    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,

    I just feel like I need to apologize for being such a terrible friend. I've been lost and out of touch and am already feeling super paranoid about posting here but miss hearing from all my wonderful buds. I can't even read from my phone anymore because I have a cheapo phone now on which the internet royally sucks. And be certain that you all do cross my mind all the time and I do always carry you all with me with all the best of wishes and intentions. I'm sorry that I got sucked into the abyss of nothingness for so long. I was doing ok for a bit but things lately have exploded or imploded, not sure.
    Anyhoo, I'm going to try and make myself come by more often, I always say this, don't know why it is so hard for me to do stuff...I just suck at getting anything done on a regular or consistent basis, short term I'm great, but when it comes to the long haul I inevitably fall apart and lose everyone and everything I had worked so hard to gain...working on this but going through so much right now too, it's like balancing a totem pole of packages filled with bricks and clouds...

    It's not that you necessarily need to be here to support others. If you cannot do that then that's ok. But you should write here when you need support from others. You will be able to provide support to others when you feel up to it. You should also check in when you have good things to share with the board. I understand the paranoia is keeping you from doing this. In time hopefully that will subside and allow you to be around more.

    oh, luvs, I had no idea.... I've been bogged down with my own, I haven't thought much to check in on you - for that, I'm sorry ... we'll try to dip back in this pool together, eh? I ghost around here a bit and then get shy and anxious and duck out, too, even when its really helping ...

    Lexismom, I should write more often, you're right, I hate it when I gt this way...but I don't feel as though my paranoia is unwarranted. It does help to write it/talk it out, true. I do hope those feelings die down soon too.

    Cooks, thanks for being so understanding, why would I feel like you were upset with me? See? See how I am...ugh...I need to take care, well theres SO, SO much I'm trying to take of right now and most of it has more to do with my kids and trying to help them...I try, it wears me down but I still have to try and keep up with it

    San, I know you've been having a time of things lately and I am sorry for that, I wish I could be more help. And you probaably haven't noticed much with me because I tend to keep my mouth shut most of the time. I've a lot of family on facebook now and I don't wanna freak them out...well it's not just MY family but also my brothers family and family friends too...you know how it is...theres the group there too..idk anymore, I feel like I'm backed into a corner and can't reach out anymore to anyone...nothing feels safe, if that makes sense?

    ty for the commiseration monkeybee, love the name btw

    aww hon, you never need to worry about that, we all take breaks as our lives get busy and during those times when our loads get heavy and our moods turn into a screaming roller coaster ride (don't forget to keep hands and feet inside the cart! lol) Look at me, I've been away for months and months, but I kept all of you close to my heart and everyone knew that too.
    Life takes us down many pathways, and that's how we learn and grow. You have so many talents and are such a wonderful person don't be afraid to take a walk down a new pathway.... when you turn around your true friends will always be there waving.....

    Big hugs
