    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.

    I wish I was a SAHM but unfortunately we cannot afford that right now. My DH and I both work in IT. I am a helpdesk manager and I also manage our Blackberry Server and devices for our entire company both in the US and International. I know..BORING right? LOL

    I always wanted to be a teacher or a nurse. I took the state PRAXIS test this summer for Elementary Education (K-5) and passed but right not we cannot afford for me to switch careers. Sadly it would be a large pay cut. Teachers should be the highest paid considering what they do!!!

    Anyway...for those of you who work what do you do?

    I'm a SAHM and just a month ago became a Creative Memories consultant. I still get to stay at home with him most of the time, but get out a few hours a week to do parties.

    I'm a CAD modeler/designer at a very well known faucet company. I LOVE my job! I would only ever leave if they made me, or if I had the option to be a SAHM/WAHM.
