Looking For Support Group

6 posts in this topic

I am looking for a support group in southeast Kansas. I am down around Pittsburg, Kansas, also fairly close to Joplin, Missouri. If there are no known groups in my area, how would I go about starting one?

I checked out those areas, and the closest one is a three hour drive. I need something I can actually get to.

I am in the same situation as you, each one of those groups is at the very least an hour away from Emporia. I really wish I had a group closer to me, but for now I get my support from online groups. I don't have any other choices right now. Someday I hope to be closer to meetings, so I can attend or just start my own group!! Best wishes.

Yes I am in the same boat, one of the support groups in my area is also 1 1/2 hour away but I think it will be worth the drive. Good luck to the both of you on finding one or starting one.

Since it is estimated that 1 in 133 people actually have celiac disease, you'd think there would be a support group in every town of over 5000 people. What a shame the diagnosis rate is not up to par. How many people does that make walking around with celiac disease that are totally unaware they have it? Sad.
