    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 am grateful to a good friend for remaining in my life.

    I am grateful for the wonderful weather we've had all summer and now predicted for the next couple of weeks at least.

    I'm grateful for the hike I went on this past weekend. It was gorgeous.

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

    Wow, I love all of the responses above. It is so hard to see the good at times, so to have us redirect our thoughts by challenging us to find at least one good thing a day to be grateful for will keep us all strong.

    I know I have days when I see nothing but darkness and you all are the flickering lights that help pull me through. Thank you.
