We are getting tons of rain here today. It was a dark and stormy night... you get the picture. A day meant for curling up with a good book, or watching a black and white classic movie. When I was a kid, my family used to gather together on Sunday evenings to watch Family Classics. The best movies! Oh, to be young and innocent and arthritis free again!

I don't go to any. I am not sure why. Well, honestly I have a sneaking suspicion that it is because I was always afraid it would depress me. Now that is uncharacteristically not like me to duct from knowledge but the truth is the truth. SAL

I don't, mainly because I don't know of any active groups specifically for caregivers...and I live in the capital city of my state.
I do belong to a group for families of adults with developmental disabilities, but most of what they talk about is Medicaid/ services for their family member (and in most cases, it's for an adult child). Which is great, but sometimes it would be nice to have someone in person to talk to about the caregiver side of things.
Teams I am on:
Boise Sparks Idaho Living Caregivers support (leader) Celiac & Gluten Free Frucose Intolerance Leaving 210- ville LDS Ladies Love Kids, Just Don't Have Any One Person, One Dream (pay it Forward) People w/ Cerebral Palsy People w/ DIsabilities on Fixed Income Plantar Fasciitis Sleep Apnea South Beach Diet Tall Ladies
I was wondering if any of you attend caregiver support groups. If you do, do you like them and are they helping? If you don't, why not?
I'm going to be attending a support group for Alzheimer's on Tuesday night (I've only been to one a few months ago), but I think I'll check with our local hospital, too, to see if there is a more general caregiver group in my area. Sometimes living in a small town limits my options.
