    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,

    I want to talk to someone so bad about how I feel, but I am embarrassed, ashamed, and feel like no one really understands. My husband doesn't understand and he says its all in my head.

    I understand the shame and embarrassment. I've been there. Thank you for posting anyway. Sometimes it is good to just let out your feelings in whatever way, whether talking face to face, journal writing, or posting online. You are welcome here. I doubt your problems are all in your head, but even if they are, that doesn't invalidate them. They are still yours and worthy of acknowledgement so you can eventually heal and deal with them. I'm going through a rough patch as well right now, so I want you to know, one person is reading at least.

    I know how you feel. My husband feels the same way or says nothing at all and it is like speaking to a brick wall. I have 4 daughters and not one of them understand what I go through some days especially being 60 they blame it on "the change". Well been going through that for a long time so I don't think it is that. I turned to this page for hoping to get some help. I believe talking with people who have the same problems help. You do have people here who will listen to you and hopefully get you feeling a bit better. Don't be embarrassed or ashamed there is no reason to feel that way. Remember people don't make you feel that way, you do. More people/friends may sympathize with you but don't understand what you are going through. Hang in there and keep posting!!
