    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,

    A friend of mine died in her sleep one week ago today. She was only 29 yrs old. The autopsy said she had a swollen brain, and low blood-sugar. She was not dignosed with anything before she died. How did she die? I want a lable. I need to know there was a reason why her children are without their mother.

    Dear Revowski,

    I am so sorry for your loss. (((hugs)))

    This is something to discuss with a medical professional and I don't think anyone online can give you the answers you're looking for.

    But even when you find the medical answer, if there is one, there is no real 'why' when someone so young loses their life so suddenly.

    Be gentle with yourself.
