  4. Hi all, If anyone is still interested, come to Live Well support group. Full info on livewellsupport.blogspot.com All the best and hope this will be helpful!
  5. And by the way Helen, thanks for your pointer. We find that people with CFS, ME, etc tend to differ in that some are worse in the mornings and some totally flag by afternoon. However, as of January, as well as fortnightly Tuesday mornings we will be doing once a month Sunday afternoons. Hope this will help to accomodate for more of the different needs! Thanks, Abi
  6. Hi Charlie, Sounds like you have a lot going on, but are getting pro-active treatment. I've had experience with morphine tablets and solution myself with my own journey, having broken my entire body on Jan 1st. I can empathise somewhat with your pain. I do hope the branch blocking works, and we would love to have you at the group. There is wheelchair access at Wellforce, but you must go round the back. So turn off Wilkinson st to get to the road running paralel along the bac side of the buildings. We just had a lovely session this morning, and the next one will be Tuesday 13th December. See livewellsupport.blogspot.com for full info, and let me know if if you would like any more information, support, or to provisionally book in! Kind regards, Abi
  7. Live Well support group for people with chronic pain and illness is opening its doors. Starting December 2011, we will be includind a wider variety of chronic conditions. The work we do in the group sessions is practical and beneficial to body and mind, of all individuals. Therefore we are no longer confining meet-ups to physical chronic pain and illness, but also mental pain and illness. Including: Stress Anxiety Depression Clinical and non-clinical mental health issues We are able to offer a minimal number of concessioned places, although whatever you can afford would be much appreciated. The group meets twice a month at Wellforce on Wilkinson street. See livewellsupport@blogspot.com for full information
  8. Debi: If you genuinely cannot afford it, we can sometimes offer concessions to attend on a donation basis. Of course all memebers would rather not pay I imagine, so we do have to be a bit discreet as you can understand. Thus far, my colleague and I are actually out of pocket for running the group, which we dont mind, but we do rely on payments (as affordable) to try and not have us too out of pocket! That said, I would never want someone to not be able to attend because they cannot afford the cost. Maybe you can send me a private message if you would like to discuss further....? Our next session is tomorrow morning. Come along!
