Social Medicine: A Social Network for *Real* People

All too often, the social side of illnesses go ignored. As a psoriasis sufferer, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to deal with an illness without that all-essential support from real people who truly understand.

As a psoriasis sufferer, I recently launched, a successful and free social networking site for psoriasis sufferers, and was much needed and in high demand for people with psoriasis. I decided to take this concept one step further and have now launched; a community based website with multiple dedicated social networking sub-sites for a number of medical conditions.

Everyday people from all over the world are connecting and sharing information on Now that has been created, the sub-sites for other medical conditions await visitors. is putting the social back into all things medical. There has not been anything like this out in the social world; is the first of its kind. It’s designed to help those dealing with particular illnesses, help share their thoughts, experiences, and knowledge with others who experience the same condition. It is designed to be a social, fun and a relaxed way to learn and share information. Its emphasis is on connecting people and has all the social networking features and functionality expected.

The emphasis of is on socialising, discussion, and communication. The site offers a safe and supportive environment for users world-wide to:

  • Share their personal experiences
  • Ask questions or answer the questions of others
  • Share their knowledge about products or treatments
  • Share the medical advice they have received

Users can benefit from the site through key functionalities such as:

  • Full-featured personal blogs
  • One-on-one and group chats
  • Media file uploading and sharing
  • Friend “matching” and grouping
  • Group communications via our email engine

My simple goal was to give my illness and other illness sufferers a voice, a sounding-board, and a close-knit, supportive community of people, who understand what it was like to live with the condition.

I truly hope you find my story and the site interesting and are compelled to help me make other illness sufferers aware of
