I'm a member of the LFA. I get lots of newsletters from them and updates. I started a local support group a few years ago but, it didn't go very far at the time. There wasn't much interest then and not alot of people wanting to get out around here. This is a very small town. It would probably do alot better now if someone started one here.
I think its great that you are wanting to help others while getting the help you need as well. I hope it goes well for you and I wish you the best with this. Please keep us updated and take care. I will be sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.
