    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Hi, all.

    I have decided that I'm feeling a bit more stable than before... meaning that I feel stable enough to come back here and check in. I think I will be around more now.

    Medication increase is helping, Wednesday will be a full week on the new dosages and I do feel a bit better. I'm by no means feeling fantastic and wonderful, but I am able to face the day and not cower in a ball on the couch all day long. I'm catching up on much-needed sleep and trying to reduce stress (hahah!).

    Hopefully I will be working soon in a little gift shop in Bar Harbor. They are looking for someone who has experience selling jewelery (that would be me) and as a result of that, my resume, and a quick, on-the-spot interview, I am apparently at the top of a hefty stack of applications. I hope it works out. I will call the manager today and see what's going on. Keep your fingers crossed -- I really need this job.

    Still waiting to hear from the graduate program I applied to. The longer the wait, the more pessimistic I become. Oh well, if I wind up not getting in, I have contingency plans -- I'll keep up the job, try to save some money, and keep working on my peer support certification. At the end of my lease, on November 30, I will pack up and go back to Kansas (please don't make any "Wizard of Oz" references... I've heard them all).

    So that's me in a nutshell right now. Hope everyone is doing okay.

    Hey there, LLT, it's good to see you.

    I'm glad the new dosage seems to be helping and I'll keep my fingers crossed re the job! That sounds like it would be a good fit for you!
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
