    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,

    Everyone who is here is here because they're dealing with pain and fatigue and more and so, naturally, most discussions here involve all aspects of dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis on a day to day basis.

    Even on the worst days there are good things in our lives and sometimes all it takes is looking around and noticing for us to be reminded. What good things are in your life this week?

    This week my kitties had their annual exams. I do worry every time they have to leave home and get their shots. All went well and everyone is healthy.

    So, I am reminded how much I love my pets, how they love me unconditionally, and what good listeners they are! I am grateful for my fur babies - they are definitely a good thing in my life.

    I'm glad they're doing fine, Xperky. Pets enrich our lives to such an amazing extent.
