    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

    Interview Request
    rehabstudent posted:
    I am a junior in college currently pursuing the rehabilitation field. As a student, I am required to interview a person with a health condition (epilepsy). I am using this resource to interview a person who has no problem with being asked a couple of questions about their health condition. The information given will be held as confidential and does not require the individual's name. Thank you in advance.

    Are you comfortable asking your questions here on WebMD? Because the Info supplied by this Support Group is not confidential, although the ppl who post the questions or reply w/ Info Are insured Privacy. ie: No names.

    I, personally, have no objections to answering any questions. My Health Info has been shared so many times on this site, it is Public Info, already. If you would like to know more about me, just clik on my userID or pic.

    Sorry about that, I just noticed that everything is public. As you can see I'm new in this website. But now that I know that I would prefer to email you to your email if possible just to keep it private. If you are still interested let me know so I can email you to the email in your profile. Thank you for taking your time and replying to my post.
    dancer86442 replied to rehabstudent's response:
    You can email me. But, put WebMD in the Topic bar so I don't delete you. I don't understand Why, But, I will respect your decision to keep it private.

    Love Candi

    I woud be happy to help you. Please read my story. You might find some answers there. I am the young lady with the turban. That pic was taken the morning after I had grids placed for seizure monitoring.

    Please get your questions to me quickly cause I have family duties coming up and won't have a computer availabe for 2-3 weeks.

    My email is included in my story. I'll contact the girl standing by me who had a lobectomy about 4 months prior to mine. Candi, you do know that's Dana(aka clarinet)?

    I'll be home until Sunday. Ask away.

    Hi college student,

    How is your research coming? I hope some of the info that has been posted in "our stories" has been helpful to you. Please don't be afraid to ask questions.

    If you choose to contact me by my email, please identify yourself so that I don't ignore it or if by chance it goes into spam.

    Have a good weekend.
