    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.

    We need to be the change that we seek. Meaning contact state and federal agencies, file written complaints, state facts on how your life and those around you are affected. Then after stating the things that need changing... try to come up with a few idea's of what can occur or be institued in place of current policies.

    I know this is difficult and sounds like bs... but I shall continue to be my own best advocate. I will badger the $#@% out of the powers that be! One voice can make a difference!

    I'll fight for you!!!!

    I'm sorry to hear this my wonderful Friedeggs... Keep on keeping on... if one way does not work... try a new way...
    The important thing is that you try... that you not give up...
    Make your voice heard. Be demanding. Use the media if you have to... have the editor of newspapers, community papers, etc. run your "story." Go viral with it by creating a webpage. Post to FB pages of those who are wronging you. Everything is on the world wide web. Just be certain to list facts, be honest, and keep it about your personal experience.
