I used this forum for the first time today and it helped me enormously. I would like to meet people in the chat room to create an informal support group - people who can talk to each other about whatever is getting them down or up on a given day. I live in Abu Dhabi and have no MS support network at all - Ive got a neurologist who writes me prescriptions and he has a really good nurse but neither of them are available in the way an MS specialist and an MS nurse would be back home. I found today that by having a chat with the MS helpline and exchanging a few messages in the forum, my spirits were lifted and I got things back in perspective. Ive got a mild flu, after having a monster hang over and I have felt like crap for four days. end of story. Ill be better in a couple of days.
Take care and let me know if you would like to form a group.
