    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

    ...on something sweet and/or fun for each member here and also on yourself. You cannot spend on others unless you also spend on yourself.

    What would you get everyone here? What would you get for yourself? Would it be the same thing?

    I would get everyone the book The Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass & Laura Davis. This book was my first book to read when I realize I had been sexually abuse as a child. It educated me in so many ways. It gave me the courage eventually to speak about my abuse and to confront the abusers. It has help me be stronger also with the help of conselors and therapist. This book save me and made me believe that I am a survivor not a victim anymore. ~Healing

    That book really helped me too, Healing. Nice that you'd give it to everyone here.

    So now you've taken care of everyone else; what would you give to yourself?
