I have been meeting with a Psychiatrist on a regular basis since diagnosis. He pointed out , as I have observed, that "support" groups are filled with negativity. People who get on with their lives don't have the inclination to post. It's only the needy, hurt people that are in desperate need that reach out to groups. He also said there is so much misconception online, because it is skewed. I have met a few genuinely wonderful people here on this site, but I don't know that constantly monitoring, feeding into this T actually helps. I am trying something that it seems most people here have a hard time dealing with. I thought a "support" group was to be just that...SUPPORT! This seems to be a place where people judge each other, are not open to new things, etc. If this is what a support group is, I'm going back to people I actually know who can;t hear the noise,, but don't make me feel bad, just because I am trying something they can't afford. You know what? I can't afford it either!
