    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'm so tired of being treated like a little girl
    I'm so tired of being dumb or simple or naive or whatever else you want to call it.

    I'm just so, so, so tired.

    Oh, Mellie.

    ((Cyber-hugs, if you can't be touched right now.))

    Can you take a break? Lock the doors, turn on the A/C and take a nap? Sometimes things have a different perspective when you wake up.

    Come over and visit me. We can go to the beach today, and if you stick around for the 4th, we can go light sparklers and laugh and splash in the water. We can barbecue some good food and have Baskin-Robbin's ice cream for dessert. Then we can go to Bar Harbor for the fireworks and bask in the sea breeze.

    Pulling for ya, my friend.

    Thank you LLT. I'd love to go to the beach and to see Maine. In the movies the New England area always looks so charming. I've never been farther north than Washington DC. Thank you so much for listening. Hope you have a good 4th.
