“ It was good to finally get around to one of these sessions. I'm not going to lie, I found it difficult but no one ever said it would be easy eh? It was a relief to see some of my symptoms in other people, that is something I have never seen before and it was eye opening, a bit awkward yet comforting at the same if that makes sense? Probably not. Hopefully I will get around to one of the activity sessions and have a bit of fun and get to know everyone a bit better. ”

“ Normally in a small social group of 3 or more I would feel a little uncomfortable and it would be a real effort to stay involved but knowing we all had the same feelings and 'hang-ups', to a greater or lesser degree, really took the pressure off. So if you would normally shy away from social gatherings I would suggest that you try this meetup group. ”
