    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,

    Hey Cookie!!!!

    Cookie, have you changed your e-mail address??? I've sent you several e-mails over the past few months and gotten zero response from you. Totally understand if your pain has been too great to sit in front of a computer. I've been taking a break from the ol' laptop myself. Hope you're doing okay. I lost your phone number when I washed our cell phone several months ago or I'd just call. Take care my friend. Wishing you health and happiness.

    Hi sweet heart, I still have the same address and Im so sorry to all my friends here who have written me and not received a reply. Right now I am having a lot of pain and am mostly stuck using the Ipad, which totally sucks My VLSC pain has come back with a vengence!!! (trigger) On top of the pain Im having problems dealing with my step mothers death. She asked me to keep the family together but Im having problems with family members returning my calls. Sometimes I wonder if they are mad at me or perhaps I said something wrong. My brother is still in the hospital and will most likely die there. My other brothers wife just left him and he is quite depressed. So the last few days I have been crying off and on.

    Thank you for thinking of me and once again, I am so very very sorry that I havent replied to your emails. Quite rude of me. I feel very bad about it. It doesnt mean that I dont love and think of you guys. I will try my best to read all the emails everyone has sent ant will try to reply.

    all my love

    Cookie muahs to all
