    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,

    I know many of you are having a very difficult time so I thought we could look for a little while at the good things that are in each of your lives. You/we all have them even on our darkest days; sometimes we just need to lift our heads and look around to see them again.

    What good things are in your life this week?
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.

    Caprice, it is sooooo hot and humid here, I just want to fall over. It's in the high 70s (Farenheit) in my apartment but it's 20 degrees hotter outside! It's humid, there is no sea breeze, and I have half a mind to go take a cold shower. There was a reason I moved to Maine and THIS WAS NOT IT. *glower*

    Good things:

    Corn dogs.

    Crutches.

    Raisinets.

    the Internet.

    Mileage reimbursement checks, whenever on earth they get here.

    Caesar salads (which is on the menu for me tonight... )

    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.
