    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

    As some of you already know, I will be letting go of my WebMD communities on 9/24.

    On this community, you are lucky to have Lainey joining you as moderator. For the next two weeks, she will shadow me here getting to know the community-piping in here and there.

    Please welcome her and Lainey, if you will, introduce yourself.

    Thanks so much Louise and hello community!

    My name is Lainey and I am very happy to be your new moderator. I have worked as a moderator for almost 5 years now.

    I am the mother of 6 children. 4 children are grown and 2 are teens. I am also a grandmother of 3. We are a nuclear family and very proud of all our children. My husband (of 14 years) is a firefighter and also owns a construction business.

    Looking forward to getting better acquainted with this community and helping in any way I can.

    Lainey :)
