    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,

    weather: freezing

    sleep: awesome

    mood: much better now that I cut my trileptal

    Plans: Hubby has a doctor's appt and we have to run by the bank. Hey, Has anyone heard of a bank holding an out of state check for a week or more? They told us two business days when we deposited the check now they're saying 7 to 14 days. And this is a bank we've used for years. Driving me crazy. Hope everyone has a good day.

    Heard you mention Bible study...does that tend to help you?? support and a Christian based value system?? I am on the fence a bit about that. I am a Christian, however for me God is rarely logical and emotions with bipolar 1 can get twisted. My relationship with God is strong and I do gather MUCH benefit from Christ and through prayer, but I sometimes wonder about "going where the spirit leads" and mania...going where your warped mind leads you. Any thoughts?
