Online social networks a lifeline for those with chronic illnesses

From the MSRC Website:  A very apt article for BMSTC at the moment.......watch this space!! :0)

A former model who is now chronically ill and struggles just to shower says the people she has met online have become her family. A quadriplegic man uses the Web to share tips on which places have the best wheelchair access, and a woman with multiple sclerosis says her regular Friday night online chats are her lifeline. http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm?fuseaction=show&pageid=2479
