Welcome to the GD message board. First thing, we do have a support group in Iowa. It is in Dubuque. The leaders name is Darlene Kirch and her phone number is 319-588-2031. Give her a call. I am glad you found us and wanted to share your experience. Sometimes when I look at all the messages I get down in the dumps. Most of the times I see a message like yours and it lifts my spirits. It reminds all of us who answer the mail and run the support groups why we do this. I have a few folks in my group I will send your message to in my next newsletter to my local group. Your letter fits one person very well. Denial is not a good thing. Glad to see you are doing what you need to, to get better. Let us know how you are doing. As you can see you have friends here who understand and have been there. Bless you bless you bless you. Keep reading and keep writing.
Regards, Jake on-line support group facilitator for the NGDF
