I went to a melanoma support group meeting tonight with Rich. We have been trying to go since he was diagnosed but something always seemed to come up on that one day a month.
Maybe I should have waited to post until I was able to describe better how it felt to be there. All I can put into words right now is that it felt really, really good to be in the same room with people who understand.
I was a little nervous about walking into a room full of strangers but I was comfortable as soon as I went in. People shared openly with one another and I felt like I was part of the group.
I hadn’t met any of them before but I felt like they somehow knew me better than many people who have known me for years. Such a great feeling and such a wonderful group of people.
