Happy Thursday and time for Chat Night tonight. Below are instruction on getting to the chat room and how to join in. If you need more help you can either read the Help Manual or ask any of the moderators or start a new post. We're always glad to help if you need it. We were all first timers at one time or another. :-)

So, grab a warm beverage tonight and join us in the Chronic Pain chat room for some enjoyable chat and friendship. We start at 6 PM Pacific, 9 PM Eastern time USA. It's casual and more like an open house so drop in and stay as long as you like. I'm usually there for about 2 hours but you may stay all night if you'd like... shocked

See you in chat!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you are new and are not sure how to get to the chat rooms here are the directions....

To get to the chat room you just click on the words/button CHAT or CHAT ROOMS. Both will take you to the same place. Where are those words/buttons? Above the Topics list where all of the discussions are listed is a button that says "NEW TOPIC". Going up some more are a line of words that read

Forum Rules | Help Manual | Chat Rooms | Moderators | Volunteer
You can just click on the word Chat Rooms and there you are! Or you can go up one more line and come to a thin blue bar. On that bar, is:

Log Off | Control Panel | Home | Calendar | Chat | Search | Members | Help
Just click on the word CHAT and it also takes you to the chat room menu.

Once the pop-up Chat window opens go through the steps. From the drop down menu choose the Chronic Pain chat room. Once chosen you then do step #2 and log in. Then you will see the chat screen in that window. You just start typing in the small window at the bottom of the viewing area (where everyone's words show up) Below where you type is an option you can click on to view the Chat rules and help.

If you can't get the chat window to open make sure you allow a pop-up. If you have it blocked you will not be able to do chats. On Firefox/Mozilla browser it will tell me at the top of the screen that it's blocked and allow me to let this one place open a pop-up.

I hope this helps and we’ll see you there....

I won't be able to make it tonight sad. I have to have all of my wisdom teeth taken out this afternoon, as I developed a really nasty infection over the last week & the oral surgeon says they have to go! I much rather be chatting with all of you!!!

Thanks Char, Dani, & Chutzie! :-)

I'm home! The surgery itself was a piece of cake. I was awake but lightly sedated & numbed. It took about an hour. The funny thing is that I didn't even feel him take out the bottom two, which were the ones that were impacted & infected, but I definitely felt the top two come out & they were almost completely grown in. I guess the doc wasn't able to get part of one of the roots of the lower teeth out, though. He said he'd probably cause nerve damage if he went looking for it, so he left it. Supposedly it will heal over just fine & shouldn't be a problem.

I'm feeling pretty good right now, but that because I'm nice & numb still (although it made swallowing the penicillin was quite interesting). I'm sure in a couple of hours it will be another story though, so I still think tonight is a no-go for me. I hope everyone has fun in the chat!

hugs to all,
Skeye

Wonderful news, Skeye! Just one reminder that I'm sure you're more aware of that me...keep ahead of the pain with your medication they gave you. It takes less medication to keep it in check than to let it get out of control and try to bring the pain level down again.

You get some rest and no puter tonight young lady...lol

Skeye,
 
I had all of mine yanked out in the Navy. Be careful nothing gets stuck in the holes. My stitches popped open and a piece of rice got jammed in one of the holes. Nasty nasty! I hope it's not to rough tonight. Get well soon.
