    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,

    Well, Emily had her first playdate without me! We live right next to a little girl the same age as Emily. She invited Emily over, and Emily's first answer was "NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!" Once I explained it was OK - she just wouldn't eat anything and I would be right next door, she was excited.

    I know it's kind of sad that she's 7 and never done that before, but I knew you all would understand!
