    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,

    Severly Depressed

    Someone please help me! I have no real family and friends. Everyone I know has a close family and friends. I had a few friends, they don't call me anymore. They don't know what it's like to be in my shoes. My poor son. He is all I have and a husband who is always working. I am afraid my son will think being this alone is normal. When he grows up, he doesn't have any family or siblings. I can't take this anymore! What can I do? Someone please help me!!

    Severly - I hear your cry for help but I don't have the capability to help you. Please contact your physician and tell them how you are feeling. There are a lot of reasons for depression and you will need to sort that out. I must take my antidepressants every day or I am in the same boat as you. It is no one's fault - not yours - not your husband's - not your son's. But it is your responsibility to make the move to take action to get a handle on the depression. Go see your doctor!
