    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,

    I found this "feeling wheel" and wanted to share it. I thought it was interesting. Here's what is said before the picture.


    "Wanted to share this helpful tool with anyone who needs it. A lot of people have a hard time putting their feelings into words and identifying what emotions they are feeling. This is called a feeling wheel. It can help you get to the core emotion you are experiencing and help you name each feeling when you're overwhelmed with many emotions this is so cool" http://madvocate.tumblr.com/page/20

    If I understand the purpose of this wheel of emotion tool, word association is used to help control the intensity of emotions. Usually, by the time I have a chance to really analyze my emotions they are overly expressed or muted by distractions, denial and reason. Looks like a good tool to take to a therapy appointment. Thank you.
