    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,

    Problems with the board and some personal triggers

    Okay, so log in and I see one discussion from today and all of the rest are at least 2 days old. Does this happen to y'all? It's annoying because I know there are posts that I am missing.

    Ugh, work is now getting really stressful. So weird b/c a month ago (and for pretty much all of last year) things had been so rosy!

    Now my doubts keep creeping in and it is very hard not to be overwhelmed by fear, doubt, and a whole host of very negative thoughts. I keep reminding myself that I am so much stronger than I think. I try to tell myself that engaging in these powerful emotions will do nothing but ensure failure.

    I am realizing that it is hard for me to sustain long term relationships with people, especially co-workers. I want to keep my dignity and self-esteem, while at the same time understand ways to become a better friend.

    It is so comforting to have a place to go when I feel down. Thanks everyone and have a good day. Hopefully I will be able to see more posts later.

    I too find it difficult to maintain relationships. I realize that I put my spouse through allot of grief, yet I feel that he could be more understanding. It is his choice to be with me, I just wish he would chose to educate himself, and not rely on what he has been told, be other ignorant people concerning BP. Remember think positive act positive, be positive. (FAKE IT TILL YA MAKE IT) Have a Great Day.

    Hey Honey Bunny, So sorry that your feeling stressed at work. Bipolar and work dont go well together, at least not for me. And your right, you are stronger than you think.

    About the board. Are you hitting the *Home* button or the *Discussions* button to view the posts on the board? I always hit the Home button cause the Discussions button seems to mix everything up. Im mixed up enough, dont need the board to add to it. hugs
    Im female, Bipolar and Menopausal, that's a bad combination. The government wants to hire me as a deadly weapon!!!
