    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 am so sick of being sick, I am just sick of everything!! I truly don't think i will ever get better. I am in bed almost 247, I forced myself to get up and go to my daughters last softball game. Everyone was going out to eat and choose to come back home to bed. Its just been an emotional roller coaster that I am ready to get off of but it won't stop to let me off.

    This is effecting my kids, I just know it is. They have been acting out and talking back mean things to me. And the oldest is only 7. I just don't know what to do anymore.

    I love my husband, he has been so supportive and I am so lucky to have him next to me through this.

    Thanks for letting me vent. I am so tired and lost right now I don't know what to do.

    I'm sorry Lis! Have you called any of the Crisis Assistance numbers yet? I think you really should, if you haven't. And I'm glad that you've started on the Wellbutrin, but I'm worried for you. Are you keeping in close contact with your Pdoc?
    I wish I had some magic words to say that would make it all better for you, or some magic pill, but we all know that depression would never be so kind as to allow that easy of a fix. I get downright angry at it sometimes. I hope you are going to be ok today....and tomorrow...and the next day. Is there someone who can take your kids for the day? Maybe even every other day for this week? I mean, what if you were in a bad accident and couldn't care for them, is there someone you would feel comfortable taking them for you? Or is there even a daycare they could go to? Do you have them all day or just in the evenings? (Not sure if they go to public school or if you are homeschooling).
    I think you need someone to unplug the merry-go-round so you can take a break.
