    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,

    Laurie, welcome back! It will be great to see you here again.
    Laurie Anderson, MSN, RNP, CDOE replied to phototaker's response:
    Hi everyone,

    I am very excited to be back to assist you with your diabetes questions and to share your joys and challenges in life. As you may notice on my profile I've been busy working with a great group of diabetes educators building a coaching service on the web. Such fun, but it's been a busy time in my life; as always I have learned much from those living with diabetes and hope those experiences will be helpful to you as we work together here at Web MD.

    A friend sent me one of those positive thinking emails today and it was divided into short segments, sort of like a poem. My favorite section said, "I can be sad that roses have thorns, or happy that thorns have roses!" Love that! Laurie
