    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

    Hello to All,
    Have had fibro for about 15 years, but just signed up on this Community and I hope to learn more and perhaps be able to help some of the newbies to this terrible disease.

    Welcome... I am sorry you have FM but it is always to meet new friends who here rapidly become family.... I don't think I could have gone 15 years without the companionship I have found here.... When I was diagnosed a few years ago I was in dismal shape and came here as fate... I found hope that I need to travel thru my long days and nights....

    It is thru newcomers that I am reminded of this... I needed the reminder tonight... Thanks for being here... Keep coming,,, And I hope you find help in your pain as much as you help others....

    Welcome again... I can't wait to get to know you better and know your wisdom....

    Take care.... Love.... Jan/Dakota

    Well Southern...look around and check out the tips and resources to the right. The "Members Toolbox" was something I started years ago as a place to go for the newbies to find a tool to fix their problem.

    I also recomend the books of Dr Devin Starlanyl. They are easy to read and have tools to fix the site. P R I C E L E S S.

    Welcome and please join in and help others (it is a medicine to, to share helping another.).

    So staya nd post often to show support of others who fight this everyday...all day. Welcome.
