Hello Ladies,

With support from the people at iaac I have started a support group for those who live in and around red deer. We will be having our first meet on either May 22nd or May 29th. I have the breakfast room at the Innisfail Econolodge anytime after 10am. So if any of you want to get together and support each other please let me know and I will get all the info to you.

So here are the details:

May 29th at 11am - 1pm at the Innisfail Econolodge, 5004 - 42nd Ave, Innisfail. It's pretty much on the 2A across from the boston pizza. If anyone wants to stay and talk longer we can all go over to the boston pizza's afterwards.

I really hope that everyone can make it. I went to the support group in Calgary on saturday and it was so amazing to meet a group of women that really 'get it'.

Hi Lala,

I can't speak for anyone else but I am 34. I think that a few of the other ladies are about that age and a few are younger. The rest I don't know.

As far as being shy, you don't have to be worried cause there is no pressure to share or speak. You are more than welcome to come and just listen until you feel comfortable enough to join into the conversation. There really isn't any structure and it isn't formal at all, you wont be made to stand up and talk about yourself or anything like that. Like I said you can just listen or you can ask questions of the other ladies and you might even be able to help give some answers that someone else might have.
It's basically a safe, friendly and casual place for everyone to come and not feel so isolated.

I really hope you can make it, I look forward to meeting you.

Hey Michelle - I'm sorry, but I won't be able to make it to the meet up on Saturday. I was supposed to be off work at 1am so it would've worked but now I'm working until 5am. Maybe next time.

Hi gals,
I started another thread about this but I thought I had better mention it here incase this is where you were looking. I am trying to set up the group for this month and was wondering if anyone was able to meet up either on the 19th or the 26th?
This time we will probably do it in red deer.
