Other HU forums

Anyone else tried any of them? The Healthy Eating one is fairly inactive, and what little activity i have seen seems to be members espousing various odd ideas that are not very healthy. And i was invited to join the new Women's Health forum, which had a burst of really intelligent topics from the organizers at first, but more recently has had the sort of questions about birth control that make you despair.

Not worth stickeng around so i am off. Are there any worthwhile besides C25K?

  • The strength and flex one is really quiet, I'm also on a raynauds one it's not as active as this one but more active than most

  • clearly we are the best :)

  • ...and the last thing we want is to turn into mumsynet ( God forbid)!!

  • I thought you were "MumsyNet's" honourary President?

  • How about pantheringnet.com?

  • I joined either netmums or mumsnet before moving here, hoping to find someone who might want to meet up. Maybe another ex-pat. I am still friends with an American woman in Devon i met that way the first time I lived in the UK. Nothing this time though.

    The only discussion group i ever followed was the one for American moms. I didnt know the word "mumsy" at the time, but, I do now!

  • Ahhhhhhhggggg!! Anything but mumsnet!!

  • I think we are different here to the other forums as in we work on a positive level. The other forums that do well are the ones that there is an element of feeling alone with an illness. I think it tends to be you only need it when you need it whereas we have an element of staying around to help others in a positive way. We are transitionary in a way but always active. If you see the daily figures of how many people have joined each day you will also see we have lots of lurkers who start to talk as they near graduation as confidence has been built. I'm not sure any of the forums offer as much as we do.

  • I go on Heal My PTSD. MPD Voice, and Global PTSD Community.
