PWMS chat ! - Update
We are happy to say chat has been busier! For some of us the colder weather is here. If anyone would like to help us out with chat, please join in. We need to have someone in chat much more in the winter months. People stay in when the weather is bad. It's nice to have someone to talk to. If you going to chat even once a week, make it a chat you host! We would love to share the chat with others. It costs to keep the chat running; its not a free chat for us. We welcome use by anyone who wants to use it. Want just a woman's night in chat? Or a man's night? We can do this if you host a chat. Why not invited friends in and use it ?
It's flu time again. Any tips and tricks on treating it? Or avoiding it ? Share with us, we will post your tips and tricks in the next news letter. Do we have to be careful with over the counter medications for colds? Is there a option or alternative for a flu shot? Share your thoughts and insights.
If you are dealing with unhappy holiday's for what ever reason, pop into chat to get support ideas. Things to do so it can be dealt with easier.
Red and I have chatted with many MSer's over the year's and our own opinion is that stress is a food for MS :( Avoiding it as much as possible seems to minimize M.S. related consequences.
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.
About Them smiley's and soundies...
We're always on the lookout for cute little graphics or images, that people can pop up in chat by typing a single word, like Hugs, Kisses, Frowns, etc... Or neat sounds we have only been able to type before. If you see something special send it to us please. Images should be in the common .gif or .jpg format, and smaller than 24k. If not too much bigger, we may be able to adjust it to fit. Sounds need to be the same 24K size, and preferably in .au format. We may also be able to convert from more popular formats, such as .wav.
