    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!

    Been a LONG time since I have posted...

    I received an email a while back from someone replying to my post and wondering how I was doing... I was not ready to post anything at that time. It is such a long story as to everything that has transpired since I last posted but... In a lot of ways I am doing better... Some ways I have new battles to face...

    My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of the year so I have been busy taking care of her. Hopefully they got it all this time and she seems to be on the road to recovery.

    My husband recently accepted a new job, after we BOTH discussed it. See, he will be traveling and RARELY ever home. So, this leaves me kind of alone... My youngest son moved back in last October so he is here, but he works nights. Fortunately my landlord FINALLY put deadbolts on my doors so hopefully I sleep somewhat better.

    Fortunately, I am very confident in my husband staying faithful as I know I will with him. He is my true soulmate and we are just really good together. I do worry about getting lonely and really missing him though.

    My middle son still has barely any contact with me but I am dealing with it. (See my bio for information on this)

    I am LOVING being a grandmother and get to babysit him at least 1 day a week! He is just over a year old now and just brings a smile to my face every time I see him!

    I have not been able to see my therapist since December but and going back in the next couple of weeks. My psychiatrists office is making some changes and I cannot get back in til July but, they will refill my meds as needed.

    I usually do not have much to say to others as I am not good with advice, words, or anything. I am always at a loss for words and always afraid of saying something wrong.

    I came back because I feel the need to establish some support again as I get through my husbands new job... I do not have any friends in real life as well... Maybe I am just kinda backwards... I am just so used to it being my husband & I. I do not work but am planning on starting some volunteer work to get me out of the house more.

    Anyhow... That is me...
    Peace, Love, and Hugs...
