I’m wondering what other members think about having a simple html chat link on here. I find that this condition can be very lonely and that any time I can have a conversation with someone who knows even the smallest bit about candida it’s a huge shot in the arm and a glimmer of hope for me. Being able to chat would spread more information between more members faster and be beneficial to everybody’s recovery. And it would also seem that you could make some true friends when you share in a struggle this hard. I made a chat room for a text based gaming website I had when I was 14, it’s very easy to implement and I don’t see any downside. I don’t know who runs the website or what people think about the idea, but I figure I’d throw it out there.

Good idea..especailly when in a panic about something I ate, should eat, etc. Only problem is that here we can search for answers by topic, word etc to find info. I have learned a lot by reading other post. I think that history may be lost and that is valuable ongoing research that we conduct here 🙂 I agree about instant conversations. When things were so bad for me I was like an addict waiting for a morsal of information to come my way. I couldn’t wait for Able or Raster to reach out and help me. Forever thankful for this discussion board or where would we be???June 2, 2012 at 11:09 am #83757

I absolutely love the idea of a chat room on the site and I’m sure I would enjoy it. However, there’s also a big problem with it. Some of us spend a lot of time correcting misinformation posted by some of the members. Speaking for myself, I actually look for these mistakes as some of the information can be so detrimental to the treatment, and I often answer several posts a day for this very reason. In a chat room, the information is posted for someone else immediately, and unless another member or one of the experts is right there on the spot to correct the false information, then it’s lost just like Jackie mentioned, and therefore no one is going to correct the information for the unknowing member who received it. I think this would do a lot of harm in the long run.
