    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,

    Good evening everyone! It's late and raining. This is my first post in this community. Been depressed lately due to stressors in my life. Seems that my spending is out of control. I have a budget but haven't been sticking to it. They keep cancelling my therapist appts. Really need to talk to her. Don't seem that they can keep anyone in the position for long. I look forward to hearing from you and maybe i can learn a lot from you.

    Welcome. Sorry to hear things have been tough. This is a friendly, supportive group so hope you will join in. We usually do a "daily post" and check in with each will see the format we tend to follow with that if you read it.
    Spending is one of my problems at times but usually when I am manic.
    Something I try to do is journal so I can get my feelings out. Then when I do see my tdoc (therapist), I can share some of it with her.
    Take care and hope today is a better day for you.

    Good Morning Hackworth and welcome.

    I'm glad you found us. Please keep trying to reach your therapist for help.

    I know you'll find some great support on the community as well.

    Again welcome.

    Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.
