    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,

    Hi all, been missing you guys! Haven't had too much computer time other than work and FB. Will try to catch up reading the posts tomorrow . Hope you've all been well. Anna Mae is settling right in. I can't believe I got her two weeks ago tomorrow. Seems like she's been around longer than that.

    Still struggling to get the holiday pounds off, but they will eventually go. Wish that old adage "easy come, easy go" applied to weight! More later.....

    Hi Debbie! It's always a lift to see your face. Kisses to Anna Mae. Maybe we could do an ANNA MAE CHALLENGE! One where we try and erase 8 lbs from the participants in honor of her weight when she came home. I can't imagine how good she must feel cuddling on your sofa now

    Hi Abby, I think I posted a couple of weeks ago when I first got her. I got her from our local shelter. She is a long haired chihuahua who was found on the side of the interstate. She is 2 years old and was not house trained, but has caught on quickly. It's very nice to have a dog again, except on these really cold mornings when I walk her before I go to work. Ah well, it's worth it! How've you been. I'm so behind on posts!!!

    Thanks for the warm welcome back Kathy and Keet. Work has finally settled down after crazy beginning of semester so I should be a regular again!!!
