    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,

    Hi Anon, I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. I can't imagine losing a child and then having the feeling that it was your fault. That would put me in a very dark hole that I don't know if I'd be able to get out of either.
    Here is a link to another thread that talks about free/low-cost care:
    I hope you can find something there that will get you the help you need.
    I would also call one of the numbers on the Crisis Resources page, they might also be able to point you to some good help too.
    I hope you can find the help you need.
