    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,

    My worlds collided on Sunday. The gentle voice could not control the "evil" voice. On the brink of destroying the best relationship i've ever had. Went to the doctor and was prescribed Paxil - had a bout of this many years ago and this worked last time. Spent most of yesterday reading about depression and feel like I should have taken care of this a year ago. A YEAR AGO! Can't believe i have felt so bad for so long. Guessing this has been going on for 2 years. [br>[br>Not sure why i'm writing on a website to total strangers. Feel as though it may validate my feelings. A need for understanding.

    That moment of realization sure is bittersweet, isn't it? It's wonderful that there is a solution, but there really is a mourning for all that lost time. I have that a lot too. What I tell myself is "at least I didn't discover it a year from now. Time to move on and make the best of all the time I have left!"
