    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
    Weather: hot

    Sleep: I want to go back to bed and it is only1800

    Mood : Manic and angry

    Plan: try to stay up and do a million thing that I have thrown around the house

    I had lunch with my sister in law for her birthday. She is nice and has a good heart but she has NO CLUE ABOUT MY MENTAL ILLNESS. I am so angry. I mentioned that I was manic and that I was eatting and spending money like crazy. Her response was that it was better than being in the hospital. We have this long standing disagreement. She keeps telling me why don't I stop by. I have told her I am not going to stop by that I want to be invitied. I have said this a million this. She doesn' respect what I ask and makes me feel that it is all my fault. She invited me to thanksgiving but since last christmas whan her son video me saying I am the aunt we don;t talk about. I haven't been to another family,function. One reson was I told my nepher how hurt I was and all he said was he was only jokin. Never apoligize. I don' fit in that crowd, they all get drunk. I mean really drunk.I sorry I had to vent I am tired trying to get my family to understand.
