Many with chronic bladder infections feel it’s the isolation that is the biggest emotional drain. By being part of a support group or forum, you have an outlet where you can post or talk and generally feel you are not an isolated outpost of one in a sea of wellness. These give you an opportunity to meet, chat and share. If you are struggling to get out of the house, perhaps you could host a local meet up so you feel in control and can show off those baking skills! These meet ups have created new friendships, compassion, confidence and understanding. You will be amazed at who lives in the same village, town or city as you and has a chronic infection. It all starts with a post on a support group or forum.
