    I was diagnosed with MdDS in 2017. I live in Houston, TX. Would love to find support groups!

      Hi, LeClaire! I was diagnosed with MdDS in 2020. I’m in the Los Angeles area. Facebook has an amazing group that you can join where you can receive support, information and encouragement from others who suffer from this horrible condition. The group’s name is Mal de Debarquement Syndrome-MdDS Friends. Everyone is kind and understanding and it has helped me through some anxious times in dealing with the symptoms. Best of luck!
