    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,

    Hello everyone, I am new to the discussion boards. I have used webMD for years but never the forums. I am newly diagnosed Bipolar 2. I was hospitalized back in February and spent a total of 5 1/2 weeks inpatient was released on March 30th. In April I received my diagnosis from my pdoc. I have been on a whole slue of meds since February trying to get one that worked or one that I did not have a really bad reaction to. It is scary, but I am trying very hard to keep my family together and to seek help when I need it and to know my signs and symptoms of this disorder. I look forward to getting to know you all and learning more about this disorder.
