    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

    I did it!! I past my driving test !!!! I can't believe that I actually got a driver's license. I'm so proud of myself, and its a feeling I'm really not familiar with. Nathan's going to take me car shopping this week. It should be interesting, we have differing opinions of what kind would be best for me. I think it should be something used, not too expensive with a few scratches/dings so I won't feel quite so bad if I'm in an accident or just bump into something. But he disagree's. He thinks I should get something with all the bells and whistles and really celebrate my accomplishment. Thanks for listening. You've all gotten to hear so much of the bad stuff, I just wanted to share something happy too. mellie

    Congratulations, Mellie! Go for the bells and whistles ... you certainly deserve it!

    And let me know when you decide to drive down my street and I'll bring the kids and dogs in. LOL LOL

    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.
