    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.

    Good Morning or Afternoon!

    Hope all had a good weekend! Anybody watch the Oscars last night? Have you seen any of the movies? Sad, I have not!

    WebMD was live tweeting health and beauty tips while watching the Red Carpet. It was something new and fun!

    Share what you did over the weekend, any plans you have for the week and most of all, let us know how you are feeling.

    Alas, I did not see the Oscars as I was working last night. I hope they were good.

    I started school this week. It is after 9pm and I am at work. I left the house this morning at 730am. This will be my normal schedule Mon - Thurs for about 10 months or so. With a few days off here and there from either work or school. I hope I do not overdo things, but have my FMLA to back me up with work. My family is very understanding about me needing sleep.

    I've also started exercising more in the way of taking the stairs instead of the elevators. I work in a 4-story hospital and have to go to every floor repeatedly throughout my shift. In the last 2 days I have walked 96 flights of stairs (both up and down). It feels great....most of the time.

    Well, time for me to finish up my work and get out of here so I can get some sleep tonight. Hope everyone has a great week!
