Hi Lilly,
I agree.  Someone mentioned this to me a few weeks ago, but I have never been able to access it.  I have disabled just about everthing on my laptop, but something within my firewall blocks my access.  I have tried everything and have pretty much given up!!

One time I went on the A/P chat and it was the most ridiculous thing I ever did. Nobody was talking about their life or their struggles, they were just being silly. I got turned off but would be willing to try again.

We have tried to have scheduled chats but have had little participation. Not sure if it is just the nature of our disease or what. As to the chat rooms, they are open for anyone anytime and alot of the time people are in the rooms chating as an escape from their disease rather than focusing on it. The scheduled chats usually have more focus on the issues associated with our disease. If there is a desire to have Depression forum scheduled chats, I would be more than happy to set them up again.

We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

I would love to participate too.  What do yall think of scheduling a time and designating it as our "on line meeting"?
