    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

    Just wanted to check on you and see how you are getting along. Hope that you are doing better:)

    Are you on Facebook...I'd like to get a hold of you....I have some info for you that I can not post on here. If you are not on Facebook, I will give you my e-mail address or you can give me yours if you are comfortable with that. It's nothing bad....I am just not allowed to put it on this board:)

    Big hugs to you

    Mindy, thats fine. Give me your email and I will find you on facebook. (My email uses my last name, so I can't use it on here)

    So, how are you feeling? Hope that your week got a little better for you:)

    Here is my e-mail address...I know that they advise you not to put it on here, but I don't know how else to contact you...

    hey guys - you can always sign up for a new email address that you don't use on a regular basis and post it here (so you don't get scooped by spammers and hit on your normal account) - I use gmail and actually have all my gmail addresses show on my everyday account so my resume email and the one I post here work like 1 address while i"m still able to post it (or use a more professional email on my resume )

    also - you can help avoid bots grabbing your address by typing it like

    youremail *AT* hotmail *DOT* com

    not that its guaranteed not to get scooped up but it takes a bit more work for them to automatically grab it

    I think its so nice how everyone here wants to take care of each other

    Hello All - You are all wonderful, your care, concern and support for one another is immeasurable!

    Ali's idea of setting up a separate email for online communication is great. Your safety and security is our concern - please know our communities are public on the big ol' world wide web.

    FYI - I also have separate email addresses for work, personal, banking/credit card info and requesting information/ordering online.

    Keep up the great support!

    Elizabeth, I have separate email addresses exactly as you do. My son and my son-in-law are both in the banking industry and they highly recommend that everyone do this, just to protect your assets. So, I did, and recommended it to all of my other family members and friends. Makes perfect sense to me. Why take a chance in this day and age, right? And it's very easy to do...just get a "g" email or a Yahoo email. Both are free.
