My name is Threasa I'm 53 years old. I live in New Mexico. I was thinking that maybe if we could find people near us we would have someone to talk to a little bit more and support each other I hope this helps us find people that are near us

@Cembre21 Hello Cembre21, thank you for creating this discussion! What a great idea! Let me tag some other members who may not have seen this yet!
Hi everyone, how are you doing today? Where are you from? Do you know of any MS groups in your area? Is anyone based in New Mexico or the Southwest?

I'm live in Iowa, there is one close to me. There's a group that meets at the hospital, but its during a time that I work, so I won't be able to attend the meetings.

My name is Alicia Haynes from Arkansas. I have been diagnosed for 12 years now. I'm not aware of any meetings or support near me. I would love to attend

I am from Ohio, and if there is such a group, I am not familiar with it.

I currently live in Greensboro, NC and my name is Luke Lyddon. I was officially diagnosed earlier this month. I was 2 years ago, but I had a homeopathic DR tell me it was Lyme instead. So we went down the natural treatment path and it went into remission for two years, and now my symptoms are worse than ever. I am certainly in a MS relapse and I have had a second MS Specialist tell me I have the disease as well.
I just finished my round of steroid treatments to help alleviate the pain, and it is just so much to handle emotionally. It is just so overwhelming and I desperately need people to speak to, THAT CAN RELATE!
Right?!?! I appreciate the love and support from my family, but they can't fully relate to what I/we are going through.

@Cembre21 If you can't tell, I'm from the San Diego area. I haven't looked for a group myself because it's not really my thing, I usually just come here when I have questions or when I want to talk to other people with MS. The National MS Society may have a list of MS groups by state.
