    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,

    Hi Lisa, I had posted earlier, post had trouble with website and it didn't post.
    Anyway, I had read your reply to "urgent question" and wanted to say "thank you", thank you for your knowledge and wisdom you give here, I myself have had the pleasure of your help and you're pretty quick to respond, and that means alot.
    As I'm typing this, the joints on my hands hurt really bad and I feel light headed and dizzy.
    I know you have your bad days too, but like mother who is there for her children, you are always here for us, especially us new with lupus.
    Thank you and many many blessing you.

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
