    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,

    My husband is in the early stages, diagnosed last fall. He doesn't mind answering questions if there is something he can do to help.

    Thank you for picking PD as your area to study! This disease is different for each and every one of us, as you can most likely see by reading the various posts and discusions here. I am an RN, and had to retire 100% disabled several years ago. I can tell you that I never knew much about PD and it has been a learning experience for me.

    If you haven't already, take time to read what's already posted on this community. I'm sure many of us won't mind sharing our experiences.
