PBCers Chat Room

     PBCers Chat Room

Chatroom Guidelines

  • The PBCers chat room is NOT moderated, but we do have at least one volunteer host in our room during scheduled chats.
  • Chat room hosts are PBC patients, NOT medical professionals. Discussions are based on chatters personal experiences and views.
  • All scheduled chats are Eastern Time.
  • Please join chat room with your Name and State initials or Country outside US (such as Mary-KY, JuneCa, Alice-Canada). This allows us to get to know one another. Changing nicknames in the chat room causes confusion, so please refrain from doing this.
  • The chat room is open 24/7. Although our chat room host is only there during scheduled chats, the room is available during nonschedule times for private, committee and other chats.
  • We hope to maintain a friendly environment where we offer help, support and friendship to PBCers, family members or friends.
  • Maintain communication of mutual respect, being polite and respectful to others as if you were talking in person.
  • Although our chat room is mainly to discuss PBC, we also encourage other PBC related topics and having fun. Laughter can be the best medicine. We do not discuss Politics, Religion, Race or Sexual Preference.  Please read the PBCers Organization Rules.
  • Any questions, problems, or requests for assistance to gain access to the PBCers Chat room, please email chathelp@pbcers.org.

Many thanks to our chat room hosts who give their time and energy to help other PBCers.
