Chronic Pain Chat Night
October 7th, 2010
 
 
If you are new and/or 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 for this particular site. 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.

Start time is 6 PM Pacific Time and 9 PM Eastern time N. America. Come and go as you like. It’s informal and we operate like an open house evening.
 
Hope to see you there!

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

     I would like to thank all of you who were able to make it to chat night. We had a lot of fun. We met some new people tonight as well and I hope they can stop by the forum and say," Hello! ".
 
     Our topics for the early part of the evening centered around Pain and Hobbies. We learned a lot about the many aspects of photography & Crochet. I noticed that each of us had hobbies we used to enjoy doing before pain but that we all found hobbies that we could do in spite of pain. Some of us spending years and years perfecting our crafts and trades.
 
     The later topic was pain and communication. We all learned how each of us communicate our pain levels to our families. What I found most interesting how different each of us approach our loved ones when it comes to pain. Some of us understate our pain. Some of us communicate freely about our levels. But we all want and need is for our families to "understand" that we are struggling at times.
 
     When we began speaking about communication with our doctors about our pain, again I noticed we all had vastly different approaches. Some felt their doctors didn't even hear their words, while others didn't need to say anything as their needs were plainly understood. I couldn't help but wonder why there wasn't an "angies list" of doctors who care and take a personal approach to medicine.
 
    So, that was just some of the highlights of the evening. I had a great time tonight and look forwards to next week!
 
     !!Oh!! Before I forget, if you noticed this weeks "chat night reminder" had a pole attached to it. There will be a poll attached to the "reminder" each week. The "topics" will be rotated in and out each week. So, if you can, please stop by and vote on the topic. Even if you do not think you can make it to chat night, we still value your input!
