    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,

    Three things any diabetes specialist in the world will tell you:

    1. Walk, everywhere, whenever, with whomever you can.
    2. Drink plenty of water.
    3. Make sleep a priority.

    If you do at least these three things, and eat with minimal common sense and moderation, "the only thing you'll have to fear is fear, itself"...

    PS: If you have the opportunity, I'd urge everyone (with fear) to please read Franklin Roosevelts' first inaugural address to the nation (March 4th, 1933). The greatest obligation we have to our country is to care for ourselves and our families and respect & protect the rights of others. I think if we do that, we'll be ok.
