    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.

    I'm here too. I'm tired and didn't even get out of my pj's today even in front of my employees and they were ok with it! I was really glad! I still feel like a mack truck ran over me!
    my neck and leg are is disarray and my left lung hurts badly but nothing seems to show up on cat or xray.

    i hope we all start feeling better soon cuz i feel very depressed.
    lovely_lemon_tree replied to jankearney123's response:
    I am here, though not as much as I used to be.

    I am exhausted. I'm doing a peer support training and it's all day long and I have to drive an hour there and back. And to top it off, I had a super-duper lactose intolerance reaction, so that was an unpleasant surprise. I agree with Fran, I feel like I just was run over by a truck.

    I am also quite depressed. Money is my current trigger (When isn't it?) and the job situation has gone back to the drawing board. I'm so tired. I don't have the energy to do this stuff again. But I need the money.

    (BTW, DAMN you individuals who say there is a job for everyone who wants one -- it's a bunch of horse dung!!!)

    It sounds like everyone here is struggling so I really appreciate you saying hello anyway.


    Time for another escape, I think. Who's with me and where are we going and what will you bring along?

    finally got a chance to check in! phew. been busy finding an apartment and now getting ready to move- coaching and practice is all over this week so I'll have more time to get all that stuff done. we move-in on June 15th! going to be a far drive for me but atleast we will FINALLY be together and not 1.5hrs apart (for the last 2yrs).


    Wish I could have gotten on here last week, it sucks this site doesnt work on my droid my bf and I were arguing (prob over furniture...) and I have a very hard time putting my feelings into words so I just kind of shut down vocally. instead i push it down and it turns into a series of self-harm. this time it was punching (thighs/head). He heard it over the phone and I did admit to it. It is unnerving to reflect on. As if I dont know who that person is who comes out of me and hurts me like that (yeah I know its me and all, just sayin). Sorry a rambled, just been holding that in. Thanks for letting me vent.
    Kate_Te replied to rugger1369's response:
    Welcome back Rugger,
    I'm sorry you were struggling last week. I've done the beat on yourself thing. Kinda satisfying until you have to explain the bruises. I did it over a guy too...Some of them just seem to make my self esteem drop through the floor. They are also frustrating as hell!! But if you find the right one....
    Hope you & BF enjoy living together. Glad to see you back here.

    I'm here...just busy getting ready for my boys to be out of school for the summer. Why does summer seem busier than the school year?


    I had a 'moment' yesterday...and I'm experiencing some self loathing for giving in to the...

    I don't know. Desire? Need? Urge? Whatever it got the best of me.

    I lost my mother (who I was extremely close to) just over 2 years ago and even though I have children of my own and AM a mother...I don't do well with Mother's Day.

    Wow...that was depressing...sorry ladies...
    Kate_Te replied to besmith75's response:
    B -
    Sorry to hear about your struggles. I understand about mother's day. I lost my mom 6 years ago, but it still hurts bad. Hope you can enjoy the day for yourself, accepting the love of your children.
    besmith75 replied to Kate_Te's response:
    Thank you Kate. It's horrible and sad that you understand (and my heart breaks for you), but I appreciate your kind words. I haven't celebrated Mother's Day since 2009. I always let my boys go see their grandma. My boyfriend wants to take me to a champagne brunch on Sunday...I'm still on the fence with that one...
