Welcome to the PatientsLikeMe community. Whether you’ve just enrolled, or you're an existing community member, we’re excited to show you around.
On your HOME page, we’ll introduce you to other community members that are just like you! You’ll see updates from our community managers about PatientsLikeMe events and relevant discussions. Not only that, but we’ll also help you add your health information so you can track your conditions and how you treat them.
As you scroll down, we’ll help you share your story so the community can get to know you better. We’ll remind you to evaluate your treatments, as well as ask you to respond to community wide polls.
You’ll also be able to read and respond to day-to-day updates from other members and helpful content from our community managers, too. You can choose who you’d like to see updates from with the dropdown menu.
Click “Create a post” to share with the community about how you are feeling.
You can view all your own updates at any time by clicking on your username, profile picture or letter icon from anywhere on the site.
We encourage you to comment on posts and interact with other members.
Use the @ symbol and then the member’s username to direct comments to a particular member. For example, if a post says, “Hello @joe12” then the member named joe12 will get a notification that he was mentioned in a comment. You can also show your reaction to posts and comments with the buttons below the text:
