Meetings

I encourage you all to start local meetings for folk with MS, their family, friends or carers. Use the "map" function found at the top left of the main page at the 3 lines, don't worry if there is no-one else in your area they are maybe all thinking that and just need some-one to stick themselves on it first. @Vivien and myself met via another platform and have set up meetings for more than a year now and boy has it been well worth it. As good as the sessions provided by shift.ms, the society and trust are we don't have any topics nor is anyone "in charge", we are a group of folk who meet and talk about what ever comes up (OK if asked we may help where possible). Its good to chat and even vent with people that understand and that you don't need to explain yourself to. We meet in a local bar for brunch on a monthly basis and with the current plague sweeping the globe we have been using Zoom which we will still utilise when we can all meet again. We don't put anyone on the spot, just don't come along in socks and sandals or we may take the piss out of you. I am not trying to sound like AA (coffee anonymous and I will be straight there), you will find it good to talk! Our next Zoom is this Saturday at 11am UK time details below. Come along and see for yourself.

Hi @watsoncraig Thank you so much for your warm welcome. I tried to thank you and @vivien & @itsonlymewithms , (& possibly others, please don’t be offended, I don’t have MS - my husband does- but I have a different neuro problem which means I don’t remember very well) but think I simply replied to my own post 🤔 and I haven’t looked into DMs on here yet. Your group sounds fantastic. I’m working on building up the courage to ZOOM 🏎. I’ve Zoomed with a doctor and a dentist, but ‘social calls’ loom larger. I know I’d encourage others to try, so I attempting to take my own advice. I might not make it this time, but I will at some point. I’m also going to put myself on the map. 🙂

You did thank us but I certainly will take any thanks going. To DM someone here you first need to be “friends” with them
