    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 hope no one will be offended or whatever, but I am not great with computers. Could someone please tell me how to "reply"?... I feel dumb, but when I do reply, it comes up as another person's name. I'm finding it very difficult lately to concentrate. I have Fibro, but a million other things, too...

    don't want to annoy anyone... I appreciate it so much.

    Hi Mpathia,

    I'm sure you're doing it right.

    When you're within a discussion and want to reply to the main topic, click on the Reply button on the original post. If you want to respond to someone else's response within that discussion, click on the Reply button to that person's post.

    If it's coming up under another's name, do you mean 'Anon_#####'? If so, that's your anonymous designation when you choose to post anonymously (that is a choice you make and some people do it accidentally).

    I hope this helps. And don't worry; we were all new at one time or another. Soon you'll be moving around these boards like an old pro.
    We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
