    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,

    I have not found any help for my depression. Could I be doing more harm to my family and friends by staying around?
    MissCaptainKirk responded:
    No, you aren't doing them any harm Are you able to find some help, like you've tried finding help and nothing has worked or you haven't tried yet?
    deeperin2 replied to MissCaptainKirk's response:
    I have tried finding help in the past. I no longer feel confident I will find help. I don't have the energy to start again anyway. I don't want to worry my family. Which is easier now that I live alone.
    deeperin2 responded:
    The only thing I have found that helps my depression is Self Injury. But it is a vicious circle. I have managed to stay away from it. I am worried I may start again, may have to start again.

    I would urge you to look into

    You need some relief and support. These organizations also are wonderful:

    Hopefully there is a local support group you can attend and / or an online support system.

    You are not alone, please take a look.
