Chronic Wellness Support Group

Living with a chronic illness is difficult enough.

Feelings of misunderstanding and isolation can make matters worse.

Our group provides a safe environment where women like yourself can gather and share common experiences, challenges, and successes, and where we can offer one another practical and emotional support.

Have you ever felt this way?

You need to find people who can relate. Your family and friends only understand so much.

You’d like to see a therapist for emotional support, but want someone who understands the physical trials, too.

You’re not completely satisfied with your doctor and don’t know how to communicate your feelings to them.

You struggle with anxiety and depression about your diagnosis and feel frustrated about your limitations.

You want to earn a living and wonder if you are eligible for disability income for your condition.

The support group was like a deep cleansing and grounding breath.

[I was] surrounded by other women who understood the challenges of chronic pain and fatigue. I didn’t have to justify or explain–they just got it because they too have lived it. Each woman brought gifts to the group through their honesty and candidness.
