Thumbs Up Support group

I attended a support group for the third time in a couple of months on Monday afternoon. It was ok. BF

With all of the things that I have learned during the years that I've had these conditions, I'm not sure if a support group is going to help me very much.

I may be able to help others more then I will be helped. That's ok with me. BF

I've accumulated so much knowledge, and experience about mental health. I seem to be helping others at these meetings. I have a lot to say, but I keep quiet about allot of things because I don't want to be talking to much. I definitely don't want to become obsessive compulsive in my speaking at the meetings because that would not be helpful to anyone. I've seen people do that before. BF

After the meetings you can go up to individuals with additional information for them. I know I made a good friend this way.
good luck at the meetings.

Kay Me to. The Seroquel helps me to let some things go that I was going to say. I'm not as hyper in speaking about things these days. BF

I need to keep attending support groups unless they become a financial burden. Right now I can attend them because I'm on medicare/Medicaid.

I need to keep getting out of the apartment. I seem to want to get away from everyone. I feel a little burned out in life because of all of the problems that I've had. I am very tired. BF
