    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    As many of you are aware, members coming and going on all internet message boards and communities is simply part of life. You just get to know someone, and *poof*, they're gone.

    I'm do not want to be one those people who just *poof* leave, but do need to take a break. This WebMD Bipolar Community is just a bit too much for me right now. I will check in periodically but not every day. I hope you can all understand.

    You are all wonderful people. I pray you continue to be victorious in your lives and find ways to cope.
