Skype(google hangouts) meet ups... anyone interested?

Recommended Posts

Meeting Thursdays at 6 PM (GMT+1)

Will post link here that will take you to chat during date and time (can also add you if you have gmail account)

Anyone interested in a virtual support group? We could meet to talk about whatever, to just support each other with treatments/day to day challenges. Whatever you feel like you need to talk about when it comes to scarring and such... 

You would be able to come and go as you wish. It might be nice to meet people with the same problems?

We'll set something up (if enough people are interested) for just one time and see how it goes. 

This would be a place free of judgement where we can just be ourselves. Since it will be impossible to meet face-to-face we thought doing it over Skype/google hangouts might be an idea.... 

If you are uncomfortable with talking face to face until you know people better just dim your lights you can decide how much you show people and how long you want to be there - all you have to do is exit the conversation!

If you want to be anonymous get a fake account or change your name!  

If you are interested hit me up (message me).

I think this has a lot of potential and I'm definitely in. I know it sounds scary, but what if it actually helps us? We are social creatures, guys.. and the whole scarring bullshit makes a lot of us feel really lonely sometimes. It might be worth a shot! You literally have nothing to lose, except a few minutes of your time.

This is great! How about we decide to meet at the end of July sometimes? Like 30th or something... If you guys want to meet earlier then that's fine too although not sure if I have internet connection where I am going but I'll join in next time if I can't get it to work!

I'm pretty sure everyone will be socially awkward at first :P. I mean, I sure as hell am on a daily basis.

Great! If we could try to google hangouts instead of Skype because the quality is apparently much better with google hangouts when you are several (and you can be up 10 people I think at least for free)

I will post the link here to the video conversation (you can just click it and you come directly to our group chat) when it is on or I can invite you to it if I have your email - you decide! 

Date suggestion for first meet up: Monday 1st of August (let me know if you want me to change it if you have something to do that day etc)

Oh could everyone let me know what time zone they are in and what time they work/school etc so i can decide a good time?

I would like to suggest "rabb.it" as a plausible platform because it allows you to also perform video streams from sites like youtube or netflix.

 
In other words, it opens the option of movie nights, anime nights and the like, if you so choose to adopt it.

I'm so in!

Thank you for organizing this. It's a wonderful idea :D

I'm central time. Anything after 6pm on a weekday works for me.

Will there be some sort of discussion agenda or theme?

Hi! I am so sorry! I won't make it on time I planned this way to close to my flight. How about Thursday night? 6 PM (GMT+1) that is 7 PM central time. 

Could everyone make this? Otherwise, you can go ahead without me just go on Google Hangouts and then share the link here! I can try to make it but I might not. 

I have sent messages to everyone. So everyone that can join just confirm here or through messages and then if we are too many I will split us... But I think we can make it.. 

I will add the link there 5 minutes before 6 PM (GMT+1 London time) on Thursday. I promise!
