    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,

    Hey D, I have not, but I did look it up on the internet and it sounds like and interesting book. have you tried it?

    I see a psych and take meds, but that does not always help.Recently it is hard to get out of bed and get motivated to do anything. I sit and draw for hours so my mind doesnt take me where I don't want to go.

    Not sure why your asking, hope this helps.
    Take care,

    Hey Niteflier,

    Yes I have the book, and it has helped me. Can't speak for others - which is why I brought it up. I still have dark periods, but when I get real down I go back to parts and it helps some.

    Thank you D, I will give it a try and let you know how it works out.

    Take care and thank you for sharing.
