    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,

    Hey all my old bp friends...I know it's been sooooo long, but I've been thinking about you all for quite awhile now, so I told myself that today is the day. I went OOC for so long after my sis died that once I realized how long I'd stayed away from the board, the more self-conscious I felt about coming back again. (like..."everyone's gonna think i'm so rude"...or "what does SHE want?"...and kinda similar things in that vein).

    I decided to just suck it up and see though, because I have to say...I am convinced that NOT posting regularly and staying in touch w/ my pals here has had at least something to do with my significant lack of progress or even feeling like much other than human flotsam. When I isolate, boy do I go all out. The last year has really taken the cake though. I wonder if I won the title? Or earned a black belt?

    Anyway, for me it's been pretty much status quo as far as bp, pain & the other issues. I've hung out quite a bit on facebook, because that's where my kids are all the time, along with a bunch of my cousins, and lots of people I'd lost touch with over the years. I even found that my great-aunt, my grandma's youngest sister and last surviving sibling, is on FACEBOOK! Not only that - she is a wiz and master of almost every freaking game~~~ How cool is that, when a 70-something woman kicks butt in both farmville AND mafia wars? She's awesome.

    Right now I'd really just love hearing how all of you are and have been.

    Hey there my sweet cakes, Im so glad to see your shining, pretty face here once again. We totally understand why you have been away and dont worry about it darling, we still love you. Ive been MIA most of the time and only replying to a very few posts because of my health issues. I feel so guilty about that.

    You have a good weekend my love muffin. xoxoxoxox
    If people think Bipolars are crazy, then show them we really are. Just go up to somebody on the street and say "You're it!" and just run away!!
