We know that having MS chat rooms available can mean the difference between staring at four walls all day or living in almost total isolation for many. We know this because for Cir they have been a godsend.
Well we have a new forum - The Link II, and there's a chat room there as well. Please contact us if you have any questions or problems.
Also, here is a clock to help with setting up meeting times. Perhaps if you add a time when you'll be on the chat room, others may be able to show up. Just post a time when you'll be online and check back to see if others are there. Hope this helps.
He went from one day being an active member in the workforce to having nothing to do for the entire day. Thankfully one of his sales positions had been in electronics. Way before he stopped working, we had been introduced to computers and the internet.
He learned the ins and outs of the internet and from an early age our children have had this technology in their lives. I jumped in with both feet and eventually learned how to use the computer to make a little extra money on Ebay.
The internet has linked us all in such a way that we are no longer isolated from the world. Through the internet, the world has become a smaller place. A place where people who in years past would have never known one another.
The chat room and specifically the MS chat room, is a place where people like you with a disability can find others like yourselves. A place where you can share tips on how you cope, the medicines you take, and how you live in spite of your MS.
In an MS chat room you can choose to meet daily or as often as you are able. But the best thing about them, is the fact that you have somewhere to go. Even if it is on-line.
For those who still want to work, but work outside the home is not possible because of MS, computers are the perfect solution. An MS chat room is a good place to start, by finding out what others are doing.
In addition to our chat room, here is a list of some very good chat rooms that have been around for awhile. Cir was a moderator for one and helped start another, which he has since stepped down from a management position.
We urge you to try our new forums and chat room. Join and participate. When you find a good fit, make friends. You don't need to live in isolation if you aren't able to move about like you did in the past.
If you've reached the bottom, here's the list of other forums and chat rooms again. Enjoy!
