    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!

    Kind of glad seeing so many new names here. A kind of sad/glad. I know I haven't been on much lately but having everyone here helps defeat the isolation of depression. The discussions, remarks, and thoughts help so much.

    Hey Demons
    I have been thinking about change, as in changes that happen around us. I have realised of late that I don't cope too well as things change around me.
    I found out last week that the dr that i see regularly will be away for 3 months, it just sent me into a spin. I know it is ridiculous to react in this way but it is a change to my coping strategies. Now I know I will get through it and I know I will be fine, I just find it interesting that change affects me so much.
    I am not sure if it is an age thing or depression that has caused this as in the past I have embraced change, infact welcomed it and worked towards it.
    Anyway, just want to say welcome to everyone that is new to the forum and hope that you all feel the same support that those of us who have been hanging around for a while feel.
    People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily...........Zig Ziglar
