First off, I apologize for taking so long to get back to you all about chat night. I've been 'down' for a while and I'm just getting back on my feet again. That said...

After looking at the responses about chat night I'm going ahead with Tuesday nights but will move the time back 1 hour. So the times look like this:

Pacific Time (west coast of US) - 5PM
Mountain Time - 6PM
Central Time - 7PM
Eastern Time - 8PM
Hawaii Time - 2PM
Alaska Time - 4PM

Never been to a chat room? See the blue bar above with lots of choices on it.
*On the right side one of the choices is 'Chat'.
*Click 'Chat' and a small window will open. You can move the window around, stretch the size, however you like it.
* Step 1 We're meeting in the Chronic Pain room so first choose that one.
* Step 2 Login
* Step 3 Click 'Login'

Once you are in the chat room it's easy.
*The upper left square shows what everyone is saying/typing.
*Right below this box is a line that says 'Message'. This is where you type. When you are done typing hit enter on your keyboard or 'Send' on the screen.
*The upper right square shows who's in the room currently.
*The lower right square shows all of the rooms available and how many people are in that room. You can switch to other rooms simply by clicking on one any time you like.
*When you are done remember to log out otherwise it will show that you are still in there for quite a while. Here's how. On the line where it says 'Message', go all the way to the right until you get to the question mark. Back up one and click that icon. That will log you out.

Never be afraid to ask questions, even if you're not new. We all were new once and sometimes we just forget. No one will mind helping you. We will have chat night every Tuesday unless announced otherwise. The first night's topic will be Pain or Lack of Pain since most, not all, conditions involve pain in some way.

Years ago I hosted chat nights for several years and we always seemed to have a good time. If the chosen topic wasn't going well then we can change it to whatever those present want. Also, please offer suggestions for topics you'd like to have addressed. Once in a while we'll have a topic that is totally 'off topic'..... as in some topic that has nothing to do with health and has everything to do with fun. We all need to remember how to laugh.

We usually run about an hour but come and stay as long as you like. If you get there late come on in anyway. We're very flexible. I hope to see lots of you there every Tuesday.

Warmly,
Chutz

We had a wonderful time in the chat room tonight. Met some new people, got reacquainted with others. We talked about the source of pain, our families who also have chronic illness/pain and our pets. How can we not share funny stories about our dogs and cats???

Hope you all can join us next Tuesday night for another evening of 'me time'. Time when you do something just for yourself.

Warmly,

Was finally able to log into the chat and had a great time!

Chutz, thanks so much for taking the time to pull this together!

Hopefully, more will join in next week.

And I really blew it. Been dealing with massive headaches. Today was hubby's birthday so fixed a special dinner, made a cake, wrapped some presents and by then chat was over. I'm so sorry I promised to be there and let you all down. In years of doing chat nights that's only the second time I've not made it.

I'm glad you went on without me which is just what you should do. And even better, you had a good time. One of the goals of chat night is even though we may be talking about our conditions. it redirects out mind and we think about others, remember how to laugh and take some time just for us. Often we forget to do that. I know I have a problem doing something just for me.

I will see you all next week...promise.

Chutz, don't be so upset about missing chat. Sure, we would have loved it if you had made it in, but we're all still getting used to the schedule and you had quite a full day!

Hope it was a Happy Birthday and you both enjoyed your dinner and cake!

Thanks, pitmom. I needed to hear that. Been beating myself up ever since. I'm one of those where if you make a mistake it's OK, but if I make a mistake it's Not OK. Not a good way to react.
