September Support Group Meeting
To those who are joining us for the first time, we meet at the Bethesda Chevy Chase Regional Services Center on the third Thursday of each month from 7-9 p.m. It is wheelchair accessible and they have relatively comfortable chairs. Meetings take place in Room A (unless otherwise noted). Signs will be posted in the lobby. Please follow this link for detailed directions: Metro is just down the street. If you're driving, there is garage parking for $1.25 per hour. (As of July 2nd, individuals with handicapped plates or placards are no longer exempt from this parking fee.) Meetings take place on the third Thursday of each month for 2 hours. This group is for all who are affected by any type of chronic pain. Our objective is to listen with a compassionate ear and support each other in coping with the challenges that living with chronic pain can bring, and to inspire each other to live as fully as possible! You are welcome to bring pillows, mats, heating pads, and anything else that would make you feel more comfortable. You may also bring food if you need to eat during the meeting. Come out and meet new friends and support your fellow Pain Warriors! ------------------------------------------------ **I know from experience that chronic pain can make life unpredictable. With that in mind, if you find that you are unable to attend a meetup you have signed up for, PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO CHANGE YOUR RSVP!!!!** RSVPs can be changed until the start of the meeting. If the meeting has already started and you realize that you cannot make it, please post directly on the meetup page that you will not be attending. It only takes a minute to do this. Thank you!!!

What we're about

This is a group for anyone who knows what it is like to suffer with this monster called chronic pain. It's a huge pain in the butt, to say the least! I know how hard it can be to connect with others who understand what it is like to live with this. Not only is it difficult to connect with people who understand, it can be hard just to get out and meet people in general.

That is why I started this group. I wanted to create a place where people with all kinds of chronic pain could come together and socialize and support each other. This group is a safe place for us to talk about things we can't talk about with people in our lives who do not understand chronic pain. There is just one rule: what is said in the group does not leave the group.

My hope is that this will be a group where people can laugh, cry, vent, and encourage and inspire each other. Life goes on, and I want us all to live the best lives we possibly can!

Please check out the discussions page and feel free to add your thoughts!

Please note: We do not allow soliciting. Please do not come to the group intending to sell a product or service. You will not be allowed back. (If you want to share information about a particular product that has helped you, that's fine as long as you don't profit from it financially!)
