    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

    Hope everyone stays safe. We are in south central PA so we are preparing to get hit. What fun. As of right now all the schools are closed but of course my office is not. As usual.

    Haven't posted in a while. How is everyone?

    Hey Bekah! I was wondering how you are doing - so you are in the office? must be hard to concentrate. Where are your kiddos today?

    I'm in Southern California but my "work wife" is in New Jersey. We're texting back and forth - she's hunkered down with her son and husband and said the rain and wind are starting to pound down.

    Too bad there's not an earthquake warning/evacuation process - GULP.

    Rain isn't too bad here (Massachusetts), but the wind is really picking up. Luckily my office made the decision to close today so I'm home with DS. Still have power so we played some on the Wii and watched A Dolphin Tale. Hoping the power stays on!
