San Diego Local Support Group “Caring and Sharing”
For this meeting, there will be no guest speaker. You will be speakers. Everybody who wishes to do so will have 5 or 10 minutes (depending on the number who attend) to share with the group. Suggested topics for discussion:

  • How you were diagnosed
  • What treatment you chose or are considering and why?
  • For post-treatment patients, how you are coping?
  • Caregivers: How, what, when and why?
  • Family members/loved ones: How your family life has been changed post AN.
  • The single best piece of advice you can offer to your fellow AN’ers, caregivers or family members.

This meeting will be very informal. We’re planning to have plenty of time to meet, greet, socialize and compare notes. As most of you know, our own membership has an incredible reservoir of real life experiences they are willing to share.

If you have a hearing aid or hearing device that you are pleased with, bring it along so the others can see it. If you have been prescribed a medication that is effective, bring it along and others can take note for discussions with their own doctors. If you’ve had successful physical or vestibular therapy bring information about it.

We will also have copies of the amazing list of resources Wanda Crook prepared for us last year. And, our list of free referrals will be on hand. Take this opportunity to update your library of AN literature. We have updated versions of most of the AN titles.

Please join us at the beautiful La Jolla library for a great afternoon!
