First support group



Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what to expect at my first support group before surgery I’m quite nervous as I’m very shy especially around people I don’t know. Any advice is appreciated.
Thank you, Marissa Moss

They might all be different but at mine everyone introduces themselves. After that, talking is optional. I am shy too and really enjoy support groups at over a year post op. You’ll be fine. 😀

@marissa

welcome newbie

many OP were quiet, shy for a bit - but once the "leader" started talking, everything went

smoothly - and people asked questions, she responded - back and forth. All went well,

and i was a better person afterwards🤣

good luck

The best thing is to keep an open mind and try to listen to what is said. You don't need to contribute anything but feel free to ask any question you might have, either to the group or after to the group leader. I always brought a pad and pen with me to take notes if there was something I wanted to clarify later or if someone said something i knew i should remember.
