    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,

    One Day At A Time

    We did it today, something others said was impossible. We faced another day. We are survivors. We might not have had a great day, but we got through it. Hopefully without any self harm or other things we do to hurt ourselves.

    I wish I felt as strong as the above sounds. I am physically, mentally and emotionally battered today. I WILL NOT give in. I will not allow it to seduce me into it's cold embrace.

    I want to say thank you to all of you for being here, it gives me hope. Chez, MyRain, Niteflier, A.Mom, Jaws, and everyone else here today. You are proof there is hope to grasp at.

    I have to second the above... Chez1 and Alaska_Mommy have been awesome to me today and the other day andI have only just got started here. It really seems to be a good community and I can only hope to be as positive as they are...
    Peace, Love, and Hugs...

    Well said D, we have to keep fighting and being here for each other when it gets tough. I think if as I group we can't pull together and get some joy out of life then no one with depression has a hope.
    Everyone here should be proud of themselves everyday for posting and keeping going
    Hugs to all

    People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily....... Zig Ziglar

    I love this!!! ! It's an inspiration to me and everyone else here. Do not give in! I felt so much strength when I read this. Thank all of YOU for being there for me and caring only in the short time I've been here. You all inspire me.

    Sending hugs to you Demons.

    D, thanks for the pep talk, you are an inspiratoin to us too. Sometimes just hearing positive words can lift the spirits.
    Whether you're battered or not, D, I know you are stronger than you think. You will survive this, and you will learn how to thrive despite it.
    We will make it!
