"I Am A Warrior" Chronic Illness Support Group with Genia Silva, CPC
Fri, April 21, 2017, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
Let’s face it, when you live with a chronic disease, some days are just harder to get through than others. At times, feelings of isolation and the uncertainty of your circumstances weigh heavy. You may feel hesitant to seek support from your family and friends for fear of burdening them. Instead, you keep it all inside.
In times like these, it’s important to remember you are not alone. There are so many people, including myself, who face the same challenges as you. I too have my share of bad days. I understand your frustrations, concerns, and want to share in your victories. That’s why I’ve decided this group needed to happen. A safe sanctuary where we can get together, share and support one another and perhaps lighten each others load a little bit.
If you’ve ever thought, “No one understands what I am going through,” think again. As someone who had lived on the chronic illness highway for more than 20 years, I feel you. My vision for this group is simple. While there may be no cure for our illnesses, connection is key. Let’s help build each other up through encouraging words and success stories, helpful hints and life hacks. Together on this journey, we can and will take back our control instead of letting our circumstances control us.
A $5 suggested donation to attend this group is appreciated if you are able.
