Other information

We offer a safe space to meet, chat and have a drink. There is lots of laughter when we get together, it isn't all about the condition. However, if you are having a bad day, for whatever reason, there is always someone there to offer a listening ear. If you struggle with fatigue, (as many of us do), no one will be alarmed if you fall asleep in the corner. We know it can be difficult to come to a new group, especially when feeling poorly, but you will be welcomed by all. If walking into the room on your own causes you some anxiety, please get in touch beforehand and a committee member can meet you at the door and introduce you to other members. We have found in recent months, several members who additionally have other autoimmune related conditions which are misunderstood and like FMS & ME are not really talked about. These other conditions can affect people in numerous different ways, the symptoms of which can be life changing. We therefore open out our group to anyone who has an autoimmune condition. Please visit our website for up to date meeting times and dates.
