Because the LA area is large, especially when considering traffic congestion, I have found myself wishing there were a support group in Orange County even further south than Fullerton. Every 20 minutes makes a difference for me when it comes to driving, and I'm guessing that's true for most PWNs.
I decided to start a support group to work IN TANDEM with other area groups (Rachelle's LA group and Dr. White's Fullerton group). In other words, I will make efforts to schedule meetings on dates not already scheduled in LA or Fullerton. Also, I'm hoping that as the OC group grows, we can organize carpools to the LA/Fullerton meetings. I do WAY better driving in congested stop-and-go traffic if I have others to converse with in the vehicle!
Please join if you are within a comfortable distance of Fountain Valley/Huntington Beach. Depending on the location of the majority of the group's members, we can hold meetings further south in Irvine or further east in Orange, etc.
Information and dates for meetups is available on Meetup.com at
P.S. To set expectations, I am a very organized person BUT I'm a PWN with limited energy and financial distress (hence the option to chip in towards the fee to set up a group with Meetup.com). I'm just doing the best I can to make connections available and would definitely welcome any assistance and/or friendly suggestions.
