hi... i've looked many places for an active online caregiver's support group forum or chat room and can't find any. does anyone know of any? really needind some support... caring for a partner with stage 4 melanoma and when i'm working i'm a mental health therapist so need a space of my own. any suggestions appreciated. thanks!
lover of gardening, raising chickens, my horse & dogs. partner has stage 4 melanoma. life in a big transition! used to live in joshua tree but have to be in san diego for a while for more support. partner doing the Hoxsey method right now.
