    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,

    Lost all hope
    lexismom11 posted:
    I am feeling very sad and angry today. I have lost all hope that I will ever be better. I am going to see another doctor on Tuesay to see if there is anything the he can do to help me. So I will see how that goes. Until then, I am not sure what I am going to do. Even then, I have a lot of doubts as to whether I can even be helped. My depression is so bad right now. I just feel completely defeated like everything I do is pointless and my life means nothing.

    It gets better I felt the exact same way before I found the right meds.

    I am not feeling so hot tonight. My sister went home today and that makes me really sad. Not sure what to do with the sadness. It just gets added to all of the sadness that already exists. I just don't don't have any more words right now.

    I am feeling like I don't belong anywhere. I am an outsider looking in. Everything I do is difficult, even sleeping. I either sleep too much or not enough. I am not worthly of a good life. I just want to cry but I can't. Nothing can help me. I feel like I am going crazy because I can't control my depression or my thoughts.

    Sometimes the biggest source of inspiration comes from the person you see in the mirror everyday. Look yourself in the face and remember you ARE worth it!
