    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Good Morning Emma,

    We Will Welcome Hayden. And Support: Well it's never ending, on my part, as long as my comp don't crash. :)

    I can remember when you 1st joined us. You admitted to Knowing Nothing (or very Little) about Epilepsy. I know you certainly learned a Lot being here w/ us. :)

    I know I Will Miss You! And IF you miss us Real Bad, well, you can always 'Lurk' or post us w/ a "Howdy" & update on how you are doing at home &/or on your new Board. :) Do you know Where/what Board on WebMD your 'new home' will be? I Hope it is another 'learning' experience for you. :)

    Definitely, Start a Tuesday 'share' post w/ your new family. :) Who knows, maybe more then 1 person will appreciate Your efforts. :) I know I Did! HUGS! God Bless!

    Love Candi

    Thank you Emma! I've been "lurking" around this week and am thrilled to become a part of this supportive and welcoming community.

    I live in Southern California with my husband, two daughters, a big dog (slightly smelly) and a fish. The fish joined our family recently as a surprise for my youngest who went "cold turkey" from the pacifier.

    I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions for me as a moderator as I get settled.

    Hi Candi! I knew you would pop in quickly :)
    Emma_WebMD_Staff replied to dancer86442's response:
    I will miss you too Candi, and I am all over WebMD in many communities. Not any that I can think of that you'd wonder into unless you were looking for me lol. I have baby's first year, sexual health, relationships, all the TTC communities and MS.

    Take care of yourself and I will pop in from time to time, if I get a chance to check in on you guys!

    Hugs Candi,

    Hi Haylen,

    Thank You for 'lurking'. :) And Welcome to Epland. :) Even if it Ain't Monday. :) :) And Yes, as you have figured out, I live here in Epland. :)

    Our 'past' moderators, well, they pretty much just did what the Title says. They made sure we behaved ourselves & were Nice to each other. :)

    Emma Started our Tuesday Conversations, a Few mths ago, when she noted I had Very Few PPL in our Family. Her way of giving me someone else to talk to & hoping to encourage others to 'stick around'. Well, it Did Wonders for Me. :) But, our 'Family' hasn't grown much in the past couple of Yrs. Most PPL just want answers & then we never hear from them again. But, this past mth, well, I got a Few new PPL who Do want to share info & support others. Welcome Shelia, Meredith & Bob.

    My son was 5 when I joined WebMD Epilepsy Boards. I had visited the EFA & But, replies were Months apart. Inconsistent. And I was fortunate to find a Big Family here. :) I wish the Archives went back that far. :) The PPL I met were more then Happy to Support me & it wasn't long B4 I started doing my own 'homework'. :) We have formed several Families since & I am hoping for a Big Family to form Again This New YR. :) I still 'owe' those amazing PPL & this is My Way of 'Paying It Forward'.

    Sounds like you don't live too far from me. I got 3 Dogs & I got 2 kids, too. But, the Youngest, my son, is Now 23. :) Still at Home w/ us. My daughter is 39 & Yeh, I Miss Her! Thank Goodness for Phones & Internet. :) I have 2 Grown 'Legal Gaurdian' Kids , numerous 'illegally :) adopted' Kids (all grown) & soon to be 'adopted' Grandma, (again) to another of my 'adopted' kids.

    OK, Enough Ramblin from Me. :) My Profile can say the rest. :)

    Love Candi

    I will Miss You & Hope you do Pop In occasionally. :)

    Hugs & God Bless you & yours, Emma!

    Love Candi
