    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,

    Everyone,

    I am taking some vacation time from work. Most of you know that I check the board from work. I do have internet and a PC at home. I just get so busy doing things that I don't have time to log on. I will be returning on Tuesday July 9th. I was letting everyone know so no one would send a search party for me. If I do have some down time I will try to login and check the board. I do have a smartphone but I don't like to check the board on it. I get more aggravated than Kim does with hers. If any of you need me you can contact me through facebook. It's a like a text message so it's easier to respond and no, no one will be bothering me if they want to message me. It's a staycation more or less. I hope everyone continues well on their journeys and good luck while I am gone.

    Ok, Amber. Enough about my smartphone being smarter than I am, lol.
    It's true, but the newb don't need to know that!

    I hope your stay-cation is filled with wonder and happiness every day. And I hope to hear from you when you pop in to check on us.
    I'll not send a search party out till July 11th. That gives you 2 days to lurk after being away so long, so that you can catch up on all the discussions. But after the 11th, look for Dudley DoRight and a trusty Saint Bernard with a little keg of spirits attached to his collar , standing on your doorstep to retrieve you and bring you back to our domain.

    Until then. Great days, Amber!
