    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.

    Do not be ashamed. I am 43 and still have panic and anxiety attacks. I was driving when I had a bad one. I had to pull off the road and wait about 5 minutes before I could start driving again. I am on ssdi for it now. So please do not be ashamed. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Good luck. I will pray for you
