    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

    Just wanted to say thanks. I realize this group is not the easiest sometimes but it doesn't seem to phase you. I still recommend a dog as a stress reliever also great exercise companions.

    Definitely agree about the dogs! I have 2 and I call them my Nurse Dogs. One is even my "velcro dog." They are my company when no one is around and my physical therapy aides, too!

    I'm sure that cat lovers will say the same thing. Pet's are good for us in SO many ways!

    Dog AND cat lover here!

    One of my favorite articles to share on WebMD is Pets for Depression & Health.

    The first page lists the many benefits of sharing your life with a furry friend.

    Did you know WebMD has a Healthy Pets Center and a Pet Health Community?
