    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I saw my therapist on thursday and some startling realizations about my life and since then i have had to tell my self that there is a reason to wake up tommorow there is goodness in the world . allot of self talk because my life flame went out and i could have just slipt away in the night just been a death by natural causes thing like when guys retire from workin their whole life and lose that flame and just slip away before sunrise, anyway i saw my Pdoc today and i must have scared the heck out of him with that because he was like how about a nice rest in the hospital, an i said no i do not need a hospital i need to find my way back myself no hospital or therapy group is gonna do it its just gonna happen when it does on its own, and well some parts for my G/F's computer came in so i went down to put them in and her 22 yr old son was arguing with her 14 yr old daughter so as i worked on the computer , i mediated the kids ,the computer was happy the kids where happy my G/F was Happy and my life fire was burning again i had purpose i had use, i was not just a disabled mid life guy who lost the genetic lottery and his family.

    Hi TDXSP08,

    I did not want your post to go unanswered for a few days and wanted to let you know Caprice is home resting after gallbladder surgery.

    I am sure she will be happy you updated and glad you were able to get your life fire burning. It is obvious you care and support your G/F and her kids. I am impressed you could mediate an argument with them! They are lucky to have you in their lives.

    I'm so glad that you regained your fire, TDSXP08. When we let others in, even when it's the day-to-day things like what you describe, we can sometimes find our way back. It's in those connections that we breathe.

    Thank you for updating us here. I really appreciate it. (((hugs)))

    Welcome Home Caprice !!

    Hopefully your taking it easy and are well on your way to the healing process. We all love our moderators (and if you cant tell i have a special place in my heart reserved for you, which i will tell you if you promise not to laugh, it has to do with that innocent picture and your unique name and the only other Caprice i know)

    You made me smile, TDXSP08! See? :-) :-) :-)

    I hope being on WebMD, interacting with members and mods make YOU smile sometimes too.

    Thanks for the well-wishes!
