    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Well, I think you chose the better of the three options. Choosing life can be a hard choice, but worth it. I hope your doctor can find something better for you to be on, or perhaps you can find a non medication solution of some kind. When you are feeling a little better, see what you can do to reach out for some help so you don't have to be in this much pain again. There are folks here who will listen and also some great tips and resources in the resources section.

    I care how you are doing and I hope you feel better soon.
