    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

    Looking to connect...

    I was diagnosed with my RA 10 years ago. There have been ups and downs, but overall, I'm still living my life. I continue to work full time in my office job, and I am single for the first time in my adult life. By nature I am an optimist, and I am too stubborn to let this hideous disease get the best of me. However, there are times when it is difficult to maintain this attitude. Friends and co-workers do not understand the level of pain, fatigue, and frustration... mainly because they are invisible symptoms.
    I am looking to connect with other women in a similar situation as I am who also try to keep a positive outlook on life.
    Have a great day!
