My girlfriend recently found out that she has thyroid disease after finding a nodule on her thyroid. This has greatly effected her emotionally, and she is not sure where to go for help. She doesn't have the means for therapy, but does take part in a online support group, which helps a little. She thinks that she would benefit more from a support group where she could see people face to face. She lives in Manhattan, NY. Do you know of any support groups that she could go for help. It seems that there are so many 12step support groups, but not many for this type of disease. This disease is causing her a lot of anxiety, fear, depression, anger, and confusion. She's not sure what symptoms are being caused by the thyroid, and what's not. I would appreciate any advice that you could offer me. I tried to contact a New York city support person, but the e-mail came back delivery failure. If you have a New York city contact I would appreciate it.
