This online Meetup group is for women with Chronic Illness, who struggle with feeling alone and misunderstood. Finding friendships can be difficult when dealing with exhaustion, pain, anxiety and/or depression on a daily basis. It can be common to find that friends or even family are not understanding or sympathetic.
This group is for women who are looking for support, encouragement, and friendship. It is a space to vent frustration and grief for coming to terms with being ill, with others who understand. Many of us pretend to the outside world that we are "fine" even if nothing could be further from the truth. It is also a space to be your authentic self and to celebrate the small victories.
Due to many of us having difficulty leaving the house on a consistent basis, the group meetings are going to be over google meet.
