  1. hey guys, this speech i just wrote sounded so good i had to forward it to everyone--one of my finest rants ever! Love, Greg -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subj: Re: [acnescarsupport] Re: Looking for some insights re non-ablative lasers Date: 3/16/2004 7:28:21 PM Eastern Standard Time From: [email protected] To: [email protected] hey lydia , sorry had to split early Sunday--glad you had fun
  2. hey guys, we just had a girl named Mauri come down from Philly to attend our meeting last Sunday--she had a blast--but i don't want her drivin 3 hours for 1 hour of fun--- here's her email: [email protected] ok-that's 3? 4? Philly people just here on this board alone--there are many more out there--go get 'm and start supportin' also, forgot to mention-i also faxed my 1-page flyer to all the derms/plastic surgeons in the DC area so they would know about my group... see ya
  3. hey guys, we've had over 100 people attend our group meetings-not all at once but counting all those that physically came to the meetings--we had over 300 emails saying "i'm coming" but they never showed, so yes--people are reluctant to come *at first* but once they get the nerve to come the first time(granted--it's pretty scary) they're hooked--so there *is* interest... no meeting agenda--just "look what i had done and it cost me a bucket of money and it did nothing" or "look what i did to
  4. hey guys, i run a group for scarring here in DC and i get lotta emails saying "gee i wish there was a group where i live".... how about starting a message category called "support groups"? and you post a question like "Myrtle Beach,SC?" or wherevevr you live and let it snowball from there---running a support group is just like hosting a party--it's that simple--we meet in a restaurant but it could be somoene's house, coffeeshop, whatever-- our scar group meets in person so we can *see* wh

  6. hey guys, just reminding folks about our real-life(YIKES!) meetings --next one is this Sunday March 14th at 1PM in Tysons Corner,VA....got a girl comin down from Philadelphia to see us--anyone else from Philly?? --just wondering cuz rather than this poor girl travel 4 hours down to DC she & rest of you Philly-ites could start a real-life group up there??--just a thought... i'll be singing the praises of do-it-yourself TCA CROSS --- waaaay better,faster,cheaper than doing excisions f
  7. hey guys, i am curious too--i run a support group for scarring here in D.C. and smoothbeam is something we're waiting to see if it's worth the money--i think it's worth a shot---Tina Alster, Cheryl Burgess are both D.C. scar docs who are using it for acne scarring with good results.... if you have deep icepick scars TCA CROSS is the way to go... if you guys are feelin' brave we'd love to have you join at our next meeting this Sunday March 14th in Tysons Corner,VA--we meet at Clyde's resta
  8. hey guys, just reminding folks about our real-life(YIKES!) meetings --next one is Sunday March 14th at 1PM in Tysons Corner,VA.. i'll be singing the praises of do-it-yourself TCA CROSS --- waaaay cheaper than doing excisions for icepick scars-- if you're feelin' nervy we'd love to have you join us! here's our group's website: www.geocities.com/grege20815/washdcacnescarsupportgrp.html Thanks, Greg
  9. hey there, i emailed you our group's flyer--use it as a "template" to get your group going--we meet in a restaurant but you could meet in someone's home, a church, coffeshop--anyplace really.... you'll be surprised just how many people are *waiting* for "someone" to start a group in their town...BE THAT SOMEONE! another great acne scar boards: www.voy.com/10956/ www.yestheyrefake.net www.faceforum.com www.acne-site.com www.lasertreatments.com good luck! Greg
  10. hey dude, you don't have the necesary social/leadership skills? huh? what? YES YOU DO! all it takes is posting a message on the various acne boards(there's a hundred on the web) and a freebie print ad in your local paper--they list support groups for free--all done via email--you don't have to say a word--pick a local bar/restaurant/church/whatever and *poof* --instant support group--email me and i'll show you our group's flyer that has all the details-- I have no special leadership talent
  11. hey dan & all, your wonderful site has a message board for every thing to do with acne except the dating issue--we've had 4 romances blossom out of our real-life support group meetings for scarring here in Wash., D.C.---which tells me there's a need for people with acne & particularly scarring, to meet other singles with the same probs? how about creating a message board for that? not as insane as it sounds--lotta skin disorder websites like www.vitiligosupport.com have a "dati
  12. hey guys, just reminding people about our real-life(YIKES!) support group for acne scarring--our focus is primarily on *fixing* our scars--what works, what doesn't--but an obvious "side effect" of our group is getting to talk/see others that are in the same boat....i.e.,emotional/phsyc support-- we meet monthly in a dimly-lit restaurant:-) if you'd like to join us send me an email and i'll send you a flyer with all the details... Thanks Greg [email protected]
  13. hey guys, does anyone know where/how to buy this stuff online so ican try the TCA CROSS thing--- i know i should probably have a doc do it but after $20 grand spent on scar repair i consider myself an expert on scar repair:-) Thanks! Greg
  14. hey gang, we're having another real-life(YIKES!!) support group meeting this Sunday Dec.7th to stare at each other's scars;-) and discuss the latest scams versus stuff that actually works,etc.... hope you can join us! Greg [email protected]
