Congrats! It seems like 90% of group members never do make it.

You can do anything and be anything, in fact you can become a banana!

Congratulations. I love support groups. The first time I attended a meeting I had a mild panic attack but it got better after that. I still get a little nervous before I speak but it's great to feel the anxiety fade away to nothing the more I talk. Support groups are great to vent to people, and they never judge. Another great thing about support groups is I get to work on my exposure therapy regarding public speaking.

And wet she rose from the lake, and fast and fleet went she
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body

And loud, long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly did he ride
Saying "Course well, my brindled hound, and fetch me the jet black mare
Stoop and strike, my good grey hawk, and bring me the maiden fair"

That's awesome, OP! What kind of support group did you go to? Was it the NAMI one or another organization? I used to facilitate a NAMI group, and I think support groups are just such a great way to help encourage others.
