    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!

    Sick of Being Sick!

    I have been sick for over 3 weeks now!!! I so want to get back to normal.

    I caught a cold, which turned into a lung infection. I waited too long to go the doctor, and ended up in an Urgent Care last weekend. Now I'm on heavy duty antibiotics which have side effects making me feel awful. I still have 3 more days on them. Blech!!!

    We are afraid that I have developed some asthma. I have an appointment scheduled next week with my doc to discuss.

    Sorry for the whine. How are all of you doing on this cold, Monday morning?

    Whine away! (((hugs))) to you and I hope you find answers and treatment ASAP.

    How are the kids when mommy is sick? Now that mine are a bit older (4 and 7) they seem to understand a tiny bit and show sympathy....but no breakfast in bed or naps allowed.

    Both girls home today but I am working - my bestie dropped off her 11 year old who is "babysitting" and keeping them totally happy and occupied. Getting a gift card for each of them!!!

    Let us know what you find out about asthma!
