Here at iVillage we're busy working on an all-new Health site that will launch in March. We know that community support is often key for coping with a health issue or when seeking information. We'd love to hear from you on how the iVillage community has helped you with support, information or advice during a health crisis or while living with a condition. Your responses may be included in our promotional materials and in the welcome messages for our revamped site. If you'd like to include a photo or other information you think helps to tell your story, be sure to include it in your post.

Thanks for your help and we are looking forward to sharing our new and improved Health site with you in a few weeks.

The people here have helped me immeasurably; including you, Tasha, and I am grateful for that.

However, I am not interested in writing free advertising copy for NBC Universal.

Sorry if that sounds mean.

I have made some lifelong friends here over the past 5 years (yikes...FIVE years). I'm never too thrilled with change, but inevitably I do adapt....have to agree with Paula though; if advertising compromises the integrity of the board, it will be hard to want to be here.

We're working on brand new pages for our Health channel (http://yourtotalhealth.ivillage.com) - new content, new pictures and easier navigation through the site. We're doing this for our members! The "advertising" wouldn't be for anything but to show people out there what iVillage is all about, and how helpful and supportive our boards can be for our members. Your quotes are to help spread the word to others (who don't know about iVillage Health) that could use a good support system, too. If you find something helpful, don't you want to tell all your friends about it? ;)

If you still don't wish to share, that's ok. :) I just wanted everyone to know that our intentions are only to better iVillage and to share our celebration of the new pages we'll be launching soon.

Tasha-

8 years ago, when our son was first diagnosed with PDD-NOS, I turned to the internet for support. This was one of the first resources I came across, and it's the only one that I've remained a part of. This board was the one that made me feel truly welcome.

Since that time, another one of our children has been diagnosed with multiple neurological issues. In the 8 years I've been "hanging around" I have NEVER been made to feel uncomfortable, judged, or unfit. I have made so many dear friends because of this board, and without them, I don't know where I'd be. I am a better wife, mother, and parent because of the support and friendship this board has provided me, and for that, I will be forever grateful.
