    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.

    You all helped me outsmart myself.

    Without going into detail, there's a thing I've been wanting to do. It is not illegal or anything like that. It still would not be a smart/necessary/good thing to do, but it seemed like a very good idea.

    So I've been wandering around feeling even more frustrated than normal. Fortunately I've also been reading here a lot. This morning my brain put it all together and sent me a message: "The depression is making you want to do this!"

    And I thought "By golly, that's IT!" And now the urge is gone.

    So thanks!

    When the world says, Give up,

    Thanks. I should have been clear that this wasn't anything to do with harming myself or someone else. But I probably wouldn't have brought it up when I (FINALLY) have my therapy appointment. Which I need to confirm. Yikes!

    Depression makes the brain filter out a lot of good info and tends to shade everything to the negative. A first step in cognitive therapy is to be aware your mind/brain are doing this to you. Pick up on it and start challenging the automatic negative thoughts.. Good job!
