    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Hello Again

    Been absent for a little while. I'll be going through old posts to see how everyone has been doing. Hoping I haven't upset anyone. I tried staying away for a bit to see if that would help, it hasn't. I have found that being here with you is a source of strength; of shared struggles with depression. I had to try this, it didn't help to be away.

    Hello. I just joined and I hope to be on this site more often because I found a lot of people's advice to post on. It has given me some sort of hope and extra help dealing with depression.

    I hope to post to more people's postings. I want this to be a place of help and support. I'm honestly hoping that I will meet someone here to talk to about my struggles and maybe provide some help on how to deal with depression more effectively.

    Welcome trees and welcome back demons!

    I'm glad you are here and hope that you do find support here that helps you feel better - in a big or small way.

    I find that just typing and posting can often have a cathartic effect since I spend so much time inside my own head

    Please keep posting - no topic is off limits!
