    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,

    Loss of father

    Having a down day and wishing I could see or speak to my father again. I would have opened up more to him.....whom am I kidding. I probably would not have the nerve now, as I didn't then, to talk freely with him. Strange, his family (my step family) said they never had that problem. i.e. he was easy to talk to, gave them advice and positive feedback.....He acted the opposite with me and my siblings, he was very judgmental - only had negative things to say to us - about how we looked or didn't have a 'worthy' jobs, etc. Perhaps this is part of the grief process or another excuse for feeling like I do. I am an outsider not only in life but family as well - by choice - do not know how to communicate with others.
