Welcome to the Behcet's Chat Room

This chat room was created for anyone that is dealing with Behcet's Disease. The room is called "behcets". All are welcome to share, learn, support, cry, laugh, and/or just get to know each other. The room was created for the sole benefit and use of Behcet's patients and their caregivers, friends, family members, and interested physicians. Anyone dealing with Behcet's Disease is welcome to use this room and can arrange their own time schedules to meet if they like.




The following hours are hosted by volunteers in the International Behçet's community.  As such, you will usually find someone in the chat room during these hours. 

Please remember that the chat room is available around the clock. 
The hosted chats on this schedule are merely a way to coordinate group chat times for friendship and support within our community. Please note that the chatroom is open 24 hours a day for anyone who wishes to use it!

The chat schedule is translated for some other continents or countries. As you can see, the time is not really convenient for some people. For those that live in these or other areas, you are more than welcome to join our chat night. If anyone has any suggestions; or if you feel there is enough demand to organize another chat schedule for your area, please contact Deb Kleber at:

We will gladly post additional schedules on this page.

NO complicated registrations, passwords or downloads required.  Just enter a name you wish to be known by and the rest is optional. If you wish to be known by one chatter name, if possible, please use this name every time you enter the room. This allows regular chatters to get to know one another.  We try to keep a chatter name list.  We have found it nice getting to know each other but this is optional.  No one will force you to discuss anything you do not wish to.  This chat room does require a Java enabled browser.
