    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    The webmd theme to look for something you are grateful for actually is so sound. Studies show that if you can identify even one area a day, something as simple as the sun may be shining, you have better physical and mental health. I know how hard it must be for you as caregivers to think about gratitude, but an attitude of gratitude makes a difference.

    Hope you can find something to be grateful about,
    Judy

    There are many things I am grateful for, but the one I am the most thankful for is that I am well and able to take care of my family. I have so many potentially bad health problems, but everything is under control. I not only take care of my husband, but am on call constantly to help with my grandchildren.

    Thanks for asking.

    Hi Kathy,

    How great to feel gratitude for stable health and being there for your husband and grandchildren. Even though it is alot of work, there's something so satisfying about it.

    Do something just for you, too,

    Hi Judy,
    Yes, I keep in mind to stay active in my Red Hat Group. We meet once a month. Now I'm in a basket making class. I've about finished one and have 3 more to make. We meet one evening a week.

    Thank you for your support.

    Kathy
