    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    For some dang reason, I could not log in to post! Webmd would tell me to log in, I would fill out the info and then it would say "loading, please wait" ...and I would wait and wait.... It would never load! Grr!!!! After several different days of trying, I gave up and created a new account. My new name is "lupycakes" instead of "lisaisweavebee ". I wanted "cake lady " as k2 always calls me but someone else beat me to the name.

    Hi Lisa -

    Oh no - Sorry this happened! I don't remember any reported problems, but sometimes my computer gets "hung up" and I get the green circle of doom and have to reboot.

    If this does happen again, please write into and we can check to see what's going on.

    Again, sorry this happened. I do like your new name though!
