    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Do you have Borderline Personality Disorder? This new Exchange has been developed so we can encourage each other, share tips to get through those down days, and/or just vent.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.  Have patience with me as I heal.

    No, but I can't stay away from WebMD.

    The issue is that our business is struggling. We have an inventory of things that nobody needs. We've been in business since April 1979 and weathered some down times in the past but it doesn't look promising for our future.

    It all depends on how long A will let it drag on.

    I've done a lot of crying over this and then had to concede that my tears would not make a difference. It's sad watching our dream fade away.

    Thanks for asking dem. Please let me know how things are for you. I pray for you often.

    Love,
    Mary

    Really sorry to hear about your business, I really hope the process goes as painless and smooth as possible. I don't wanna sound corny, but sometimes when the door closes behind you, u are forced to find another way out. Change is scary and unpredictable but can also be a beginning of something new and exciting.

    No, dem, I can't tell you about our business.

    We have a young lady who is our sales manager. She has been with us since 2002. Her devotion to the business and to us is awesome. Our problem is not with the staff, our problem is people are not spending their money with us. Our community is tavern-poor and when times are down, people will spend money on liquor and sing the blues. The bars are making tons of money. It's just the way things are in this little town.

    Thanks for offer.

    Now - what is going on with you? Tell me so I can give advice...you know how I love to give advice! LOL

    Love,
    Mary

    I doubt we will close this year unless next month's sales are as bad as this month.

    My husband has a skill and he can do trade work at home if we close the business. Honestly, he would probably make a lot more money if he did that. But a dream is a dream and it just hurts that his dream is sort of crumbling around him.

    So our future is taken care of, it's just the present that is painful.

    Hope you having a good day, storm.

    Love ya,
    Mary

    marysings replied to dem242's response:
    dem, do you honestly think that anything you would tell me would hurt me? Think about how I was raised - I've seen it all, lived through hell, and I'm still walking around. Do you really think I could be hurt?

    Come on - I told you my situation - now you tell me yours.

    Love,
    Mary
