Welcome to SOMPeople©

Please join us at our new home:

Profile creation and joining instructions here:

If you are a current or returning member of SOMPeople, we would love to have you apply to our new site.  When doing so, please identify yourself as a current/previous member, supply your valid e-mail address so that we can compare it to the information you have previously given to us, and we will get you started there right away.  You should also be able to use your current nickname at our new site.

If you are new applicant to our support group, please follow this link for instructions on how to create a profile at Yuku and make application to our site:

Our site information has been archived at Multiply. 
In time we will cull the best and most useful from our past
eight+ years here at MSN, but you are welcome
to noodle around there as you like. 
However, we will not be accepting memberships there.

This is a support group for people (SOMers) who
have been diagnosed with 
superior oblique myokymia (SOM). 
As we always say, "You're not alone!"
Take a look around, peruse our documents
and the message board. 


If you have been diagnosed with superior oblique myokymia, and would like to become a member, become familiar with the guidelines and links 
on our Home page.

If you have not been diagnosed with superior oblique myokymia, but simply feel that your symptoms could be SOM, you still need to go, no, run, to a doctor to obtain a diagnosis for your problems.  SOM symptoms are very similar to many other, much more serious illnesses, diseases, conditions or disorders, and you, absolutely, positively, must use the proper diagnosis procedures to eliminate these other medical issues.

 If you feel that we are a good match for you, click on the "Join Now" link (at the top left of this page) and we will respond as quickly as possible. 
For assistance with joining,
instructions may be found on this page:
•How to join

  Applicants will be contacted by e-mail, so please make sure that, depending on your protection system, you check your bulk or spam folders if our message to you does not show-up in your inbox. 
We generally respond to your
application within a few days.

 Thanks for stopping by!

Do not freak out, now.  Seven images.  Seems like a lot, but Yuku is one of the easiest registrations that you will ever do.  We will get right to it, but one important thing. ...
