Atlanta Support Groups | Death | Divorce | Cancer | Addictions

Sometimes you feel all alone, like no one else could understand even if they were interested. Sometimes you feel like you just want to be left alone; you don't WANT to "share"; you don't want that embarrassment; you can handle it by yourself; your problems will go away eventually. But, then they don't.

While drugs for depression can certainly help (do investigate this option with your doctor), sometimes the human factor can help even more.

Sometimes it is better NOT to use friends or family for support. (While they want to help, they often need support themselves in understanding and coping with your needs.)

There are support groups for just about anything. There are others out there who have either gone through or who are currently experiencing what you are dealing with. Just talking with one person, knowing you are NOT alone, can be healing.

If you'd like support dealing with a personal illness, or with a loved one's illness, start with the National Health Organization for your particular affliction. (In your Senior Resources Directory, you can find the local telephone numbers.)

If you'd like support dealing with grief, the death of a loved one, the counselors at funeral homes usually have a list of qualified people and groups.

If you're experiencing grief from another type of loss, such as a divorce, or even a career dream, there are professional grief counselors. Many times you can find informal groups in your local newspaper. (If you want to try one of these, it is best to let someone know where you are going.)

Whatever pain you are in, talking with another can help tremendously. If you can't manage finding a group yourself, that's a job a friend or family member CAN do for you.
