What's new in chat ?

PWMS wants to welcome Nita. She is a interesting new chatter from Texas. Nita is in the military. Nita was diagnosed about one year ago. We look forward chatting with her. She said she's a talker. This is the place for her!

Bibbi has sent us family pictures. Her story will follow. 

Thanks so much Nita and Bibbi.

Jeff is having lots of fun hanging up side down. He has a new inversion table and we look forward hearing how it helps. We wish him lots of luck. 

If anyone needs information on how a baclofen pump works and helps, ask Dream. She would be more than happy to help.

Social Security Secrets. 

We took a look at this  website and were impressed with the scope of information provided. It's certainly difficult to explain all the ins and outs of SSDI, yet they made it relatively straightforward and accessible to regular folks. When it comes to Multiple Sclerosis and SSDI, things are anything but. It's just not one of those medical conditions where things are cut and dried; it depends on satisfying multiple additional medical criteria. Those specifics are undoubtedly well beyond, but this web site has succeeded in getting people to the starting point of MS specific considerations.

*** We Need Your Help * * *

Helping Chatters Get Into Chat

People continue to have difficulties getting into Dreamchat.  Tell us in detail what you have to do to a firewall, anti-virus program, or Pop-Up blocker program in order to get in.  If you had to upgrade your Windows or Internet Explorer Service Pack, tell us from what, to what.  We will start a page devoted to all the different problems people have had, and how they have overcome them, as a resource page for new chatters.

*** One major trouble people have been running into recently is with their Internet Security & Firewall Programs.  Holding down the CONTROL key while entering seems to cure the problem.  So give it a whirl if you get stuck at the log-in page. *** 

DreamChat Trivia (repeated by popular demand)

  • New to Dreamchat and wondering how to make those neat little smileys and pictures in the text? Easy, here's the Cheat Sheet:

:) Smile   :* Kiss

  • How do I copy and paste something?  Mark it as you usually would with the mouse.  Then use CTRL-C to copy it, and CTRL-v to paste it in the message window.

  • I'm a member.  I uploaded my avatar, and nothing happened.  What's up with that?  Even if your avatar is the specified 50 * 50 pixels, and no bigger than 15KB, there is no confirmation.  Apparently because DreamChat personnel review all permanent member's avatars to make sure they are acceptable.  (Whatever that means.)  If they are, they send back an approval in a day or so, and the next time you sign in, "poof" your new avatar appears.
