    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.

    Hi everyone. Sorry haven't been posting. Just really haven't been up to it.

    Weather: 80's but sunny and humid

    Sleep: Never ever enough. 3 hours. Blah

    Mood: Depressed and anxiety way out of control

    Plans: Spent the morning doing legal stuff. Came home. Did more legal stuff and then gave up. Have to go do an Open House for Avon tonite and I really don't want to go. Will have to be up most of the night again because S just informed me that there was an accident at day labor and a bunch of tables got dropped on his head. Of course he won't go to the ER. So I'll be up all night to wake him on and off cause the likelyhood of a concussion is pretty good from what he described. I just can't catch a break.

    Hope everyone else is ok. No time to read past posts. So sorry.

    What a crummy day. I am so sorry. Just wake him up every 2 hours. I mean really wake him up. Have him talk to you tell you how he is feeling. No complaints from him now.. No dents in his head. Good luck, try and sleep between the 2 hours
