    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

    I don't seem to have some of the same walls that others here are expressing. I actually love being around people and especially being able to help someone. My anger seems to come from having my feeling invalidated for most of my life, and from the lack of contol I had in my marriage. I have had times that I've exploded at my family and have destroyed the relationship with both my daughters and my sister.
    It's when someone does or says something that makes me feel put down or disrespected. Somehow my feeling and words just spew forth like something automatic that doesn't even go through my brain. At the jobs I've had, the things other people have said or done have made me run and quit because of the hurt it caused. There have been a couple of times I have tried to stand up for myself, and that just made things worse. I live alone, I need to get out of this house, I need to work, but the thought of dealing with others and myself scares me to death.

    right now I can't concentrate very well

    I will pray for you

    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.
