I would start by checking www.lupus.org
and find the nearest chapter. Then see if they can offer you any support. You can also see if your doctor is willing to tell his other patients that you are starting a group. You can start by meeting in any public restaurant that is informal and has seating for 10-12 at a table. I've used Panera Bread and Let-us-surprise-you in the past.
