    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 Hurtin,

    Wow! Sounds like you have been through a lot.

    I am glad you are finding some pain relief, have you tried cooking the marijuana into food? At least you can avoid all the unfiltered smoke directly in your lungs. You might need to do a little experimenting on how much you have to eat vs smoke. It may take a little to kick because it is absorbed differently than smoking.

    good luck!
