    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

    You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it!"

    This is my new favorite quote. Do you have quotes, songs, books that inspire you in your journey with FM?

    Soft hugs,

    Caprice_WebMD_Staff responded:
    I have a lot of quotes I really like, that inspire me and/or help me not take myself too seriously.

    I like the like from John Donne's For Whom the Bell Tolls: "No man is an island..."

    And especially love this one from Goethe:

    "What you can do, or dream you can do, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it."

    One of my faves is in my signature line here. It seems appropriate for anyone with FM or any other pain condition.
    We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. ~Joseph Campbell

    Thank you for replying Anon_2912 and Caprice. Caprice your signature quote by Joseph Campbell is one of my favorites. I also like:

    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.--Dr. Suess

    Soft hugs,

    I always like that one too, Schrode. Dr. Seuss rules.
