    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

    bj1208, Thank you for welcoming me to the support group. I am grateful to have found a place that provides information and a lift in spirits. We all understand each other, and our experiences can be of benefit to others who are going through medical testing, surgery and medication trials. The main reason I don't want to post a story is I am too embarassed to write anything additional at this time. After being bedridden for so long, my brain is mush. After I have read some of the things I have posted, I feel like an idiot. So many keys struck by mistake, poor sentence structure and a myriad of other error; I feel I should stop posting. After all the meds, pain, isolation in bed, my brain is not functioning. I can see it clearly in my basic mistakes. When you are unable to read and haven't seen words in print for a long time, you feel like a second grader. Thank you for the invite. I will come back to the site when my brain returns. P.S. After years off the computer, I don't even know if I am doing any of this correctly, i.e. replying in the correct place ect. All my best, April Rose

    Hey April -

    one thing good about a support group is we don't care about spelling mistakes poor sentence structures etc. we don't judge on that as we get posts for help from all over the world and some people don't have good English skills.

    most of us "oldie" members have posted a story when we became members - you may see a note at the bottom of our posts saying to click on picture or name to read full story -

    it's great to have a place to share experiences or ask questions etc. it does help a lot~~
