    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,

    How do you know...

    I have a 21 year old daughter who is a very bright and intelligent girl. She was diagnosed as ADD in high school but doesn't like the effects medication has on her. Lately, one doctor has mentioned that perhaps she has been misdiagnosed and has depression, rather than ADD. We have tried ADD medication, counseling, etc and nothing has seemed to help. She graduated from high school with honors and is struggling big time with school. She is sick a lot with allergies and/or stomach issues. Could it be depressions? How ccan we find out without it costing a fortune? We can't afford much more. She is planning on getting married in November. I just hate for her to start this new phase of her life if there is something more that we, as parents, could have done to help.
