    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.
    Life's Daily Frustrations

    I KNOW I am supposed to be grateful for what I have. And I try to be. I write gratitude lists. I read inspirational books. I do "random acts of kindness". And, yet, just getting through the day with daily life's frustrations can be so hard for me. I know that other people have the frustration of the yard man not showing up... or worries about money, etc.... or the car needs washing...or the car needs brakes... But, for me, it feels overwhelming. And I know all the "right" things to do...break it down to what has to be done, use a dbt skill, call a supportive friend. But, honestly, folks I am just tired of living. I wish God would be kind and take me in a car crash... then it would be over. And this has been one of my better weeks. I really don't feel like I have anything to look forward to. But I don't want to discourage others... This too shall pass... I am just feeling frustrated.
