Support Groups

I see many people talking about support group meetings. I can't seem to find one near me. Any idea how I go about finding one? I live outside of Philadelphia. It shouldn't be so difficult to find one.

The Lupus Foundation website has a link where you can put in your location and it will find a Support Group near you. I've also tried "Google" for support groups. Just put in "lupus support group" and right after it add your town/city & state (in caps) and you should get a few www. locations.
I've also found support groups for "pain" and other lupus-related support groups.
I hope that helps, Kathy

I agree with everyone else that the Lupus Foundation of America is the best place to start. I'd also ask each of the hospitals closest to you since many support groups are run through hospitals. Thanks for posting this question, for it was a great reminder to me that I'd intended to search for a local support group as well!

Good for you Jane! Most of the Lupus support groups meet only once per month but don't usually have scheduled meetings during the summer. After you find a group near you, make a note for yourself for September to put the "date" they meet on your calender. If I don't constantly make notes for myself, I wouldn't remember anything!
Hang in there, Kathy

There is no support group where I live. The closest one is over a hour away.
