Thanks brainless, I'll check it out.
It looks like the support group is in central florida if that'd help you out earthmama.
I had tried an arthritis group and fibromyalgia group in the past. Neither are a particularly good fit.
I moved here from a place where you had a choice which group you felt like going to. I went to my first when I only suspected lyme. They were instrumental in getting me on track and made sure I knew how to advocate for myself.
Later on aI went to a smaller group that was meeting near my home and the leader passed away from untreated lyme. (she was working so hard to insure proper treatment for her daughter she didn't get herself treated.) She was in her early 40s and had a massive heart attack in her sleep.
Another woman and myself thought her group should go on as a tribute and so we took over. It was predominantly newly diagnosed people looking for information and advice.
Hey trueblue, been searching myself for a support group in Panama City. I even checked out how I myself could get one started ON'T YOU KNOW THERE'S NO LYME HERE IN PANAMA CITY,OR THE SURROUNDING AREA!Oh well, I'll just try again at a later date. Hang in there, Robin
