I already know they should stay home! Seeking support group
March 26, 2020 12:44 PM   Subscribe

Seeking and online support group for people whose relatives at higher risk are ignoring COVID-19 advice, refusing to self-isolate, etc.

What I'm looking for:
I have relatives with multiple risk factors who refuse to isolate (not in my household). I'd like to find some sort of text based chat group or board where I can talk with others in the same situation. Preferably not on Reddit, but still interested in resources on Reddit.

What I'm not looking for:
I'm not looking for any sort of paid group that meets at a certain time with a professional.

I'm not seeking articles with tips on how to talk to relatives.

Not looking for admonishments that the older relatives need to stay home. I am isolating but cannot control the decisions of other adults.

some chapters of Codependent's Anonymous are hosting online meetings. I strongly suspect that the exact conversation you are needing is happening in those spaces.

Following this with interest, as I'm feeling this stress too. If you don't come across any groups and just want to co-vent, feel free to PM me!
