    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,

    Hi J
    Welcome back and well done on completing your treatment. I know we are all very proud of you.
    As for how were you before you left - I think it is fair to say we were all very worried about you and could see that you had pretty much got to a very low point.
    It is so good to see you back up and running and looking forward to seeing you around

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

    Welcome back to the world, jaws! So glad you made it through treatment! How do you feel?

    As for how you were before you left, were you reading your old posts?
    We all have our bad days/times/seasons. Can't really place the blame anywhere except on that darned disease...depression makes us do pretty desperate things.

    Glad you're back!

    jaws86 replied to jaws86's response:
    Hi family, told doctor would like to wean off pain meds while I find an alternate way of effective pain control. I know yall are angry at me for the failure, I think there is no safe way for me to take pain meds. I dont know how long the weaning process is going to take but I have another challenge to face. I apologize sincerely.

    I have no idea what you keep apologizing for. Good luck.
    alaska_mommy replied to jaws86's response:
    jaws, you just do what you need to do for you. Keep posting here, no one is angry at you. We just want to see you doing better. So you work on doing that! I'm proud of you for seeking help on this. You take care of yourself.
