Hampshire Support

I would like to dedicate this group to finding like-minded people in the local area. I think many of you will agree that your struggles are less daunting if you have someone who understands you. About the group: My aim is to just get local people in touch with one another, maybe find some common ground. I would like to be able to set up meet ups eventually but hey, one step at a time! I hope that others will find some comfort here.
