    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

    "I am NOT the DIsease"
    TShalla posted:
    I am NOT MS. It doesn't determine if I smile or laugh. I have a medical condition.

    In life we all face obstacles. there are always challenges. Where there are challenges, there are opportunities. I may not remember everything or even multitask as flawlessly as I use to, but maybe that means I should pay more attention to organization. Post stickers, use digital reminders. I am fortunate to live in a world with technology. i think this desease has progressed faster than it should because of additional stress. STRESS THAT I FOSTERED.

    Stress can kill the healthiest of persons so why should I aid this medical condition to progress.


    Eliminate those that try to bring me down, who does not support me. Embrace life!! Take it easy and enjoy.

    Let this condition remind you to enjoy, live and love as much as you can. And maybe all that love and joy inside will reverse or greatly slow the progression.

    God Bless you with love and strength
