ANY WAY OF MAPPING WHERE WE'RE FROM?


Recommended Posts

This seems to be a particularly internaiton and cosmopolitan community!

Does any one know if there is some feature we can do to make a graphic map and point out where everyone lives?

Maybe we should all list here where we come from?

I'll start--I'm in the UK (England at the mo!)

That is a great idea about computer graphics, persephone!

I'll say this loud and proud: I'm from Wisconsin, USA! :unsure:

We're going to do this for one of the newsletters. I've already started on it, but feel free to speak up here too. I am also going to inclue where our physicians are located...that way we can see the physician to patient ratio in areas. Should be interesting...

Michelle,

Are you going to combine names and doctors? I want to ask my doctors if they want to be named first. I can understand they would hesitate for different reasons (as being overloaded with all kind of different medical complaints), but I also see a need in knowing which doctor to turn to in case you need them. I was very lucky that my cardio recognized POTS, but he's one in a million in my country!

btw I'm seeing my doctors this wednesday so maybe you can answer me before? Don't want to rush you, I know you're very busy! If you don't manage it's okay!

Wish I was from the UK....used to pretend that I was Scottish when I was a little girl :unsure:

I am a West Coast US girl... I grew up in California but have lived in the Northwest for 17 years. The state of Washington to be exact... bottom part of the state.

Michelle, I look forward to the map in the next Newsletter!

Corina, We are including the physicians from our Physician List page. I know not all physicians are on there so it won't be 100% accurate, but I think it still should be interesting.

Also, we don't just automatically include physicians on our list. We first send them a survey and ask them if they would like to be on our list. Some well-known physicians, like Dr. Rowe or Dr. Abdullah, have chosen not to be on the list. There are way too many patients and way too few doctors, and sometimes doctors are already overwhelmed and don't want the publicity. If you want, you can submit your doctor's contact information through the "Add a Physician" link on the Physician List page.

Take care,

Michelle

I might be the most northerly member (about the same latitude as Juneau, Alaska)? I'm from Scotland, living just at the edge of the highlands. At least I don't have to worry about hot weather affecting POTS, we're still getting frost overnight here and its nearly June <_<

This is a great idea. Can't wait to see the newsletter.

I grew up in and currently live in northwest Florida - although hubby and I are looking to relocate possibly west or northwest. <_<

Currently living near Princeton in New Jersey, USA. Spent several years of my childhood in the Republic of Niger, West Africa.

You're right, Merrill. It does feel like a pageant! In honour of Miss Congeniality 2? :P
