    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.

    That's what we are here for. Believe it or not, we are watching xmas cartoons right now. Like Rudolph and Frosty. That is something to think about. What some heartwarming movies.

    I taped Casper and have Hallmark and Lifetime holiday movies. What an awesome idea.

    I have acheived my dream of being a kyte, for a single day, riding the wind. The anchors that held me down lifted... I was set free.. Now my journey of healing is possible. Gra' Bonnie

    Bubbles, I hope you feel better soon. In the meantime, I like Lexismom's & Bonnie's idea of watching heartwarming movies/shows to get you in a better state of mind. I think I'll try it myself.

    I had a bad morning but i feel better now thanks for asking.
    just have to keep the meds goin. talked to a few folks today for support. I'm kinda afraid to eat much of anything tho i'm hungry. i think i better stick to soup and bread. my daughter will come and bring some cuz i couldn't do nails w/her anyway to begin with no mula and then i was sick on top of it so...........
    i don't believe in going in the public (to weak anyway) but when youre sick unles you're the only one who can take care of you then you have to go you should stay home.
    ya'll take care of each other.
