I can’t thank you enough for the english support group, I have been searching for one for a few months now.
I even considered forming a group myself, however did not think i am resourceful enough to pull it off, so this is awesome.
There are such conflicting views from Doctors with regards to treatment, It would very useful to gain some insight from people who are living positive.
Where would the support group be held ?
Are family / and friends welcome to attend?
Thank you again
Thank you for responding. I can fully understand your frustration as I looked around for an English support group and came up with nothing, hence me starting this on the 4th August 2011.
It will be great to share experiences with one another as that to me is the best way to get information; from people who have experienced it!
I will email you the venue, I can however tell you it is in Pinetown, I will send a form for you to complete, basic info about yourself.
As far as the family and friends are concerned I do not feel we should include them yet, again, some people may not be comfortable sharing their status with these people.
However, my intention is to have eight sessions and then set the individual people from the support group to set up family support groups.
