    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,

    This is my first time really seeking any form of forum for my depression. I was trying to convince myself I wasn't stressed or depressed I guess; anyway its so bad now that I contemplate hurting myself. First it was just others but now its me as well. I shake and have queezy feelings in my stomach, can't eat (no appetite), can't sleep. I think I've lost about 15lbs in the past 2 weeks. I have no one to talk to but I need help...please...

    Hello. Have you tried to find a psychologist? I've found they can be very helpful. Often times it helps to just be able to talk.

    I have but based on my current situation that is not an option now because of cost and location. I was hoping this site would provide some help

    You are welcome to come here and talk about anything you need to. Coming here is a good start. There are other websites and forums out there as well. Sure, a counselor could be helpful (less expensive than a psychologist and often very good) but often we have to do what we can with what we have.

    Far better to reach out in a place like this, and at least get a listening ear and some perspective, than go entirely without because you can't afford the "best" option.

    Even if you don't feel comfortable talking to others, journaling can be really good too. Just having a safe place to get those thoughts and feelings out is so incredibly helpful.

    Thank you for posting!
