Hello! My fiancee has really bad pustular psor, but I am not sure if he is open to a support group...I think it would be really good for him because he feels like a "freak" all the time. Shoot, I could use a support group too! LOL....I hate seeing him in all this pain! He feels like a freaking guinea pig all the time. Anyone who is interested, e-mail me and I will see if mabye I can't convince him.

I live in the Brandon area

Annie, I am in the Tampa area very often, my family is there. Give me a more specific date and we can plan and scheme!!! :)

Support group in Tampa would be awesome, I could occasionally come (I am 6 hrs away, but I make the trip often).
