    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Judy, Roberta and all members....!!!!!

    This is the reason WebMD has the "Report This" box at the bottom of posts!!!

    I had seen this post, but had not had the time to look at it as yet. Glad you did Judy! So often these types are scams or ads, etc. Folks who come to WebMD are often in a desperate state and emotionally vulnerable ...They make great targets for snake-oil salesmen, etc. We can help protect each other by reading any posts very critically!! If you ever sense that something just isn't right, click on the "Report" and it will be looked into quite quickly!

    Don't ever be afraid that you might be jumping to conclusions as the mods will examine things, and will let the post remain if there is not a problem. They haven't enough mods to watch every post so, as we say about our medical advocacy, we must take charge!! We alert them, and they can get to it more quickly. (What's the old adage...If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!!)

    Again, thanks Judy and Roberta for being suspicious! In case neither of you have reported it as yet, I will do so right now!

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly!
    Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!
