    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!

    I got nothing, spent 125.00 to be told everything is too expensive for out of pocket and nothing they can do so he wrote a script for 30 percs and that was it, what a waste of money and hope for any kind of quality of life left on this planet.

    Yeah, "Get back on insurance" I wish it was that easy. Maybe in your world but not mine. Have you ever been told No so much that you just go numb? That is where I am, Im tired of trying and getting the same result. NO, NO, NO, where do you decide to draw the line?

    OH YES I HAVE BEEN TOLD NO OFTEN IN MY MANY YEARS ON THIS EARTH. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE FOR SURE.

    WHEN YOU FALL DOWN YOU GET BACK UP AND TRY AGAIN AND AGAIN. YOU TAKE CONTROL BACK ASAP. YOU ARE ONLY A VICTIM WHEN YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE ONE.
