    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

    I was wondering if you would be with me as an adviser maybe ? I know how busy you are. However anxiety and stress is a huge component of this horrible issue.

    I have most of the tools, but you are exceptional.

    Please LMK, say yes

    I appreciate your kind words and your need for some additional assistance, but this is not an area where I'm an expert and I would suggest that's what you need. Of course, anyone who is in your community can also post to other boards like mine or the one for depression or medications.

    Sorry for the delay, back in the hospital. How do I find an advisor ?

    Of course, any stress or anxiety will come to you. Do you know, because of you I have been free of any bipolar symptoms for months.

    Thanks for the kind words. I think, however, that you deserve a great deal of credit for what you have accomplished and it would be fine to accept that.

    Sorry to hear you are in the hospital again. As to an advisor, look on our boards here and send a note to any of the experts on the boards who might be of help. They may agree that their board is a good place for you to get info/help or suggest another.

    Take care and I hope things do continue to improve for you.
