I have this and I also have this sent to my email as well ... I understand that it is nice to be in the group mentality that we are all in pain and this is so nice that we can deal with this together ...... I'm sorry but I also have fibromyalgia and PTSD and Depression ... sometimes the group hugs and lets all hurt together thingy is just not for everyone ... See More

The PatientsLikeMe website is a great resource for tracking my treatment history! I'm not very good at that, but I don't have to forget which medicines I've taken or therapies I've tried. Also, I'm fa...irly new and already see how beneficial this will be in connecting with others. I'm especially excited about being involved in the #MoreThan campaign to promote keeping our identity focused on WHO we are and NOT our diagnosis. See More

I like this site, and the new rollout is great. It fits well with a program we're looking at in Albuquerque to use language like: Acknowledge, Accept, Appreciate, Accomplish, in the place of negativ...e terms like stigma. Those of us who live with mental illness don't mind the "s" word, but we're finding the other members of our team really bothered by it. So we're trying to go in a different direction. Just like PatientsLikeMe. See More

It was SO EASY , to answer a survey regarding my health , my meds and have a blood sample drawn. All in the name of helping someone else who may get the diagnosis of Lupus. Research is key in the dev...elopment of treatment and maybe a cure ! See More

As an Ambassador, here @PatientsLikeMe, I cannot have anything less than the gratitude this Forum has given me since my having joined immediately following the God sent radio announcement that not onl...y opened my eyes but is a blessing in disguise. From text/messaging to an entire aura of choices there has not been anything more awakening and enlightening. In lieu of my own diagnosis, life as I know it still goes on without a beat and today I am onboard completely and non-discreetly with "giving back freely, as it has been so freely given to me!"

Yours, Now and Evermore,
@Ronnell0053, Ambassador@PatientsLikeMe....

I don't have a problem at all with Patients Like Me using my info for research. How else can they help? They've helped me making it easy to use my logs at the doctors, keep a cycle and med history, mo...tivate people, get encouraged, and maybe even become a PLM advocate myself. See More

Just that I am not alone with my condition. But my condition makes me alone.It is too hard to complete tasks. People don't care and can be impatient and nasty with me. I look fine ,therefore there is ...nothing wrong with me. It SUCKS! See More

I've been a member for a few years now. I find the tracking device for what treatments, medication etc brilliant. You can also track how your pain differs and how it affects your mood, sleep, etc. ...I am also on a couple of UK forums so I found keeping track of their forum section as well just a step too far so unfortunately that is one section I don't really participate in.You can also donate your data which helps them understand the issues a large group of people go through with a certain illness which helps them for research purposes.

I'm just confused. I have fibromyalgia, I have had it for 40 years. I don't want a bunch of emails nor to I want to be part of anymore studies. I see all kinds of people here with different things,... how does this help me? I run a support group and if I can't understand this I'm not going to send anyone to this site. See More

I LOVE this community! Tons of ways to connect with others about many different conditions, opportunities for your input and opinions to make a difference, and a great way to follow your progress ove...r long and short periods of time. I got free genetic testing with this site AND a $200 Amazon gift card for doing a facetime interview with a researcher! Great site with great opportunities. See More

I was hoping to get something out of it. Have only been on this site for 24 hours or more and was hoping for some input from military vets that have PTSD like me. But I guess that no one wants to say ...anything to me. See More

At first I was not sure about PLM, but after a while I became more comfortable. These pages are used for research. I actually have gotten a lot out of PLM, and am grateful for the people who reached out to me.

I've been a member of PLM for a year. The social community has been an amazing support. We learn from one another, share the best and the worst and have formed lasting relationships with folks from al...l over the world. The groups have gotten each other through some very dark days. I truly appreciate the family I've formed at PLM See More

I discovered PatientsLikeMe when I was first diagnosed! It helped me to understand my disease. Then through PatientsLikeMe I was able to participate with a patientcentric webinar with the FDA my condition. Now I’ve recently joined DigitalMe to hopefully, possibly help find not only the cause to my disease but who knows. Maybe it can lead to better treatments or even better a cure! See More

Meet Hetlena and hear how she is #MoreThan lupus
"I am not my illness. I have been chronically ill almost my whole life. I have to live day by day. I can't think of the future in the same way most people do. I have to live in the now. I have to fight to even function. But even with it all I am not my illness, disease and disorders." - @nentimaybe #MoreThan
