    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,

    I've been dealing with anxiety since I was young. I was officially diagnosed with it when I was 16 and i'm 21 now and still learning new things on how to control it.
    The one thing that really really helps is try and find the best destraction. Going for a drive (I don't suggest if you are actually in a panic attack, just when you're feeling a little anxious), reading a book, playing music, taking photos, and the list goes on! Once you start to concentrate on these things, you're only focusing on that certain thing.

    Also, I find that stress balls help tremendously.

    I really hope this helps. And I am always looking for tips also!! thank you
