    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!

    I mentioned in my daily post that I started social rythm therapy today. It has made me quite anxious but then, I don't adapt to change well. Have any of you tried it? Did it work? Did you like it? Are you still doing it?

    San,

    This came from psych central:
    Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy developed to help people with bipolar disorder . Its focus is on helping people identify and maintain the regular routines of everyday life — including sleep patterns — and solving interpersonal issues and problems that may arise that directly impact a person's routines.

    Here is the link with more info:

    I have to keep a regular routine and schedule out my entire day. I am also keeping a thorough mood chart.
