This support group has been the saving grace for many of the members here, including myself. It's a support, wonderful community where people truly care about helping each other.

This is the first time that I have felt welcome at/on one of these Internet support groups. I feel like I have come home. This is a wonderful group of truly caring people. I've tried other supposed online "support" groups and they usually end up with bickering and fighting and not even dealing the issue at hand. I have learned more about my disease in the short time I have been here than in the last 15 months. I am now more at ease because I feel I have a place to go for answers to any of my questions, no matter how silly they might be. Sincerely, I thank you all." - "Welcome to the group!!

He was very interested in our support group and took the address  as did the GP. both said they would go on line." - "I was careful to stay good and hydrated. Dehydration will, and has put me in the hospital, quite a few times. But, thank God, and our wonderful Addison'sDisease.Net.. Family!  It has been a long time since I have gone to the hospital for that reason. You and our caring members shared their experiences and their knowledge willingly on so many important ways to help stay in balance and to manage my Addison's. I have learned so much and would love to chat with anyone on something that I may have already experienced after 13.5 years since developing AD." - "The <name of site redacted> site is the same and all they do is discuss the weather and that's not supportive so I am supportive to them but don't receive back this is the only site you feel the love from and can give love back (thank you)"
