Hi everyone :) I have been attending a weekly support group for about a month or so... It is specifically for Depression and Bipolar. I really enjoy the people; and I really do well in this type of environment. (I used to attend another in a different state.) I am very aware people are entitled to their privacy and don't need to participate if they don't want to. However, only about a third of us give our opinion, share our experiences and allow ourselves to be vulnerable. I believe that's what a support group is all about! Am I expecting too much from this type of group? My concern is that it is a very reputable Support Alliance, and there aren't many in my area.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you
