    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,

    COMPLETELY UNABLE TO SPEAK ABOUT MY DAD

    This is the first time, I have said a word about my Dad who passed away in the worst, most horrible way imaginable. I have managed to keep it to myself. I broke out in huge round bloody sores all over my body, I had them biopsied and they were caused by extreme, extreme anxiety. I shake so badly all the time so I cannot use a pen, fork or any implement that requires manual dexterity.

    How do I stop it ?

    Dear Doxielover,

    I hope that you'll share more here and that it's only a first step to you getting the help you need and deserve.

    Are you in any kind of therapy? It's okay to need help processing loss and trauma. (((hugs)))

    I do not understand what is happening ?? I have had no reaction at all. I reached out here, because I was hoping for some help. I have pushed everyone out of my life.

    Hi Doxielover,

    There is no right or wrong way to grieve and trauma can take time to process.

    Talk here as much as you need to. Tell us about your dad.

    But please also consider therapy to help you with all of this.

    It sounds like it's time to change what you're doing and start inviting others back in to your life, little by little. (((hugs)))
