      You will find a number of posts on the Aussie site regarding the support group meetings at the Mercy. They are usually on the first tuesdays of Sept, Dec, March and June.
      If you would like further information just let me know. Or, you could go back on some previous threads here on the Aussie forum.
      To find these threads, go to the 'Australia' forum and scroll down to the bottom left side where it says 'display options' and change 'from the' to 'one year' and all the previous threads will come up. You will see many more threads which may be of interest to you as well as the support group meetings.
      Where are you in Victoria? The meetings are held during the day which is a problem for those of us who work. However, we have let it be known that a few evening meeting here and there would be helpful. That reminds me that it is about time to suggest that idea again!
