    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,

    I just read a post talking about how many people say "I'm____, but______." I know I do the same thing.

    For example, "I'm really sedentary, but I want to be fit" and "I'm a mom, but I would like to spend more time with my children." and "I'm on a tight budget, but I would like to have more financial security and be able to give more money to those in need" and "I'm a caregiver to my mom, but I wish I spent more time talking with her and getting her some friends in the area"

    I would love to hear how you fill in these blanks: "I'm_____ , but_____."
