    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

    Please Welcome Andie!

    I wanted to let you know that as of tomorrow (April 22nd), Andie would be the new moderator for the Caregiving Exchange. Please give her a warm welcome and don't be shy about asking questions.

    I can still be found on the Alzheimer's Exchange in case you'd like to visit. If you lose this post, there's a link for that Exchange under "Resources" as well. Alzheimer's Health Expert, Helene Bergman just posted a pair of very interesting replies about whether telling an Alzheimer's patient the truth or a lie is better, and what to do when your siblings won't help care for a parent.

    I also have a link for the Stroke Exchange in case you need that, too.

    My best wishes to all,

    Hi Everyone,

    Hi Everyone! It's taken a bit of technical behind-the-scenes fun to get my account ready to post and say hello to all of you. But, I am here now and happy to meet everyone.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you and providing the resources, feedback and any assistance you may need. I can see by reading your threads that this a great group, very supportive and helpful to one another, and I'm very happy to be joining you.

    I have some big shoes to fill following Byroney, but I will do my best!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I'm the caregiver for both my parents and my in-laws. It's a juggling act but I wouldn't have it any other way.
