I read in, Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers, that those who attend a
support group tend to have a longer life expectancy.

With that in mind I have attended every support group meeting
2 months before and every one after my IMRT and brachytherapy.

The first one I went to I asked my wife on the way home I wonder why
these guys come to these support group meetings. Now I know. You
learn something new every time and you can share with others seeking
to find answers.

The next meeting is tomorrow night, Dec. 1 at 7:00 pm.m at the Chicago
Prostate Center in Westmont, IL for those who are interested.

It does give you a new perspective, and a realization that others are dealing with the new normal as well.
I participate in a couple of groups, and most men do come with their wives. Somehow I suspect that during the breakout, the women are laughing about our finally having to deal with pads and hot flashes!

I should also mention that it gives an insight as to how much work Tony does - as a moderator here, but also in his role in USToo. It takes a bit of dedication.
