    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 Eurolady,

    It's a few days later and the holidays are behind us now... how are you doing? I know they can be particularly difficult when there's been any kind of loss, including the loss of a relationship.

    But here you are, on the other side of them. You can get through this and spring is around the corner.

    Isolation, as you've realized, is your enemy. Find ways to connect with your family in Europe... on facebook, with Skype, in email, any way you can. If you can afford to go see them, do that.

    Do you work? If not, and if friends are also scarce, consider volunteering in your community and/or starting some hobbies. Anything and everything to get yourself out and reconnecting with others.

    The end of a marriage is never easy so allow yourself time to get through this. If you need help, talk with your doctor and/or consider therapy. Talk with any friends you have and let them know you're struggling. And take care of your physical health each and every day even though you may not now see the point. That means getting up, showering, maybe going for a walk, eating healthy, not drinking regularly, etc.

    Little by little, you'll get through this.
