    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!

    Hi, NotYetAlive here... I had a liver transplant in 1989, but I would gladly give it up for any of you awaiting transplants if I could. I have a serious, serious problem with depression and Despair, a major mood disorder that we only discovered after the transplant. I've joined other groups like this, sharing my story, and have been almost universally shot down for being depressed after a transplant, as though a transplant should fix all of life's problems. Because I got mine as a transplant and had spent my entire life until then dying, I had never been prepared for life...and it's been a suffocating struggle of depression, self-harm, and Despair. With that caveat out of the way, let me say that I would like to be a blessing to any and all of you who will allow me to be. I hope this community won't be as judgemental as the others, and I'll have to leave if it is. But I'm hopeful it won't be. If any of you would like a friend, I'm here.
