    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!

    Well, here goes my first therapist visit. I am pretty nervous, even though I know it will be in my best interest to do this. Just filling out the questionaire was very upsetting! I had a few good days, but the apprehension about tommorrow has sent me into a tailspin. Ugh.

    I'm sure you'll feel a lot better afterwards.Therapy hurts because you're opening up wounds to clean them so they can heal. Let us know how thin[a style="COLOR: #006699; CURSOR: pointer" id=exchange-post-enabled_A8 class=template-reply-post onclick="LoginCreatePost(this,'couples-coping-support-group','3'); return false;"> gs went, will you?
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    Working through something you wished to never experience is frightening to say the least. We all wish for an instant fix to the issues so we can put it behind us. Remember the good days during the bad ones, it may help lighten the bad ones. I hope your therapist is a good fit/match for you.

    Good luck! Let us know how it goes for you.
