    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,

    First, I want to thank those of you who have replied to my latest posts. Thank you for your prayers and support.
    I'm fairly new to this sight, and I already can see how loving and supportive you all are. I check on this as much if not more so than fb!
    Just a little more about me, I'm 53 and have been suffering with fibro for about the last 25 years. Since that time, I've been in a car wreck and now my neck is fused in 3 places 'cuz of that. Now, I'm told that I have arthritis in my neck, back, hips, and knees. Also, some blown out discs in my lower back. I don't work any more due to the pain, and I am trying for disability for the third time. My husband tries to keep up with the bills, but it's a losing battle. Now, not only do we have all of my med. bills, but, we have med. bills from him. He was off of work for 5 months as he had to have part of his lung removed.
    I fight with depression all of the time and it seems more so now, because I feel so useless not being able to work and help with the finances.
    Thank you all. What a loving family you all are!

    Hi Mayville! Good morning! -- that is such a sweet thank you!

    I think it is good for us all to see the difficulties and challenges in each others lives--there gets to be a sense of community and common struggle--and you know too-- I think I am much less likely to give in to pity parties for myself after reading some of the even harder things other people are dealing with every day. God Bless & I will stick your hubby on my prayer list too. Mary
