The Myositis Association is excited to introduce a new program for care partners called Talking Circles.

Taking care of yourself is one of the most important things you can do as a care partner. Self care not only helps you feel better, but it gives you more energy and a more positive attitude that will help you cope better with the challenges of taking care of your loved one.

A Talking Circle is a network of myositis care partners who connect by phone or email as a way to give and receive emotional support. Like TMA Support Groups, Talking Circles are a safe place where care partners can feel free to share feelings without judgement, give information about self-care, and share tips, strategies, devices, and resources that can help you in the daily care of your loved one.

Everyone copes better when they feel supported, heard, and understood.

To sign up or for additional information, please contact TMA.
