    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,

    Need to Vent

    My husband and i are 70 years old with lots of health problems and no one to help us. I am so frustrated with everything that is happening to us. We are pretty isolated from other people (our doing) and have no one but each other to talk to. Unfortunately that doesn't help. He is part of my frustration. I feel like i could scream my head off but don't think that would help. Thanks for just having a place that i can release this to.

    It is nice to have a place to vent. My problem with my husband is that I have no one to share it with. If I were to tell my friends or family, they would hate him and I don't want that, writing can be very therapeutic.

    Just writting that i am having difficulty dealing with all of our issues helped. My husband leaves everything to me to deal with and sometimes i feel overwhelmed. Knowing that i could say what i did and not be judged made me feel better. I hope this Community is a help to you.

    If you ever need to vent something that you really don't want seeing the light of day, there is an anonymous button you can use too. The others are right, it's good to have a place you can just let it out.
