    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,

    when do you know when to ask for help? And are to afraid to because of shame. I don't know how to break the cycle I think I was taught very young to keep quiet.

    I think you ask for help when you need that help... when you feel helpless or are tired of doing it alone. There are many kinds of help, too, so it depends on what kind you need. There are crisis lines, if you don't know where to turn and are feeling lost. There are support groups like this if you need a listening ear. There are medical professionals if the problem is there.

    One thing that will help clarify your question, is to remind yourself that you are a worthy human being who deserves the same happiness and chances as everybody else. Another way to answer your own question is imagine that a friend is telling you about the same problems you have, and think what advice you would give them. That's something I need to do more often, but it really can make a difference.
