    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,

    I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I shopped til I nearly dropped on Sat and Sunday and was able to find some great deals!

    Since nobody is responding to these Monday checki-ins, I think I may stop doing them for a while. It doean't make any sense to take the time to do them if no one is going to read or respond to them.

    Have a great week!

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

    Hey Lisa,

    I'm glad to hear you had fun shopping. Who doesn't love getting great deals?!

    Here in Ohio, it's in the 90's all week - yuck!!! - we go from 40's - 50's and rain non-stop to 90's and dry. No spring here!

    Not much going on with me other than the usual doctor appts. I see the hemotologist Friday and the rheumy on Monday.

    I understand about stopping the Monday check-in. I swear I think you and I are the only two people who post replys regularly and it's hard to keep the board going with just two!

    Take care!

    Hi Lisa,
    Since I'm new with lupus, I don't know what to say, being I'm still learning about this. I'm sorry, but I like to read what everyone has to say.
    I lost my enthusiasm for shopping, it's even hard for me to do groceries. I come home from work and want to rest the same goes for my weekends.
    You and Lisa do a great job here..... thank you ladies :)

    I have been extremely anti social lately! Work is busy, and i have unsuccessfully been fighting a flare. Going to the doc friday, so hope to be feeling better soon. tired of being tired!!

    Ohio weather has been horrendous! Another reason to hibernate! LOL.

    The board does seem to slow down during the summer. And I think it has affected it alot by losing chat, don't you think??

    I couldn't agree more Rena:

    Ohio weather is horrible and losing the chat feature was the nail in the coffin for this site. I never did hear a reason why they took it away to begin with or why they won't bring it back - so many of us used it every evening to connect with one another.
