    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!

    You are right, you are NOT a lab rat, but a human being with views, thoughts, opinions, dreams, hopes, and a to do list!!

    Also, remember that you can say "No" to doctors who keep trying to fill you with medications that you may not need! I have refused various medications many times over the years because I knew they weren't necessary. I will never refuse medication if/when I absolutely NEED them, but I refuse to end up having to take a truckload of medication!

    Take care and welcome to the boards!
