    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,

    Desperate for help

    I need a place to come and vent and share that is not monitored by everybody like facebook!! I am suffering from depression/anxiety, in recovery from alcohol and drug addition, and have chronic pain from osteo arthritis. Plus I have no ins and no money lol. I am looking for support, acceptance, resources, love, kindness. I don't need anymore guilt, criticism, or judgment:( I try and help others as it helps me but getting desperate here and really really really need some outlet and support!!! Thanks.

    I am so sorry your going through this. I don't know if your a christian, but Jesus does love you and will wash away all your sins if you accept him as lord and savior and repent about your sins. The fruit of the spirit is love, kindness, joy, peace, gentleness, and faithfulness. I won't judge you, in fact I can say that I love you because of what Jesus has done in my life. Please don't ever give up. I will be praying for you! You are a wonderful person!

    Welcome. You have found that place here. I completely hear you regarding Facebook, all the drama is one of the reasons why I quit that, and I don't like being monitored any more than you do. If you ever feel the need to vent but want to be totally private about it, you can also post here anonymously.

    I totally respect your efforts in recovery. That can be really hard, and it's even harder without a support network. If you don't mind some pseudo religion, the 12 step programs are free and can at least get you some support and companionship. There are also other support groups out there, online and offline, that might meed your needs better.

    Till then, it's good to have you and you can come here when you need to.
