Living Well With Lupus Chat - A Telephonic Support Group
· A support group is a self-help group. It is run by and for people who have in common a particular challenge or life situation. Support groups are composed of people with lupus, family members, and/or friends who gather periodically to share common concerns. People are willing to talk freely and to trust openly in the good will of the other group members.
· A support group is a place to be yourself. The most difficult "step" is walking in the door. The "program" is about making yourself and others feel welcomed and accepted. It means knowing that your privacy and confidentiality will be respected.
· A support group is a source of information. Its members are a treasury of practical experience! They are also great collectors of articles, newsletters, books, and other information about lupus and they enjoy sharing them with others.
· A support group is an added circle of friends. Here is the place to talk, laugh, and cry about life with lupus with people who will listen, laugh and cry, too. [This can save much "wear and tear" on family and other relationships!] All and all, it is a safe place for people to learn, share, and help. Individual differences and confidentiality are respected.
