    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!

    I have been through so much in my life and passed up many opportunities. I am living check to check and that is still not working. I just got a roommate and still trying to catch up. I had this life once with my boyfriend for 10 years and he left me. My parents died at 13 so i have no one to help me. I am trying to get a second job but nothing is working. I graduated collage but only with 2.0 gpa and dont know if any grad school will take me. Does anyone know if any online schools will take me with such a low gpa.... I need to find meaning in my life. I have no kids no family no new man...I work for a ok job with benefits but i am so much with bills i want to give up on it all... I really need someone to talk to..... Help in Delaware

    The only way to know for sure if a graduate school is going to take you is if you apply or talk to someone in admissions. Don't be discouraged if the first one or two don't take you because I believe there is a school that will take you. Good luck and I hope you find a good school to go to.

    Hey there,

    Sorry things are so hard for you right now. How old are you and what kind of degree do you have?

    Here's an idea--and I can say it comes from personal experience--think about doing some kind of volunteer work. Maybe tutor/mentor kids, do something for old folks, or (my fav) see if there's a Habitat for Humanity house project in your area and participate. It will really help with the Life meaning thing, and a plus is you will meet new people, and possible get some physical exercise with helps too. I tend to pull in when I am depressed. I've found that is not the best idea. It really helps me to step out of myself and help others.

    I am sure you can find some kind of online grad school but before you do that, do you know what you want to do? Being a perpetual student isn't such a fun thing.
