Hi,

I am also from the Chicago area. I have tried finding support groups in the past and had little success. I would be interested in knowing what your experience has been.

From Chicago area, kind of anyway, North West Indiana. I haven't had much luck finding a group either. I have toyed with the idea of starting a group, but not sure how to go about it. Any thoughts?

Hey des,

Keep an eye out for the next newsletter scheduled to be published here in late January. It will have an article from one of the first men to start an MS support group. His is in Los Angeles. It will be a step by step process for getting a support group off the ground.

In the meantime, keep in touch with the guys who are geographically closest to you and who use these boards. Good luck.

Taz
