I hope that your journey to bettering your health continues. Keep up the excellent work and never stop trying to find a solution!

Please welcome Haylen. She will be popping in to introduce herself soon!

Sending thoughts of health and happiness for 2011 and beyond!

Here I am! I'm looking forward to learning more about this community and perhaps asking some questions myself.

My husband is currently under a doctors care for high blood pressure. I'm trying not to enhance his efforts to improve his health with unsolicited "wife nagging". :)

My background is board moderation in the technology, parenting and entertainment. However, I have logged many hours on WebMD before I became a moderator - mostly questions about sneezing, coughing and other unpleasant bodily functions related to my daughters ages 2.5 and 6.

Any suggestions for or questions about me are welcomed!

Hi Frank -

The best way to ask a question is to post a discussion.

Use the "Post Now" button at the top of this column and choose discussion in the drop down choices. Enter a heading that states what your post is about. In the body of the message write your specific question.

This way, your question is in the middle "What's Happening" column and easily seen to be addressed. Please let me know if you have any problems posting.

Happy and healthy Friday -

Haylen
