There is no chat room, but plenty of people here at the forum, almost all of which have diabetes and are good listeners and willing and able to give you some great advice, if you need it. I see you were diagnosed in 2005 so I'm sure you could give us some good advice yourself. Welcome to the forum.
Hello & welcome, Gus's Mom - we don't have a chat room, but the conversations in the threads move along pretty fast - there are normally several members online at any given time, because we're scattered all around the globe in many different time zones.
I hope you'll make yourself at home here & get acquainted with us . . . seems like having others in the same boat to talk with makes managing this cussed condition a lot easier!
