    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 working even more than full time! Taking a break right now.
    I'm really struggling and really want to do somany activities that I can't stand it. but I guess for right now i'm surviving the moments.

    I really do want to drink and that's about all I want to do. sigh

    I guess i'll put on the coffee...............I went to store today too.
    besides all the work I've been doing. I just can't go no more. ugh!!

    I guess i'll do more tomorrow and see if I can get caught up again.
    I'm really tired and getting a bad headache as well as stomach hurting. Talked to brother today he called and I spoke to him 25 mins. which I didn't really have the time but we're not talkin a lot so its ok for now.

    the good news is that my son and dil sent me a locket that has the birthstones on it. I have to look up which months are which.

    I'm goin to think of the locket and how much I've always wanted something like this. I'm amazed they thought of this. but I really really like it.

    yeah busy is good its just that i'm stretched to the outter limits. I've got all this personal stuff to do and the business will have to wait. ugh! o well. all of the personal stuff is very important and is for husband. I would have him do it but he has less time than I and isn't available during the day cept drive time in between jobs and to the nature of what needs to be done I'll save the poor guy the hassle. I'll just leave it as is. well back to the drawing board

    Sometimes when I feel like I am drowning at work and the anxiety is starting...I like to go to the bathroom...turn the water on....and just breathe and take a quick stretch. I just focus on that for a little...sometimes it helps reset my brain .
