    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 Laura:

    I'm from Salem Oregon. Love it here. real 4 seasons, and I'm an hour from the coast, an hour from the mountains, and an hour from the big city (Portland.) I lived in Portland for a short period of time, and my guy and I plan to sell our house here in Salem and buy a condo or something in Portland when my kids are grown. 4 years to go with the last one.

    Take Care

    Hey Laura

    Good question. I have been wondering myself where a lot of these fine folks are too. However I have no earthly idea how many MSers we have on this web.

    I can tell you that some of these people are regular posters on this web. They are also very supportive and have really large ears when venting day arrives & it will arrive! I am also a member of ms world/ms support. However I think this web is somewhat smaller especially the regular posters and that makes this site a little more intimate & viewer friendly!

    Most of the people I have talked to are from the north. I am in Houston Tx. I have been wondering if anyone is in my area. I don't think you said where you are.


    PS: You may be told to skip spaces every now then to make it easier to read. There a lot of people out there that have vision problems as I think Kim/Hackwriter is having now.

    Thank You..........
