    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,

    Ooops, I do not like the repeat of word, "afraid" so changed it to:

    When I am afraid
    I hold onto hope
    Because hope
    Is not frightened by fear

    Thanks.....and the above saying is so true for me....for the longest time, if there could be just one word that is "my" word, my go to word, the one thing that keeps me going, it's hope. It always will be.

    Soooooo, we all agree. Never be afwaid if you have eternal hope. This message board can be called Philosophy Corner.

    Hey, ddnos,

    Consider this ~ The opposite of hate is not love. The opposite of love is not hate.

    The opposite of love is fear. The next time you are afwaid, apply generous quantities of love to people next to you. Its a sure cure for you. And it won't hurt them either.

    Your Goat, Ibex.
