    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,

    It depends a lot on what your innermost self really wants to do. I've been doing a lot of dancing with the reaper lately. Somewhere inside, though, if someone were to try to kill me, I would still fight back, and thus I know I really do want to live.

    My problem is I can't go there because I have a child who would have no one without me. She is autistic and I am so afraid of my cancer coming back (cancer survivor) and feel so much guilt at the thought of abandoning her but secretly almost wish something would happen to me that is beyond my control, therefore not my fault. I just try to take one day at a time. Its all any of us can do.

    I have no children, but would not hurt my mother (also a cancer survivor). I just can't seem to shake the feelings, then I wake up the next day. One day at a time......
