  • support group in Jacksonville, Fl

    Does anyone know of a support group for the Jax area? Or does anyone in the area want to start a group? I am not sure how that is done, but I could sure use some support.
    Thanks, Tina C. grouphug angel

    Hi Tina! I think there may be a support group somewhere up there, not sure if it's in your area. I'm sure there are other ICers up your way. I hope you get/find a group. Kathi grouphug
