    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,

    Social Experiment that hit home - what do you think?

    This posted up on my FB wall today through Elizabeth Gilbert's site. I watched it and had to sit here and think about it. It really hit home for me because I saw myself in this, and I wonder about the way I see myself. I then went and watched all of the videos too. Maybe I am really critical about beauty sometimes, especially lately when I look in the mirror. I need to work on that.......

    What do you think and feel about this experiment?

    Wow! Thanks for sharing - I think! lol

    I can totally see how valid, but sad, that experiment is. Were I one of those involved in that experiment, I'd hate to see what I described myself as looking like, and wouldn't believe what someone else thought I looked like. How sad, eh?
