Thank you so much to those of you that participated in our most recent support group telephone conference. We had a wonderful and informative meeting as we had an opportunity to share this journey with each other and provide support and encouragement. For those of you that were not able to attend, we would certainly love to have you join us at our next meeting. You will find some of the highlights of our recent meeting listed below:
- We discussed the treatment medications including the new pure cholestyramine available through PharmiCare, BEG spray, and VIP treatment. As we are all at different phases of treatment, we had a chance to discuss our own experiences and where we are at in the process.
- We also discussed the fact that this is definitely a journey and not a quick process. Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes for this illness, and those of us that are farther along in the treatment process tried to provide insight into the length of time it actually takes while acknowledging the fact that we are all different with unique environments and other variables.
- One thing we all are very grateful for is to have a wonderful doctor that is helping us on this journey.
- We talked about the possibility of having a face-to-face meeting in the future. If this is something you would be interested in, stay tuned for further details as we are in the process of trying to find a suitable location to gather together.
- We also discussed the new forums available here on the Surviving Mold Illness website. This is a great place to ask questions, provide insight, or just get some encouragement along the way in your own personal journey. My hope is that this will become a thriving community of people that will help and support each other as we all strive to regain our health and learn how to live in this new reality. This is a great place to get support in between our regular telephone support meetings or for those of you that due to scheduling issues are not able to join us for our telephone meetings.
