Do you think support groups help?

    I think so! I have yet to go to an in-person group BUT have taken part in many online support groups via facebook! I think social media has been such a wonderful way to interact with other patients that are looking for support.

    I believe support communities help. Support can take many faces. There are in-person support groups that are disease specific or general, online support communities, forums, mentors, oncology social workers, life coaches, clergy and close friends. No one should travel this road alone.

    There is no question in my mind that support groups help.
    My cancer center has a support group that meets every Wednesday at 6PM, I always wanted to go, but fatigue is so bad, that, that is just to late in the day for me, I am in bed by then ( unable to even move much)
    I actually started by seeing posts on Facebook about CLL.
    So I began to comment on them?
    Then after several times of answering posts on Facebook.
    I got an invitation to visit this web site, I believe it was from Anthony?
    Best think I have done, by far, WOW!
    This site is so wonderful.
    It has actually helped me more than words can say!
    Thank You
