    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've signed up but that's it. Not sure how to use it.

    Perhaps my good buddy creative Steph can explain it.

    I LOVE pinterest! We've just put DS on a gluten-free diet (it's helped his attention span TREMENDOUSLY!), and I've found a lot of great recipes on there. I also made a lot of Christmas decorations that I found there.

    It CAN definitely be a time-suck if you aren't careful, though. We're hopefully moving this summer, and I've found a lot of ideas for organization and kids stuff.

    Never heard of it. But of course now I am curious but don't want to check it out in case it sucks me in!

    Can someone find me a site that adds an hour or two to your day?

    I've been there once.

    I just don't have time to add it to my day. I don't get on facebook much either any more.

    I agree with Vics can someone please find me a site that can add hours to my day.

    My only FB friend is raving about this cleaning recipe she found on Pinterest:

    http://www.food.com/recipe/tub-and-shower-magic-434275

    I checked it out (Pinterest that is) but to be honest I don't really get it. But I agree with PPs that I don't want to be sucked into anything more right now!
