PWMS chat ! - Update

Can't sleep? Have nothing to do? We will be in chat New Years eve. Join us !

We are going to start the year off with a Women Only Chat and Men Only Chat.  Held in different rooms, both on Mondays at 7PM EST till 9PM EST.  First chat will be January 2nd 2006. 7PM EST till 9PM EST. We are picking a topic this time. If you have any ideas for topic chats, please let us know.

The topic this week is MS and relationships.  Everybody has a relationship. Be it with a spouse loved one, friends, pets, employer. Let's talk about it! Is it going good, or do you have problems just dealing with the outside world? Can you offer any advice to anyone who may have questions that have to do with this topic? Join in, lets help each other


Flu season!

When in doubt see a Doctor 

Get plenty of rest! 

Drink plenty of fluids... not fluids that dehydrate you! Such as coffee tea!

Be very careful of over the counter drugs! Read the labels carefully even cough drops can be harmful.

Something you may want to ask your Doctor about. Do they have a Pneumonia shot! Yes they do and many of us have to ask if we need one. Most Doctors don't ask us.

OUR MISSION

Our objective is to provide an informal, supportive site for people seeking on-line information about  Multiple Sclerosis.  We aren't doctors, we aren't experts.  We just live it everyday.  We formed this site to share what we have learned, provide a focal point for exchange of information,  and give back to the community. 

Support is a very big word when it comes to MS.  Doctors can only tell you so much during an office visit.  Leaving unanswered questions, concerns and issues.  People with any disease can often learn best from each other.  To this end we provide a chat forum to share information and suggestions, posting of the latest news, and links to authoritative sources of information. 

There are many informative sites out there.  Visit them all!  You can never have enough information.  We do not intend to compete with any other sites.  Like coffee shops, each has it's own unique atmosphere and clientele.  There can never be enough of them.  

Our chat is open for anything that has to do with MS. Some topics are not pleasant. But need to be talked about. If you have a problem, no matter what it is, chances are there is someone in chat that can help you. The one thing that PWMS will not accept is being laughed at for any MS problem. We expect all chatters to be considerate of others. 

We have appointed Jeffs and JackIL has room administrators. They have been using the chat. They walked through the set up with us. They can help you if you need help. 

Please help us remember to ask all chatters to sign the guest book.  It's our only way of sending them our  news letter.
