    Meet ups/groups for people with same condition

    There used to be a page where you could be put in touch with people with the same condition as you, does anyone know if that service is still available?

    Thank you.

    There are no such pages available at the moment, although there are many Face thingy groups and the like out there. There is also the possibility of just writing a post indicating your type of MD in the heading and asking folk to message you. Certainly worth a try.
    Cat may well pop up here and offer more in depth advice as she is a wiz with that sort of knowledge.

    Link below is for MDUK peer support. I no longer seems to show phone number but if you call the main helpline they may be able to link you with group in your area.

    Peer support

    People and places to help you

    As mike says there is a few Facebook groups.

    Breathe with MD – for respiratory issues
    Living with MD
    woman with MD
    Pathfinders – for Duchene MD

    MDUK Trailblazers- a group for under 30s.

    and a variety of condition specific like my own. Which is a CMD group and most specifically rigid Spine SEPn1

    Whats your Type of MD?
    Roughly where are you in UK?
