I was wondering if anyone goes to any support groups in the Raleigh/Cary NC area and if so which ones? I'm pretty shy about meeting new people, but feel like at a year out I should at least attend a support group once a month. I need all the encouragement I can get to stay on track right now. But as I said, meeting new people for me is difficult, so although I haven't "met" anyone on here, I feel comfortable with talking to you and was wondering if anyone in the area wanted o go to a support group with me?

Hi Missy,

I host support group meetings in North Raleigh. We meet on the first Saturday of each month and Thursday evenings. You can get information about upcoming meetings at You are welcome to attend any meeting I host; do not worry if you do not meet the 'demographic' for a particular meeting. We all have much more in common than our differences.

You are also welcome to contact me directly and I'll be glad to meet you for coffee sometime.

Congratulations on your success! Keep up the good work.
