Severe ME Day – Community Support + Chat on Telegram
August 6 @ 10:00 am - August 9 @ 12:00 am PDTFree
For Severe ME Day, we are hosting a chat on Telegram, a secure messaging application (similar to Signal or Whats App) – it can be used on desktop or mobile devices, download here.
#MEAction is hosting a channel on Telegram where people are invited to chat and connect with others. We’ve hosted many different types of support groups / get-togethers and at the suggestion of people with severe ME who use the app, we’re using a platform that’s more accessible to everyone with ME. Many people with severe ME can’t join by video or during a short scheduled window, so using Telegram offers a way for everyone to be able to participate fully.
The chat will be open from Thursday August 6 – Saturday August 8, concluding with the end of Severe ME Day, so everyone who wants to will get a chance to stop in. This is the link to our channel: https://t.me/meactseveremeday. Once you download Telegram on your device, click the link and it will take you directly to the channel.
The chat will be moderated on the first day and we’ll get the discussion started.
