    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

    Major anniversary date soon. At least I see my T tomorrow, which should help. Sigh.

    Thank you, SK. It's the anniversary of my sister's death. It's been a long time. I'll be okay. Just harder to cope around this time of year.

    Even though this is late, I wanted to let you know that you're thought about frequently and I miss you. I haven't been around lately because things in my life have taken on a busy, chaotic turn. But I hope you got though this difficult time.

    Thank u, LLT. If u ever want to elaborate, I still check the board.

    I'm just very sad that no one is around much anymore. I love this board, but it's hard to believe it will turn around and thrive again. I know there are some who r simply too afraid to post again or invest in this board anymore because of the last hullaballoo. That just makes me sadder.

    I won't ignore a direct post to me, though.

    And I especially miss hearing from those further along this healing journey who may not need the board anymore but were kind enough to KEEP LIGHTING THE WAY for the rest of us.

    Sorry, don't mean keep going on and on about it.

    I'm doing okay as far as that anniversary went. I discovered that a cousin I keep in touch with has memories of my sister. I can't wait to ask her more questions.

    As for the rest of my life, I'm currently dealing with a broken wing, and doing everything one handed is draining.

    Good talking with u, LLT!
