    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

    Welcome to Grumpy Groupies!!! This group is open to every one. I hope that all my buddies will join and use it often. Sad or happy, NO discussion is taboo. I do ask that you use Trigger in the title when necessary. Hopefully we can have fun and also support those who are having a hard time. Muahs
    Academic or Social Support?

    Hello, Groupies,
    I just scanned the main board and read how many readers would like to keep their contacts more clinical. I agree and I think it is very wrong of members not to reply to questions about Bipolar.

    Surprise!!! I don't know many answers about my illness, so I don't believe that I'm fit for service. Will restrain my participation to Grumpies and Coconuts. I just think it might work better that way.

    There are times you don't mean to say what you mean to say you mean.

    Goat honey, Don't ever, ever think that your not fit for the main board. Every and anyone is fit. I hardly know anything about Bipolar except for what I have been through. I can give support and love and also make ppl laugh. Thats who I am. The main board has always been open to any discussion. Heck, I've even talked about my LSC problems there (a woman problem) and it has nothing to do with Bipolar. I can't stand it when ppl. get pissy about the main board and what should and shouldn't be posted there. There will always be a few newbies who have nothing better to do but complain and accuse us of be *clicky*. Yes its true that *regulars* will have their posts replied to more often than *newbies*. It mostly because we know more about the *regulars* and we know how to respond to them better, if they are wanting support or just information. Thats how it is on all the boards. I've been to the Womans Health board and won't have my posts replied to but notice that regulars will get their replied to. I don't get upset about it because I know how it works on boards .

    Anyways, during the holidays we always get newbies and some of them are feeling miserable and want everyone else around them to feel miserable too. *rolling eyes*

    You keep on posting where ever you want. Don't let someone chase you off.
    When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!
