WooHoo!!!!!! grin

We actually started the first Support Group here in WA. Well not actually the first. The first one in many years. ISA used to have a group in Seattle.

We had 5 people lined up to be there, but only two of us showed up. But that is ok, because we did it! We met at my home, to begin with. but as we grow, we will look into other options.

The two of us that were there, are both in the MS family. I am so grateful that i actually have a place to go to see people's faces and match them up to the name i know on the MS website.

Anyone interested in joining in is welcome. We have a couple of rules (more later) to protect ourselves.

Please understand that this is a Support Group for CSA's to come together and share their experience, strengths, and hopes. It is not a professionally run therapeutic session.

If you are interested, PM me: pbert53, paul

If you cannot control what happens to you, you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

I'm curious to know if this is still up and running, as I'm from Bellevue/Issaquah, and I plan on moving back to the area. I would plan on moving to Kent, Lynnwood, Everett, or somewhere cheap (or *ugh, but I kind of hope not* Tacoma/Lakewood, since that was super cheap last I checked- just a hell of a drive to get to Seattle to come see you guys).

Life's A Dream,

This group Paul started and I helped him run for a couple of sessions. There was not much of a turn out (1 person plus Paul and I) so we disbanded. I know there are several guys in this neck of the woods that may be interested in starting a group. If there is enough interest I would be will to help get the group off the ground and would enjoy being a member.

Anyone interested please respond to this thread or pm me. Life's A Dream shot me a pm when you get back in this neck of the woods and lets see if we can either get a group going or have you join it. Take care and safe travels my friend.
