    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.

    Hello mary how are you? Its been a long couple weeks. I have been working on myself and trying to get back to a routine. I went back to work this week and it sure has been stressful. I dont know how to handle it all. Its very intense. I dont know maybe I just neede to rant a bit. Thanks for the safe place

    AZ, I'm pretty much in the same place as you. Dr.B is concerned that my SI thoughts are so high. I even told him how I was going to do it.

    I'm sorry you have to work. Have you looked into SS Disability? The money is not quite as if you were working but if you struggle at work, so it's an option to look into. Ask your therapist if they will help you provide the paperwork. It's detailed and your answers need to be detailed, too. You can do it online, not send it, edit it often until you are satisfied.

    And of course you can rant here!

    I hope your week passes quickly.

    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.

    My story would take too long. But I've suffered from severe depression most of my life. I also have epilepsy, but it's under control w/meds.
