    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!

    We do seem to pay for our good deeds! I feel it's important to risk a flare to do some of the more important things for our loved ones. We have to plan around the fact that we will pay the next day, or more...

    I hope you can rest and repair a while. You did a good thing.
    With Compassion,

    Ditto what she said, lol. It is so important to me to go on living, I do plan days to recover as needed and I am blessed to have a dear spouse who understands.

    Take care, Annette

    Give yourself some time. I created a flare of my own recently and it took a solid week of down time to finally feel some improvement.

    Try to move a little bit around the house instead of staying in bed. The bed is one of my most painful places to be! Gentle stretching may help you while you rest.

    Times like these I'm picking up my latest crochet/knit project. Do you have a hobby you enjoy that's not too physical?
    With Compassion,
    Margaret
