I am a volunteer ambassador for the awesome Bronchiectasis/NTM Info and Research non-profit agency. I post their upcoming webinars and conferences but more than anything, I am passionate about their support groups.
There are over 35 including an international one!!
In these groups we talk about a wide range of experiences and issues. It feels like an old-fashioned quilting circle except we are talking about airway clearance, exercise and nutrition instead of fabric patterns and quilt designs.
To see if there’s a support group in your area (many are virtual) go to https://lnkd.in/eTvGEpQH
No support group? Check in with Trisha at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is the Engagement Officer and she will help you find one or perhaps start one.
The best part of being in a group is sometimes we really connect with a few group members and then we have our own mini-support circle.
Warm. Supportive. Comforting. Community.
