    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,

    Overwhelmed & out of control

    Oh god...I am feeling so overwhelmed there is so much to do. It is taking everything within me just to sit on the couch & chill out for a minute. I've broken into tears wondering why I have to be this way...I feel so out of control over my emotions this afternoon. I'm to the point to where I'm shaking. I can't focus on one thought. While doing laundry earlier, I couldn't focus on the task, but all the other things needing to be done where running through my head. I hate being like this...

    Try to take a few deep breaths, and a long, hot bath. The water sometimes helps me when I'm manicky and out of sorts, helps to slow things down and ease the jitters.
