    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

    Her mission is impossible but her message is meant to inspire...to dig deep and try. Does it matter if she ever achieves her dream?

    Interesting!

    I was just reading the story on CNN:

    Nyad quits swim after storm, jellyfish stings

    Bruno, check out the comments - I'm eager to hear what you have to say! So much negativity - I was surprised.

    What's the men's record for swimming from Cuba to Florida?

    There isn't one.

    The people critical of Nyad simply can't comprehend what kind of stones it takes go where she treads. That's not her problem. It's theirs...

    I think it's great!

    I'm on a mad tear to "age gracefully" and she is extremely motivating. Age is NOT an excuse anymore.
