    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

    Thanks for being here!

    I forget how much this site interests me when I am away from it for too long.
    It sometimes is sad (the many questions, complaints etc) and the compassion shown by replies from others is always encouraging to me.
    I sometimes get down also from reading others' stories.
    But knowing others out there in the world who know and care is a blessing I need to come back here for more often!
    Also, the expert advice is priceless. Thank you Doctors and other professionals advising us. Hope you know we appreciate your attention and caring. God Bless every one of us!
    Thanks for being here! I will try to come in more often and uplift some as I have been. I know how it feels to complain. We have to get it out somewhere, and here we can without getting the look like we're CWAZY! Plus the vast amount of things we learn that may help us, I should be here daily! Gonna try. Thanks for readin my post.

    I to stay away at times or just spend time reading and not posting. Sometimes it hard for me to type, but there are times I just have no words for people who suffer so much pain.

    I find that it is such a help to find out others are out there trying to fight the fight. It also encourages me to read what has helped as what as well what didn't. In the long run I know it keeps in the right frame of mind along with shared info.

    I don't always have the right words or should I say my brain and fingers don't get it out right..
