    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 have a 5 pm appointment for med mgt. I have to take the bus there & back. I'm taking my mp3 with meditations. I just hope I can return without shaking. Wish me luck!

    Kate_Te, Is having a car just completely not an option for you? I know you live in the city so maybe it isn't but if it is an option maybe you could consider it? With my anxiety I know public transportation would just not be an option. With my truck I know that if I do have a panic attack or just can't handle things, I can always leave. That knowledge alone I believe allows me to not panic and to sometimes leave the house.

    Anyway, good luck and I hope you do great!

    New York State would like $1000 before they will return my license to me. A thousand I just don't have. (Never drive without insurance).

    On a positive note, I went, had my appointment & returned home - no shakes!!!!!!!!!!!


    My plan seems to be working!
