    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,

    Sharing your journey with your boss, how great could that be? The shared experience and the close proximity of "one who feels your pain" should definitely hold both of you to task, lol
    I'm glad you love your new job, and that all seems to be evening out for you again.
    Welcome back, btw.

    If this works for you then it is good. I don't think it would work for me because I tend to like boundaries.....just me.

    Good that you are having a positive on the scale! WTG!
