    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 mother used to work at a nursing home and she told me that the nurses would put the foam from pink hair rollers around their pens. The people with arthritis... especially RA LOVED the pens. I have recently starting doing this at home and work and WOW, I never would have thought doing this would help so much. If you have trouble writing then you should give this a shot. Good Luck!

    That's a great idea, Born to be blonde! I hope others will try and report back here with their experience.
