    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.

    Hello Mommie, so very nice to meet you. First off, let me apologize for taking so long to reply to your post. The board is very slow on the weekends.

    Have you talked to your pdoc about changing or adding some meds? Im wondering if maybe you are having hormone fluctuations that may be causing these moods. Im going through peri menopause and my moods are up and down like Im on a roller coaster.

    I know that you say you dont like who you are anymore but I am sure you have some very good qualities and Im sure that many ppl like you. Ive felt like you have on many occasions but the ppl on this board and the wonderful ppl in my life always seem to change how I feel about myself.

    Also, you DO have a purpose. Everyone has a purpose. Right now your just having a difficult time but things will get better.

    hugs to you
    I HATE being Bipolar. Its AWESOME!!!!

    Hi Mommie and welcome. I think Cookie said everything best. I just wanted you to know that there are caring and understanding people on this board and please write back and let us know how you are doing.
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
