Welcome to ObesityHelp.com's main chat room
We offer a variety of chat services throughout the site. If you find that this one does not meet your support needs, we recommend checking out our other options. Other areas of interest might be your state forum chat room, surgery type forum chat room, or your favorite OH forum that you visit regularly. Additionally, we have OH Groups with chat rooms and RSVP tools to schedule chat nights. You also have the opportunity to start your own group, with your own chat room! Our newest addition in instant communication is Meebo. This is an instant messaging bar that you can enable or disable at the bottom of your OH screen. Meebo allows you to instantly talk with your OH friends.
We have provided you with a wide variety of services so that you can find the right place for you to receive and give support. We ask that you do your best to respect the context and intended audience of each communication service we provide. It is your responsibility to ensure that your activity, language and electronic transmissions are appropriate.
