This ListServ group provides information and support for people with OM. The ListServ messages are sent through private email and available only to people on the mailing list. Archived emails can be obtained more easily than old Facebook posts. This ListServ tends to be U.S. centred, although not everyone on it is based in the U.S. The ListServe was created in 2001 to exchange information or support via e-mail.
