Kudos to you, congratulations, what a great attitude. I am so glad you have accepted that you need help and you are going to get it.
That is why we are here. Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam.
Stick with us, we support you.
