Online Support

There is a growing network of endometriosis sites and support groups. This online family is loving, supportive, informative and absolutely essential. Once you have participated in a group, you will never forget the love and friendship you will have gained. To all online participants, thank you for that.

NEWSGROUPS
As well as this wonderful group, a moderated group can be found at alt.med.endometriosis - join it in the same way you would ASE.
 
WITSENDO
How do I subscribe? How do I UN-subscribe?
Witsendo ("we are interested in the treatment and support of women with endo") is a moderated listserve for women with endo (and their loved ones). A high volume of email is distributed weekly to the subscriber list, addressing all aspects of the disease. To subscribe, send an email to:
LISTSERV@LISTSERV.DARTMOUTH.EDU
with the message: SUBSCRIBE WITSENDO your full name
(obviously, substitute your own name) in the body of the mail. Do not include anything else, as the Listserv computer will read it as a command. If you must include a subject, simply put "SUBSCRIBE" in the line. For leaving the list: same procedure, with the message: SIGNOFF WITSENDO your full name.
Witsendo mail can be very high in volume. Once you have joined, you can learn how to sign up to get the messages in digest format rather than individual emails.
 
YAHOO
The ERC, EndoUK and Endonatural are among many of the popular groups at Yahoo groups (formerly eGroups). The ERC's group in particular is very active and is moderated to keep a friendly atmosphere.
 
Search the web to find similar groups at WebMD and others.
