    Thank you for posting about support groups and classes. These are very important to the healing process. For those who cannot attend these in-person classes, here is a great resource for online support groups:
    http://www.dailystrength.org

    DailyStrength has over 500 communities of people posting about all kinds of life challenges and medical issues from depression, divorce, diabetes, and bereavement. Just an extra resource to throw out there for folks who aren't yet comfortable sharing ideas in a live group.
