    2 hours 7 minutes ago

    Hi Rolf, I just wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you to EiR. As Founder I really appreciate it when members fully engage with others rather than simply reading and moving on (which is of course also fine!). By the looks of your respirator I'm tempted to describe your MCS as more severe than 'medium' as but I hope to get to know you better before such labeling! Hope you're well as can be!

  • Maff posted a new announcement

  • Maff Surviving Multiple Chemical Sensitivity!
    yesterday

    I have an important announcement to follow but first I would like to welcome all our new group members who have joined in the past month or so. You'll find a huge amount of MCS information within the group (and on the EiR site as a whole) along with many friendly and well informed members willing to offer knowledge and support. As Founder I offer a very warm and understanding welcome to you all!
