    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 6/4/2012

    I really don't know why I'm starting a gratitude post. It hasn't been a stellar day or anything (not bad either...just another blah Monday). But...I'm going to try to come up with something...

    I'm grateful that my youngest son loved his first day of summer day camp (whew...huge relief).

    I'm grateful for my amazing boyfriend (who is trying to talk me into giving up my apartment to move myself and 2 boys into his house).

    I'm grateful that all of the sweet kids at the coffee shop know me by name (and order). favorite one bought my coffee for me 'just because'.

    Anyone else?

    I am grateful for my brother & his family for allowing me to spend a weekend in the Adirondacks again (even if it was a cool & rainy one)

    I am grateful my cats missed me and are extra snuggly tonight.

    That's just when we need to remind ourselves of the things for which we're grateful... when we're struggling. Thank you for starting this and I'm glad you found some things today.

    I'm grateful I was able to get back to exercising this morning after a forced break.

    I'm grateful for my great co-workers.

    I'm grateful for Netflix.

    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
