    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,

    Warm the towel and housecoat

    Living in Ohio this time of year is the pits but the snow is beautiful; except today its 52. I have delt with more intense pain when getting out of the shower. The other day though I grabbed a towel from the dryer and it was actually still warm when I got out, it was wonderful.

    If your laundry room is in a different part of your home warm your towel and robe in the dryer 30 minutes before shower and pull out of dryer and place in plastic bag and trwill the top of bag to keep heat inside. Place the bag by bath/shower and when you get out you should be wrapped in warmth :)

    Everyone have a HAPPY COMFY NEW YEAR!
