    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 got this idea from one of the girls on the SH board... she puts up a list of things she is grateful for. I think, that in our darkest times, it's important to be grateful for things in our life. Anyone want to join me?

    I am grateful for my attorney.

    I am grateful for my cat, Savannah, who slept in bed with me this morning.

    I am grateful that I have a team of health professionals who care for me.

    I am grateful that yesterday was payday.

    Hi LLT, good idea.

    I'm grateful for my faith that keeps me going even when I want to give up.

    I'm grateful for the people I love, no matter how far away they may be.

    I'm grateful for my rabbit, Foxy, who is ornery and keeps things interesting.

    I'm grateful for art, whatever form it takes, and that it helps me relax.

    Anyone else?

    I agree. It's always good to remember our blessings; it helps us to not give up.

    I have to echo Rose on that first one - Quite frankly I wouldn't have bothered living this long without my faith in God and knowing that some day He will wipe away all tears from our eyes.

    And I, too, am very grateful for my T. I would be totally lost without him at this point in my life.

    And I also have to add my pets because they make me get up and function even when I'm overwhelmed, and they keep me from totally caving in.

    Grateful for a roof over my head, working heat, running water.

    Grateful for the Internet that connects me to others who understand that part of me (and grateful to them - you!) and for a couple of close friends who also understand.

    Anyone else?
