    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

    The holidays are here, and that is a rough time for many of us. Perhaps posting some things we are grateful for may help?

    1. I am grateful for God's mercy and patience.
    2. I am grateful that I have the use of my left hand/arm while the right wrist is healing.
    3. I am grateful for friends, neighbors, coworkers and family who have helped in various ways during my recovery.
    4. And I am grateful for a million other things...eyesight, my pets, a roof over my head, and on and on.

    To quote a fellow survivor, "Peace be the journey."
    Be safe, everyone.
