At the September meeting, we learned that Tom will be able to get speakers for our group through his involvement with Leadership Against Pain. He is on the executive committee of this group, which is sponsored by the NFA (National Fibromyalgia Association). Tom is also planning on starting separate small groups which will meet on a different day, maybe every 2 weeks. In these small groups, people will be able to share more about how their lives have changed because of this illness. Confidentiality agreements will be signed. We also learned that we have a sister group starting up in Green Bay. If you know anyone who lives around there and has Fibromyalgia, let them know! Email Tom for more details. Also, some late-breaking exciting news: The Post-Crescent newspaper is planning on featuring our group in an article!
