    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!

    Depressed, need urgent help
    Verydepressed30 posted:
    Im a 24 year old girl. I've been feeling very dejected and disoriented for about a year. I suffered from mild depression while in high school,but just pushed it aside then. Things are much worse now. I have lost interesting EVERYTHING I loved doing. I used to love life. I don't know what's happening to me now. I'm crying almost everyday. I constantly worry about things I have no control over, old parents, finding a job, doing something with my life. I'm also in a long distance relationship and it's been very hard, even more so because of my negative thoughts. Lately, I have been thinking of suicide. I'm so fed up being like this. I'm just scared I' might do something. I don't wanna debut living like this is very painful. Please help me. There are no counsellor where I live. Please help.

    Hey, Good afternoon. Name is Phil. All is not lost and we all can help. I have been in the same boat an now with this site and the help of therapists I am working it through. I am not going to tell you it is an easy road, but it is. We are here for you. I got some real good advice and research from this site which seems to help. Hang in there and keep talking. Believe I could tell you some stories, of things I have lost. Try to keep smiling and post those things that drive you crazy in the past and tell yourself, you are going to have a bright and powerful future. Leave whatever you have in the past.

    Hello verydepressed30, i am sorry you are having such a rough time, but am glad you found this forum. Everyone here is very supportive and nonjudgemental and will help you in any way we can. I have a few questions, you do not have to answer if you do not want to.....will not be offended.
    do you know what kind of a job you are looking for?
    why a long distance relationship and how far apart are you both?
    There are help lines you can contact and the people are very carring and supportive as well. They are 'real time' where unfortunately this site is not and there are people from all over the world i.e. different time zones. the numbers are on this site and I will try to find the link and post next.
    Hang in there.
    Sending (((Hugs))) your way.
