Hey I figured I would mention this if any of you happen to live in or around NYC. I've been looking for a support group for awhile now. (Don't get me wrong, I love you guys, but it would be nice to have a support system in person!) I haven't been able to find any near me, on Long Island, except through the Crohns and Colitis Foundation, but they charge you and their meetings were theme specific (couples, women (as in being a mother and a wife, yadah yadah) whereas I just wanted a general support group.
Anyways, somehow I discovered one through the website meetup.com. It's a small group so far, but it's nice because the organizer tries to arrange monthly meet ups in Manhattan. I might be going to one this Sunday. If anyone wants more information let me know! :)
