Hi Lizzy and Anna
its been suggested to me that I try and repost some of my posts from the bone mets forum on here so they are more accessible and don't get lost in the ether.
You should now be able to access the group. I hope this helps!
If you have any other questions, big of small, please email email@example.com.
Thank you for asking to request to join the Secondary Private group. I have put some steps below on how to request to join. I hope this helps 🙂
1. First, click on the Secondary Private Group. I have included a screenshot below.
2. Then click the 'Ask to Join' button in the top right hand corner of the screen. The moderators will then receive your request and confirm your diagnosis.
I hope this helps, if you have any other questions please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just returning read my first post on the secondary thread back in December. I feel in a much better place mentally than I was then. I was helped by your kind comments and also support l have received from (removed due to Ts and Cs) the physiologist at Maggie's centre Inverness. is something my Macmillian nurse suggested to me when l confessed to how low l felt. The phycological impact of this diagnosis was an item brought up at the info day l attended yesterday at BCC Glasgow. I would be interested to know other folks experiences of support that have recieved for this and if they had to seek it out themselves or if it was offered at the time of diagnosis?
Thank you for asking about the private group. In order to ask to join you need to first need to make sure you are logged in. Yon can then find the Secondary Private group on the Living with Secondary Breast cancer board here.
You can then request to join and one of the moderators will check your diagnosis with you.
I hope this helps, just let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your interest in the secondary private group. It has been brought to our attention that there are some concerns over the safety and accessibility of the group.
All questions are listened to and it is understandable that the safety of the group is of such concern for everyone. Please read all the information below, as we hope to alleviate all and any concerns, though please do continue to ask as the purpose of this space is for you all to feel safe and secure in order to provide a much needed space to be as honest and open with each other as you wish without the fear of others being able to intrude or read what you are all sharing.
Before accepting members to the secondary private group we read and check the content of their previous posts and see if they have previously posted on secondary boards. If they talk about their diagnoses then we accept their request to join the group, If we are unsure about a user’s diagnosis we then email them asking if they can give us some more information about their diagnoses and explain that this is a closed and private group just for those who are living with secondary breast cancer.
We are very careful with whom we accept into the group and do perform checks but what we are unable to prevent is someone giving us or you false information. However, we feel confident that the group will provide a supportive, private community area for people with secondary breast cancer where they can feel safe and supported by others who have shared or similar experiences, which is in an area which cannot be viewed by anyone on the open forum.
Also, we have happily now fixed the glitch which prevented users from viewing the members list of the group. You can now see the members of the group if you click the view all button at the bottom of the members bar on the right hand side.
