PWMS chat ! - Update
Its been quiet in chat! Come join us. It's getting cooler here now so Red and I will be in chat more. If anyone has ideas as to how we can make chat more enjoyable, please share them with us. We share any new MS news that anyone has discovered in chat. We also share personal experiences on our M.S. challenges. Sometimes BIG challenges. We can't forget that everyone in our chat needs to vent at one point or another. Listening is the best thing you can do for a friend. So be patient, supportive, and stay out of the ballistic trajectory.
PWMS Welcomes . . .
Any chatters touched by M.S. What this means is anyone with M.S., a family member of anyone with M.S., or simply a friend who wants to understand M.S.
PWMS & MS Bunch working together :)
MS Bunch has a great new message board! We would like to join together with them and use their message board. They are sending their members over to our chat. Let's team up and make use of both web sites. Some of us work, some of us just don't have enough energy to keep up with it all alone. We have noticed that when MSERs team up and work together on web sites, a message board, and chat that updated information flows more freely.
Vitamin B3 May Help MS
Vitamin B3 Protects Brain Cells -- Even in Late-Stage Multiple Sclerosis
While these results are just from mouse studies, they are encouraging. Better yet, B-3 is something people are already taking as a regular old vitamin. So there's a good track record; it's not some scary new chemical nobody has ever heard of. (more)
Early Results Promising for Oral MS Drug Fingolimod (FTY720)
Sept. 13, 2006 -- Patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis responded well to the experimental drug fingolimod, giving new hope for an oral MS drug, new research shows.
The findings are published in the latest New England Journal of Medicine.
If the drug is shown to be both effective and safe in larger and longer studies, it could soon offer MS patients something they have not had in the past -- an effective treatment that is taken in pill form, instead of by injection or infusion. (more)
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 Jeff, Rod 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.
