    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!

    Sleep: ok

    Mood: anxious, unmotivated but okish (if that makes sense)

    Plans: watch tv, puppy care, did a little garden work, made pizza. Not much else. It is a big day in baseball for Boston so have been watching the goings-on.

    Good afternoon everyone!

    Weather: In the mid 80's - perfect

    Sleep: I had a hard time getting to sleep, I seem to be paralyzed by anxiety. I don't want to take Seroquel because it causes me to eat everything in sight.

    Mood: Anxious. I have to get up and out of the house for my young niece's birthday party, but I rather stay curled up on the couch.

    Plans: I called my relatives that had back surgery . One was when she was 32 and one when he was 29 and he had a second 4 months ago. I got a lot of input, but the description of my surgery surpasses what they had. Of course a surgeon gives you the worst case scenario, but I am going for a second opinion. I don't want to wait too long, but I want to know what I am getting into.

    Mommaangel- Your back damage is far worse than mine is. I walked stooped over, but as long as I pace myself, I can make it through WalMart. Sleep comfortably is a whole different game. It is listening to stories like yours that humbles me.

    Hugs to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
