    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!

    Jan,

    If there are no convenient pill disposal days in your town, try throwing your old pills in something like old coffee grounds and then into the trash. The coffee grounds discourage animals--including the human kind-- from taking a sample bite of your meds.

    Hey, 4 feet from your daughter's house! Your own house. Her own house. Yet you can be together whenever you both feel like it. Perfect. Just be sure to set some boundries. Your daughter and son-in-law need their privacy to live their own lives. Don't become one of THOSE mother-in-laws.

    Hope your high mellows out to be something sustainable and full of quiet joy.

    Jan:
    Being that close to your DD is fantastic! When I was a kid we had an elderly neighbor who couldn't speak. (He lost his larynx to cancer.) He couldn't get on the phone and call for help, so my Dad put a buzzer in our cellar, under the kitchen, and ran a cable to his house. If Mr M needed help, he'd press the button.

    As for the meds, bring them to your pharmacy. They know how to dispose of them properly.

    Dear Jan/Dakota,
    Check with your local pharmacy. Some of them will dispose of your meds for you. Also check with your doctor's staff. They will usually know where you can dispose of them. I know a long time ago we threw them down a toliet. Luckily we do not do that anymore. Good luck and if you would not mind, let us know what you find out.
