No, not that sort of groupie, I never actually did that.
I mean that I was a person who spent a lot of time searching for support with my health challenges. Looking for support groups which might help me.
Once I got a PC and found the internet search engines I was away, looking all over the web for understanding, help and support which mostly hadn’t been readily available closer to home.
Needless to say I found quite a few. Sadly most of them were full of people venting, almost revelling in their illness and unhappiness. I did find one where people just posted things which made them laugh. I stuck with that one until it faded out of sight through lack of support.
On another I made a few friends and we shared our dips and up-agains with each other. This was pre Gupta for me.
In January 2010 I started the program. My recovery story is elsewhere, but my “grouping” had stopped because I had found what I was looking for.
Having been forced to stop working aged 53 due to CFS, I was later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as well. (With the added challenges of hypersensitivity to chemicals, smells, various foodstuffs, bright light, noise, etc.)
10 years later I found the Gupta Program and started my recovery. Wanting to pay back some small part of what I owe the Gupta Program I later volunteered to be a moderator in the Facebook Gupta Forum.
