We had a new chatter who is participating in a clinical trial and takes both Copaxone and Avonex, and she was gracious enough to share her experiences. Then we shared practical information about various employment issues from one chatter's problem of wanting to work but needing accommodations and not getting them, to another chatter's problem of being denied disability. We were able to share details about lawyers and social security. But as always, we eventually got silly and just laughed together.
I'd been feeling pretty low and very fatigued, but this chat really cheered me up.
That's the point of support groups: to help us when we need practical support or cheering up.I hope everyone enjoyed this as much as I did.
Due to the holidays, we'll resume these wonderful chats in January. If you couldn't make it last night, try again on January 9, 2009. Same time, same channel.
Until then, have a wonderful holiday season and keep laughing.
