    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,

    Insist on thinking everyone is out to get them. I'm in school but everything is done online via message boards like these. well I corrected someones statement on the boards and she freaked out claiming she knew more then me because she was older, and was a manager for 18years blah blah blah. So I replied back explaining to her that what i was said was from experience and i listed some of my background. People can be such Pea-brains!

    LOL re pea brains. Oh hun, that kind of thing happens quite a bit, not only on message boards, chat rooms, but in real life also. I understand where your coming from. Big hugs to you

    KatieS83 replied to snowyowl33's response:
    I think i figured out what her issue is. She is more apt to believe stuff written on the web or in books then that coming from someone who has actually worked in the field. this should be a really interesting 7 weeks with this lady, and a lot of laughs from my posts here!

    big update regarding this lady in my class. my instructor emailed me and asked me if i felt she was targetting me, and whether i was taking it personally etc etc. I told him yes, i felt she was attacking me personally why i didnt know. (i'm the only one she made repeated rude comments to during discussions), i told him, that i wasnt so much taking it personally as i was more annoyed with her, which wouldnt happen at all if she were doing this to other people. Now he's talking to her counsler and going to try to figure out what to do with her. weird stuff
    purpledolphingirl4 replied to KatieS83's response:
    hugs good luck i hope it does get better for u.
    snowyowl33 replied to KatieS83's response:
    Good for you for answering the way you did to your Instructor! and I hope they get her claws out of your back soon!
