    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.

    Guide to Asthma in 7 Easy Steps
    Aqua14 posted:
    This is a brief but wonderful introduction to learning about asthma -- symptoms, medications, and examples of what to do when you have an attack. When I was an asthma newbie I found this link to be very helpful, especially when I was worried about what to do. I love how the authors walk you through examples of the different ways that asthma attacks can occur and the different causes of asthma attacks, and what to do in particular situations. It's practical information that I haven't found anywhere else on the web or in print.

    I hope that the link helps you, too. Take care & good luck. Judy
