    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

    Be gentle with yourselves

    I know this is a difficult time for many (all?) of you here and my thoughts are with you.

    Take care of yourselves through the holidays, take it one day - one hour - at a time. Let yourself cry, let yourself breathe, and lean on those around you to help get yourself through.

    I'm still here this week through Thursday but only sporadically after that until the new year. (At least that's the theory; I do find it hard to stay away. :-) )

    Hi Caprice.(maybe trigger?)

    Hope your holidays went well. I just came to this board today, but have been on others. Thanks for the nice message here. Between spring of 2008 and the spring of 2009 I expereinced two very powerful losses and since then it's been a difficult struggle. Things have just recently begun to clear up for me where I still miss my loved ones but the deep pain has eased. One of my losses was a pregnancy and I made my name on here angelsara because my husband and I had named the baby Sara. I hope that he and I were meant to have kids, but it's seems tenuous because i am 43. Well, I was just telling you a little because I've talked to you on other boards (with different name) and I feel like I know you a little bit.

    OOps! Posted under the other name by accident. New one is angelsara.

    Dear one,

    It's good to hear from you. I'm glad the pain is no longer at the agonizing level. It's such a hard road, isn't it? (((softhugs)))

    May 2011 be a year of renewed promise for you.
