When your out & about possibly sitting in a hospital waiting room, "Do you ever get the urge to possibly help another person also waiting by sharing your favorite group or network of support groups?" Maybe they're like you were before you found your favorite support group/groups.True not everyone wants or feels like they or their family member needs a support group.
However, I find it hard especially when I know I'm around other patients or their family members not to ask them if they have heard of specific free online support group or if I'm sitting in a hospital waiting room, then I mention a network of groups. Sometimes I get lucky and find someone who is willing to listen for awhile or may even write the information down. I generally ask them to at least check it out and if they decide they don't like, then that's fine.
Would you be willing to share with strangers your favorite support group or network of groups?
If their diagnosis is different, would you help them search through your list of groups to find one that fits their needs?
Any suggestions on how to get others to do the same?
Lilbit thinks I run my mouth TOO much when it comes to sharing information about support groups, lol, and maybe I do!!!
