    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.

    I thought some distraction might be in order so, since today is Book Lovers Day, I'm wondering what books are among your favorites, now or in the past?

    Me too, Penguie! I've gone through so many genres through the years and then leave most of them behind. What I like is that my taste is constantly evolving and I remain open to trying new authors and genres. ANYthing can be good if it's well-written. (Though I, too, am not big on 'romance novels' though stories with real love within them are fine. I'm not big on crime novels either. I have so many friends who like them and share them with me and I give them a try now and then but nope.)
