    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?

    worn1 responded:
    have you been to see a doctor or self medicating. If you have not been to see a doctor do see one. you can not fix this problem yourself. If you are seeing a doctor get a second opinion as it appears he/she does not have a clue as to what the problem is. This is nothing to ignore you need to get it taken care of now.
