    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.

    I have COPD gold 4 and diabetes, along with fibromyalgia. I have been waiting for disability with my attorney for 3 years. It is now in Federal Court. It is a low income doctor's clinic that I go to and don't feel comfortable there. It is very different and less professional then what I am used to. State ran.

    I am now experiencing an overwhelming of feelings just before the doctor enters the room and I start crying so hard she can not understand me.

    Could this be PTSD? I ask because anxiety disorder did not seem to fit.
