    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!

    a poem for us

    jis4judy posted:
    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,...
    Rest! If you must-but never quit.
    Life is queer, with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about
    When he might of won if he'd stuck it out;
    Stick to your task, though the pace seems slows-
    You may succeed with one more blow.

    Success is failure turned inside out-
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-
    And you may never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
    It's when things seem worse that YOU MUSN'T QUIT.

    Remember the Gold is not in the prize it's in the Journey
    life may not be the Party we expected but while we are here we may as well dance

    Wowza Judy, that's the best poem yet. Got a lot going on personally and professionally now. I think I'll keep doing what I'm doing with the resting whenever I can. Especially liked my yoga class yesterday morning! Huggs

    Baby steps, to a healthy lifestyle change. When you change your thoughts you will then change your weight. Getting healthy is about progress, not perfection.
