    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,

    Getting Support and Tips

    Many times the most valuable source of information is from other people who have had to "walk in your shoes." They have had to live with Stroke and may have spent a good deal of time finding resources and strategies to solve a problem. Your physician may not have access to or know about a special community program or a pharmacy that has better services at a lower price.

    Local Stroke Support Groups can be invaluable in answering the questions that we cannot answer. The American Heart Association has a user friendly support group finder. I tried it for our area and it came up with 5 support groups. Here is the link. http://www.strokeassociation.org/STROKEORG/strokegroup/public/zipFinder.jsp Give it a try and more importantly give the support group a try.
