    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,

    It takes Time for med taking to become a Habit. Just don't get discouraged. :)

    I suggest a daily/weekly pill box/organizer & a Timer (ie: cell phone, watch alarm, etc) even if you Do take them w/everyday regular activities. :) At least, until the Habit is Ingrained in the Brain. :) After 30 yrs of pill popping my brain actually tells Me it's Time. :) W/out even looking at the clock. :) It always amazes me when I look at the clock & sure enough; It's Time for another dose. :) I take meds 3X a day. I think my afternoon Vitamins are the Hardest to remember. But, ain't been doing that, as long as I have my Pheno's. But, All Good Things Happen w/ Time & Patience! :)

    If you don't like the one's in the drug store, I found one on EBay that looks like a small book w/ a 7 day supply, w/ Morn, noon, evening written on each Day Box. :) Load once a week & you are good to go, Anywhere. :)

    Love Candi
