    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,

    Ireneliz, please know we all know where you're coming from-this can be so frustrating! Have you called your doctor-I'm not any kind of specialist but trouble swallowing and forgetting how to spell-I would call and let him or her know-they may want to see you right away if these are new symptoms.

    As for the other-I know just what you mean there too. Sometimes I think if I have to live like this the rest of my life I'd just rather not. But in between spells, I know this is the pain and exhaustion and depression talking, not the real me. I try really hard when I'm having a real bad week to just think about 10 minutes from now-I refuse to even think about later today.

    Don't be embarrassed to talk to your PC about this also. He or she can refer you for counseling and possibly medication. I'm don't mean to sound preachy-I just really feel your pain and wish I could help. Hang in there! And we're here for you!
