December 2015

Support Group Meeting – Sat, Dec 12th – 1-3 pm at Green Lake Library

This meeting we will have a Friends & Family Potluck.

This will be a fun time and a great opportunity to show our appreciation for those who help and care for us as well as a chance for our loved ones to learn more about vestibular disorders and the challenges of living with chronic dizziness and imbalance.  We’ll invite friends and family to share their perspective with us and give them the opportunity to ask questions so that they might better understand what we’re going through and how to offer support to us.  We’ll also plan to discuss ways to survive and enjoy the holiday season with a chronic illness.

Please bring something yummy to share for a light potluck lunch.

(Note:  There are no kitchen facilities).

Bring your friends and family.  Or, come by yourself.  No guests required.
