    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,

    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.

    How and Why to Report a Post
    stressed and grumpy and needing a vent

    [TRIGGER] Dunno if anything ould be a trigger so probably best to not even bother reading to begon with. Just need to get some crap off my chest

    Stressed with work and unrealistic expectations and morons. How people get through medical schol these days and be as dumb, ignorant and arrogant I really do not know.

    Feeling beyond fat. Have decided to stop the seroquel and hope the weight comes off with that. But in the meantime back into my former extreme diet methodologies. Determined to loose 30lbs before my trip. And the trip is yet another stress. Need this darned medical form and I have everything but one piece of information I cannot track down for the life of me. Need the insurance policy number etc and me being dumb arse me I have lost that paperwork. Have sent my travel agent an email and hope she can access it otherwise I probably just [aid 20+G for a trip I will nto be allowed to take

    Fighting nasty headache at the moment. Stressing even more and mroe as the moments pass. Have torn my apartment apart looking for this info and fear it is soemwhere in a stack of crap at my parents 4hrs from here. Cannot pop in to see said travcel agent since they too are 4hrs from here. ARRRRGH!!!! Doing 12hr shifts for mext 2 days so cannot call and hope she is in office Panic panic panic. The only good thing about the panic is I can hope it revs the metabolism and helps drop this excess poundage. Ultimate goal is 100+ but hopefully 30 before january

    just not in great place and stressed beyond belief. WOrking myself into a good tizy and needing rest. Perhaps I will start off the seroquel friday so I can spend the weekend as sleepless and hopefully be straightened back together for the next 2 12s

    just spinning out of control. Hate that I am losing stuff and my mind....

    Breathe. Rest. Take something for the headache. If able use phone and contact someone to assist you in getting what you need.

    Discuss weight issues with pdoc or psych. Meds can cause weight gain. A good tool is the webmd diet/fittness journal. AWESOME.

    Take care of you.
    I have acheived my dream of being a kyte, for a single day, riding the wind. The anchors that held me down lifted... I was set free.. Now my journey of healing is possible. Gra' Bonnie
