not all the same making each one unique thus rare".
A non formal all inclusive open forum support meet up. In a caring compassionate relaxed style setting. No matter if you have been diagnosed yet or not we welcome all related illnesses. We greet with hugs if wanted and updates of our health journey. There are no set times for discussions or coordination of who speaks unless pre planned activities are scheduled. Everyone is invited to present any ideas or suggestions or to talk about any need they may have at any time during meet up.
We all tend to have something of interest to share with the group and listen to each one with concern and respect. We may ask about your journey and life in general so we know how to better support you because we compassionately desire to help in any way we can. If you wish to participate or just sit quietly it's your choice. You are free to speak and act openly without judgement only within respectful guidelines to property and safety of visitors.
