    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,

    After another sleepless night, I am encouraged by this community. Before recently being diagnosed with BD, I thought my problems were something I just had to live with. My new psychiatrist has been a breath of fresh air. He understands what is going on and provides excellent help and counsel.
    This is my first post, so I will close for now. Will post again soon.

    You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

    Hi Anne, and welcome. Ditto to what everyone else is saying. Anything we can do to help you, or any advice you might need, just ask away. If we don't know the answer Dr. Goldberg might. He's awesome. Almost makes me wish I lived in NY just so I might be his patient. Not that I really want to give up my fantastic doctor. Glad you finally found someone who understands you. That's half the battle right there. Anyhow, welcome and good luck. Take care.
