    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,

    {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{Cookie}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} You can do it because you are doing it for her. You can fall apart later if you need to, but while you're there, do or say whatever you can to make her heart smile.

    (((Cookie))). You know you can always share here. Sometimes just venting helps.
    I hope the trip to your step mom's goes ok. I like what Debbie said about focusing on your step mom and making her heart smile. Well, I can't imagine anyone NOT smiling if you were near. And can't control or change your siblings so try to just keep that in mind and let go of the stress. I hope you can do that.
    Thinking of you. xo
