    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

    Does your partner really "get" you?

    Leslie Becker-Phelps, PhD posted:
    Only when your partner "gets" you can he or she truly love and be supportive of you. Otherwise your partner just loves and supports (or argues with) the person they think you are. This is a huge problem because the essence of a close relationship is loving your partner and feeling loved by him or her. And, it is also the reason that good listening is essential to any healthy relationship.


    How is your communication with your partner? Do you feel that you really "get" each other? If not, where do things seem to go wrong for you? What do you find works in turning misunderstandings around?
