    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,

    My husband got accepted to Grad School! He is going back to get his Masters in Theater Education. He has his undergrad in the same thing. A Master's will get him back into teaching, will double our income, and will give me access to HEALTHCARE COVERAGE!!!!! He won't be done for another 2 years, but this is a HUGE light at the end of the tunnel!!

    That is super news! So happy for both of you. Now that's positive "stuff". You're doing well for your situation. And I can only imagine how difficult it is for you. But keep smiling, or at least trying to smile. And I always try to think of something humorous when something gets me down. A good laugh can always snap me out of my bad mood. It really does work.

    Congratulations!

    I thought grad school was fun--I hope your husband will, too. I took a theater course once--I was in the costume department. I had a ball!

    I've tried replying a few times.. lol. oh well. I'm really excited for you guys! what an answer to prayer huh. granted, it will be a little while until the insurance and stuff kicks in, but it's something. I used to love doing theater in school- granted I'm pretty sure I was terrible at it, but it was still a blast Congrats
