    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,

    Hi Everyone,
    Many of you are dealing with the onset of aggressive behavior. Often this is caused by your loved one feeling frightened, or confused, or or just plain not understanding what's going on. It sure is upsetting for you,.
    Here are some reminders:
    1. Always agree, even if they are wrong, and you are right.
    2. Avoid arguing: reasoning doesn't work.
    3. Apologize even if it's not your fault.
    4. Don't take it personally even if it directed at you
    Check out my tip on 'Sundowning " and you'll see more options.

    Try to remain calm, which is easier said than done.

    I'm with you,
    Judy
