We are a support group that provides a positive environment, listen to each other & offer feedback, education, and awareness to share with family & friends, invites professionals in the fields to enlighten us on breakthrough with meds,  Physical therapist to share good everyday exercises, etc. I would want to get feedback from the group on topics and be the catalyst to try to get the answers or guest to talk to us.   We want to help expand the reach of the Live Yes! Connect Group in the Jacksonville area and get to know more amazing people to connect, share and learn with.

Just joined this group.  Is this group active in any way?  Do any events ever get planned?  My doctor thinks I may have gout but is unable to definitively diagnose me at this time.  Just feeling my way through this and seeing what's out there.
