Hi @ammatime I believe there was a Meetup today, and monthly. They tend to get posted here.
I think a few from there are east based, I’m in Bermondsey.

@ammatime Hi ammatime, I understand loneliness, sadly only too well. :/ I think too many of us live with loneliness. I would meet up with you if I could, I’m quite a bit further north than yourself tho. But I’m happy to be a friend.

Hi, thanks for your response. Do you ever come to London?

Hi, just joined this site…we (my wife and I) run a pub in Victoria, The Windsor Castle in Francis Street SW1, generally work on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 12 when we open. It’s nice and quiet so feel free to drop by and we can give you some time at the bar, or even introduce you to some of our regulars. Just let us now when in case we have to go out or something, we are also dog friendly if that helps

I would love to 🙂

The offer is open both Dee and myself will be on the bar from 12:00 Saturday and Sunday, it’s always quiet so drop by, bring a mate whatever. We look forward to seeing you as and when. I am thinking of holding a meet session here at some point so would be great to talk about that and perhaps if you fancy it, be a part of getting a group going. That loneliness feeling will soon be a thing of the past…..

Hi @markatwindsorcastle

Was just curious, did anything you ever make any moves to hold a meet session…?

Sounds interesting nice little pub….

Hi, it’s something I want to do, just had a relapse so a bit up the wall at the moment. I am planning a rebirth of me (a new me) over the next couple of weeks, I want to get that MS baggage put into a cupboard inside my head.

Hello markatwindsorcastle, Thanks for the invite. Would love to come. Is the pub wheelchair accessible?

@markatwindsorcastle – sorry to hear about the relapse, scary times, stay strong…. it will pass

Focus on recovery and let us know when the new you is ready

Thanks, have posted some ideas today waiting for some feedback from members in shift…I notice on your profile you don’t take any meds for RRMS, of which I also have. I take Plegridy and am thinking of changing. Is it your choice not to take meds?

Hi Mark – no meds at this stage, currently just lifestyle changes and alternative therapies…. see how it goes

I’m tagging @kimiblanc (hope I got that right). She organises a London meet up and we’d love to have one at your pub @markatwindsorcastle

Let’s make it happen!

Hey Sciencegeek..I guess kimiblanc arranges these meetings? If your tag linked would kimi arrange a meeting here at the Windsor Castle? If Kimi is the organiser I don’t mind being on the books as a venue. Please let me know. We have a ground floor disabled toilet just about big enough for wheelchair access as well. Better days would be Mondays, Tuesdays as these are quieter or weekends. Being a business led from local companies we can get uncomfortably full Wed/Thurs/ and Fridays. My email address is…[email protected] FYI

Is there any possibility we could make this happen week of 20th Aug, only if convenient, hate to break habits of a lifetime 🙂 ..

Only reason for asking is a friend from out of town, MSer, would like to meet up at some point and she is in town that week….

Thanks

Hi everyone,

Sorry I havent been in touch! We are planning to meet in Southbank tomorrow and then Monday 10th September, and then tuesday 9th october. Hopefully, one of these works for you?

@markatwindsorcastle – would the monday 10th or tuesday 9th work for you?

Sorry i’ve been out of touch but back on now!

Kim

Hey guys…Kimi I sent a message re the 9th October…Yes, this would be fine, I am waiting for a Lemtrada infusion (my first) in the next couple of weeks, so best I get Sep out of the way. So Oct 9th would be great to host a meetup.
