    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!

    It's a double edged sword, someday you feel fine and then overdo it and other days you can't get out of bed. I find that taking each day one at a time and trying not to overdo anything is best.


    Moderate exercise such as walking or gardening works for me. Do the types of exercises that Grandma would do and you should be fine. Keep on your med schedule because taking things off schedule messes with how I feel more.


    Good luck and stay tough.
