    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,

    Hi Cuddles -

    Inspiring words, jokes, off-topic posts, getting to know you's, check-in's, distractions are always welcome!

    A community and those in it start off with a common thread - an common illness. But we know there is SO much more than being defined by an illness whatever the illness may be.

    As a community we may not have all the answers to living with an illness, but we can be here to support, to commiserate and to just lend an ear.

    Most of all we can have a safe place to talk about what's going on in each others life and those who are in a good place can rally to help those who are struggling.

    So, yes, off topic helpful, light-hearted posts are good for community.

    Elizabeth

    People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily....... Zig Ziglar
