    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

    Hi everyone,

    I would like to wish all of you a HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY. The official Friendship Day is always recognized on the first Sunday of August. I must say that since joining this community, I've been communicating with some wonderful people who I do consider friends, not strangers. You don't have to visually see or share with someone to be their friend. We here at webmd may meet or maybe not but what we share with each other has made us friends as well as family.

    Remember the friends who have been there since your 1st seizure. Don't forget those who have jumped on the train and continued to be supportive of you. Appreciate your friends(family or nonblood) who accept our ep and recognize that there is much more to us.

    Hi Nancy,

    Thank You. You have been a real friend to me, too. I figure we have known each other for at least 10 yrs. I know we met shortly after I moved here to AZ. Time Flies! Hope you are having a Good week. Hugs!

    Love candi

    Thanks Nancy,

    I do feel that personal expierence has a lot to do with that "knowledge" you credit me for. I have learned very much about ep because I have always been open and comfortablet talking about it. It has also been helpful to have the support of my friends, teachers, docs, and the kids I have worked with.

    Also, with age does come knowledge. For most of us!!!!
