    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, lifes --

    you've probably noticed that i haven't been around for some time. i was having problems with depression for a while and dropped below the radar, coincidentally around the time when webMD stopped having moderators. i am so glad to see that you are still active, because you've always been so helpful and give such accurate information to people.

    i hope that you are doing as well as can be expected; as always, you have my complete sympathy. i have some new physical problems that are taking up a lot of my time right now, but i will try to look in on this exchange from time to time.

    i send you many caring thoughts.

    Hi Susie Margaret!

    I wondered what happened to you. Sorry to hear you've been hurting. You don't deserve to have more to deal with.

    I'm doing ok... depends on what day it is I guess.

    Hope to see you around, though this forum gets pretty quiet...

    hi again, lifes --

    i'm so glad to hear from you!

    i do plan to check in now and again to see if there are any relatively simple inquiries i can respond to. i just don't have the emotional, intellectual, or physical energy that i used to have, and i've always been amazed at the amt you have been able to do when i know that you have terrible physical problems.

    evidently we have no more moderators at webMD, and no more experts, either (tho there never was an expert on this board, anyway, except for you and red). i don't really understand some of the recent changes related to the webMD boards, but i guess they wanted to go in a different direction.

    take care.
