    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,

    Hey Everyone! Hope all are doing well .. I have been lurking and reading not a whole lot of time lately. Got back to trying to eat right this week and paying attention to what I am supposed to be doing.. trying to get back on track and putting a little structure in my life. Loving the new job .. starting to learn more and getting into a routine which is so what I need.

    Kim I hope your doing okay! I know you are down there in Isaac's path!

    Talk again soon!

    Hi Norma!

    Nice to hear your enjoying your new job.

    I have been busy at the Community College taking a few classes in sculpture and drawing and doing homework too.

    I haven't even had the time to lurk!

    Hope all are well here,

    NORMA J!!!!! Sooooo glad to see you again. Too bad I missed you
    I'm fine. It pitched a fit for about a day, windy, rainy, nasty, then we got a bit of ground fog. I think it's pretty much over though. The ground got good and saturated, had some puddles then even they soaked in. It's calling for some tstorms over the next few days, I'm not sure if that's still part of Isaac or not.
    Glad your job is fulfilling and that you like it.
    Also mega glad that you are still trying to do your body good by eating right, or at least as best you can. By your post you aren't doing too badly keeping on top of your journey along with learning the new job , but we already knew that you multitask well.

    eating healthy can help your mind work better too there are no ends to the benifits of eating healthy and getting some movement in ... once you get used to your new routine things will be easier.

    Hi Norma,

    Good that the work structure is helping you to get back on track. We all need to create one if we don't have work to give us one.

    Nice to hear the new job is clicking for you, WTG!!!
