    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!

    Hello all,

    Just wanted to check in with everyone and give an update on my boyfriend!! He is doing a lot better. He ended up in the er one night after having multiple seizures and become extremely confused..they said it was from his drinking and withdrawls. SO after I kicked him in the butt a few times, he has been not drinking and been going to the doctors (he still sometimes gets the absence seizures and aura's every so often) I just wanted to thank you all for your advice and listening! It's very refreshing to find people out there that don't even know you, but still are willing to take time out of their day to help! Once again I really appreciate it! You guys rock!

    Hello Auggie,

    I really do appreciate you updating us. You Rock!
    Your news just made My Day! I mean, it's sad to hear your boyfriend had to go thru so much, but, then I consider the fact that he Needed a Wake-Up call. A lot of ppl w/ Epilepsy Do! I know I did, Long Ago! As I continue to Educate myself & help others' I keep that in mind.

    I hope the DRs get his seizures under control, soon. Continue to Support him. Give him a few Hugs from me. If you ever need support or just need to talk, I will be here.

    Love Candi
