    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,

    marysings replied to soulkeepers's response:

    I'm lurking for a while. I have too many things going on and I need to take care of me.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.

    It was said on the SI forum that it's like family here so I thought I'd lurk around a bit.
    lovely_lemon_tree replied to off_the_wall's response:
    Hi, everyone. I just thought I'd send out a welcome. It used to be a very, very busy forum here, but now it's a bit more slow-moving. A lot of the regulars have either taken a break or moved on, and I'm so glad that they have moved on -- I just hope it was to a lighter, healthier life. But there are those of us who've been around for a long time and are still here -- Mary, Kitty, myself.

    It is like family here, but a quiet one. And a bit less dysfunctional than most others.

    Been a bit of a lurker myself lately so... hiya! *waves*

    (Seriously, nice discussion to start LLT. )
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
