New Support Group for West Midlands

Postby lmason7 » Sun Apr 28, 2013 10:03 pm

Hi all,

My name is Lou Mason and I would like to inform you all about my intention to set up and lead a support group in the West Midlands for women like myself with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. The group will cover the following areas: Birmingham, Solihull and Warwickshire. I have recently had experience of successfully raising the profile of PCOS at Heart of England Foundation Trust where I had a meeting with a senior Consultant and Senior Manager for Gynaecology there. I was also put in touch with and had an extensive meeting with a clinician whose specialism is PCOS and has expressed a genuine desire to help as many women with PCOS as possible. Alongside this I have also set up a Facebook group for women with PCOS and also their family/friends who support them - and in particular their partners who may find this useful. If you are interested in joining this local support group and/or the Facebook group then please forward your details to Holly via the support group email address on the Verity website who can then pass on your details to my email address. I will then reply to you as soon as possible with further information.
Many thanks
Lou

Hi Lou,

I am in the central Birmingham area, willing to meet up. I e-mailed Holly and she advised me to reply to your post on here.

Thanks,

Hi Lou,

I live in Warwickshire and work in Birmingham, so any of the suggested locations would be good for me. I'd be keen to meet up. Have you and Nicoletta started a group already? Can I join?

Thanks,

Sarah

Anyone local enough to Coventry and interested in participating in a research trial that addresses the underlying metabolic issues behind PCOS? Please PM me - they are desperately short of volunteers and the study seems very worthwhile to me.

Fingers crossed I can generate some interest.

Hi

It's Lou. I know it has been an incedibly long time!! Not long after I decided to set up my own PCOS Support group I was diagnosed with Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder -fortunately completely unrelated to PCOS. Anyway I have been and still am severely unwell so am no longer in a position to set up a group like this. Also following my experiences of the mental health system this is something that I want and indeed need to focus on for the future. I am so sorry I could not get back to you much sooner and I apologise for what turned out to be a bit of a dead end for you! I hope you are doing ok?

Take care

Lou

Oh Lou - you take good care!

Ladies - if you are still interested in a Midlands based group, our Coventry group is going well.

We meet once a month alternating between a morning coffee and a night out. We had a lovely meet up for coffee this morning.

Do PM me if you'd like to join our Private Facebook group and get to know the girls.

Kate xXx
