I never noticed the chat room until now. I think all you have to do is choose a date and a time and announce it. Whoever wants to show up would log on then and start chatting.
This website is the closest thing to chatting I've ever done. I figured there wouldn't be any crazy stalkers hanging out at an ostomy forum!!
