It definitely helps to 'talk' to others who 'get it'! Welcome to HLAA. I have good news for you. The is a Milwaukee Chapter. It's called the Metro Milwaukee Chapter. They meet at the Wauwatosa Library when regular meetings are held. There's chapter information at the HLAA Wisconsin website. http://www.hlaawi.org Wisconsin chapters are located in Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton, Door County and Platteville. Currently, Fox Valley & Madison are holding meetings via Zoom that are open to anyone who wants to attend. Let me know if that interests you. So much to learn. Feel free to send me a personal message.
