    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    thought a bit of a break for all of you to take a moment to breathe was in order:

    1. How's the weather in your part of the world? Any glimpses of spring yet?

    2. What good thing is in your life right now?

    3. What will you do for yourself this week?

    4. Peanut butter: do you prefer smooth or chunky?

    5. What thing or person rarely fails to make you smile, if only for a moment?

    1. Upper 70s and sunny..... I put the baby in short-sleeves and bare legs, sunscreen, fishing hat, and sunglasses and walked to the beach... it was wonderful.

    2. My baby girl

    3. I'll celebrate Mardi Gras with family and friends

    4. I love any kind of peanut butter but can't eat it right now because I'm nursing my baby who might be allergic (I pray she isn't!)

    5. My husband

    Our weather is cold and snowy. We still have March to get through yet in Wisconsin.

    I'm alive and working on getting myself well, emotionally.

    I have set up a counseling appointment to work through some upcoming possible triggers.

    Peanut Butter: Smooth, YUM

    Hearing from a friend or family member who just wants to talk.

    I would be too if I were you, Caprice. ;) I have no idea how people can live in cold climates.... I couldn't do it. I love where I live. It's one of the few places in the U.S. where you don't have to be rich to live at the beach.

    Thankfully, I live in the mildest corner of Canada (if you saw the 2010 winter Olympics, that's my part of the world and that year it was unseasonably warm of course! LOL) so it's usually rain and darkness that can get to me. This year it's been coldest and snowier than usual.

    I don't think I could live where they seem to get unending snow for months. I like having the ability to get out and about too much. I AM missing the sunshine though.
