    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

    My boyfriend is gone at a camp with no form of communication. And I have expirienced hair loss, a recent breakout, and a spike in my pre existing OCD. How do I cope with this or what can I do?

    Hi LingLing,

    Think through what it is that is frightening you about his absence. Write it out if it helps, journal, write to him (even though you can't contact him), etc.

    Are you keeping busy while he's away?

    I encourage you to post your message on our Anxiety & Panic Community. Dr. Farrell there may have some thoughts for you.
