    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

    Taking Care of Each Other
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff posted:
    You are here because you have lost someone from your life and we are so sorry for your loss. Or you're preparing to lose someone dear to you. Sharing with others who are on the same road can be a powerful healing tool. Keep talking here as much as you need to, share your grief and your memories. And if you can at all, do some reading of others' posts and offer the same kind of comfort you seek.

    We will not be looking in here as regularly and so I really hope you all will take care of each other. It can be a powerful healing tool to talk with others who are themselves grieving and, especially, to offer support to others.

    And if you need a moderator's attention quickly, here are tips on How and Why to Report a Post .

    Be gentle with yourselves and know that you will get through this.

    Hi Smiles,

    Right, I won't be looking in here as regularly anymore.

    You will be heard; others here are looking in too. (((hugs)))
