    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,

    Can't sleep. Meds wont work. Self medicating with happy drugs that are no longer working. Sad and depressed all the time. Feeling hopeless and alone. Start AP II for nursing school on the 20th and need to snap out of it. Relationship strain, no sexlife, no communication, no understanding and no support system. WOW! What is a girl to do?

    Whatever you do, please don't give up! You are NOT ALONE! And most definitely, you are NOT HOPELESS!!! We've all been there and we've all come out soon enough. Call your psychiatrist and tell him your medications are not working. (How long have been taking these particular medications?) If you feel he is not not listening, consider finding another psychiatrist. Talk with him about your problems? If he is just a psychopharmacologist, consider looking somebody who is also a psychotherapist. Keep writing here. We're listening. We're here for each other. Please respond ASAP.
