Hi Deemarie,

I'm just up the road from you in Maine. I live pretty far north on the coast near Searsport. Unfortunately, there are no support groups up here, but there may be a group down in Portland. I'll do a little investi-googling tomorrow, and if I find a group, I'll post the information here in this thread.

Rob

PS-Welcome to WHL!

I looked at a variety of sources, but as I suspected, there are still no Lupus support groups anywhere in Maine. I'd have thought that Portland would have a group by now, but there's none. We're too sparsely populated and too spread out I suppose. That's actually why I ended up here at WHL.

Anyway, the Mass. support groups Saysusie listed are probably your best bet for a face to face group.

In regards to Machias, it's not far from me at all, only about 75 miles up the coast from where I live. It's a small world!

Thanks rob, I'm surprised Portland doesn't have anything either, or Manchester or dartmouth! Idk if I'll be able to make it to mass, so I guess this will be my support group! It is a small world! He grew up there his whole life, dug clams and worked on lobster boats from the time he could walk!

Hey Deemarie!
I'm in Southern NH, too. Haven't looked much into support groups yet, but it looks as though you've done your research and there isn't much of anything. I'm probably near you, maybe we could connect!
