    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.

    Gratitude 5/10

    Sorry to borrow your idea Fran, but I know that have had a rough week & would really to come up with some positives in my life right now.

    I'm grateful that my little boy's 3 day bout with the stomach flu is over & he gets to spend some quality time with his stepdad (which he was so looking forward to).

    I'm grateful that I just got a 2hr uninterrupted nap.

    I'm grateful to the mother bird who put her nest in the roof of my balcony. I can sit outside on a beautiful day and hear their little peeps (as well as watch her take care of them). She spends all day just finding food for them while they poke their little heads out & wait. It reminds me that motherhood is supposed to be a lot of work.

    I'm grateful that it is such a beautiful day I am allowed to sit out with my iced mocha & watch it happen.

    I'm grateful for my iced mocha.

    I'm grateful for all of your kind words & understanding that are giving me the strength to finally find a T.

    I'm grateful to anyone who will accept this from me... (((hug)))

    Anyone else?
