    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!

    Its not over for you. I know someone who has it and she just had a babay last year and is still with her boyfriend. You have to be positive and be strong. Be patient. Have faith in God and remember science will be their till they find a cure for you. Keep your head up. Don't give up ok. You are impotant to your family and friends. You may not think so but they will hurt more if you do something crazy. You can live with this if you have the desire too. You may still be able to have a family and not infect the baby if you so choose to have one some day. Be strong for those that love you. You will be surprised how many people really do love you. If you want to chat please contact me at . I will listen and be a friend if no one else listens ok. Just don't give up. I am not a doctor or anything like that. Just a person who thinks their is a purpose for these things. Take care aqnd wish you hopes and prayers for you.
