"My studies in this area lead me to a very uncomfortable conclusion: Our citizens would be far better off if we removed all the psychotropic drugs from the market, as doctors are unable to handle them. It is inescapable that their availability creates more harm than good." - Peter Gøtzsche, MD; Co-f…

R You A Writer?
M. C. Violet Taylor, CPS
February 4, 2014
LMECC is looking for people interested in forming a writers group to meet regularly. The focus of the group will be decided by the people who want to attend. This group would include writers willing to add sparkle and expanded vocabulary to the meetings, no doubt. Having puns fun would be on the agenda, too!
I imagine this would be a sociable writer-founded and writer-run group.
If you’re interested, please contact [email protected] or give us a call at 703.461.3886

What Does Support Look Like?
M. C. Violet Taylor, CPS
February 4, 2014
Support looks like a smile, a wink or a hug. Support sounds like the words, “I understand,” and it can also be the sound of your own laughter! Lots of understanding, smiles and laughter rang out from our weekly support group on February 1, 2014. We have new shared leadership with a different, interesting and very kind approach thanks to Ms. J.
A peer from Culpepper, Ms. B., visited. She is a terrific recovery champion from out in the country. We warmly welcome all new folks from any area!
Our topics covered nutrition, sugar use and plans for a writer’s group; if you have a topic you’re interested in discussing, let us know. If you’re interested, would like to visit, or bring a topic please contact [email protected] or give us a call at 703.461.3886
