    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!

    Hello all my dahlings

    Weather: too cold at night and too hot during the day

    Sleep: good

    Mood: right now its ok but lately I've been a mess

    Plans: wrapping some gifts, writing out some Christmas cards (it takes me forever to write Christmas cards), doing house work. I need to finish Christmas shopping but I either don't have the desire to get out of the house or my health issues get in the way.

    Tonight is LOTRO night so I really need to relax today so that I can play tonight. This chronic pain sucks and is running my life. One day I am going to get tired of it, get angry and scream "THATS IT PAIN, I'VE HAD ENOUGH." Then I'm going to kick my azz.
    You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

    Good afternoon everyone:

    Weather: A cold 30 degrees

    Sleep: Not good. I kept waking up last night. Made for a long night.

    Mood: Ok

    Plans: Didn't make a call to reschedule my therapist appt. I forgot all about that. I will have to make it a point to do that tomorrow. Otherwise, just homework as always.

    Weather: Cold

    Sleep: little

    Mood: pretty sure I can do Kung Fu, if you know what I mean...hehe

    Plans: Writing again although I'm pretty sure I could run a marathon. Like. Right. Now..haha. I keep literally lol for no reason at all...except for my mind. Good times.

    Ms. Cookie, I hope that pain gets better. My husband has chronic back pain (he had surgery on it at 22) and I always feel bad for him. I can't imagine how it must feel to be in constant physical pain.
