My problem with my local support group is that it is not designed to be supportive of its members. Instead it is designed to be supportive of the business that offers the meeting place. Our job is to sample her food, tell her how wonderful the food is and how wonderful she is for being a gluten-free business, and then go tell everyone about her business. I understand that this is how many supports groups start, but it is annoying how clear the message is. We really can't ever give honest reviews of her products. She also spends a lot of time trashing every other gluten-free business around. Real issues are ignored, but everyone knows which kinds of gluten-free baking she's doing that month. She is a real self-promoter who acts as though she knows more than she does.
