    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,

    My family has disowned me ever since I was diagnosed with Bi-Polar. My daughter calls me the Bi-Polar psycho bitch from hell and tries to break her father and myself up. I have a good counselor but only see her once every two weeks and it is hard for me to talk to her about some things. I have a good doctor but it doesn't seem like my medications are working anymore and am not sure how to talk to him about it. I have been through ECT and so many medications, been through DBT skills workshop and alot of other workshops on how to deal with Bi-Polar right now I am at the point of giving up once again.
