    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,

    I talk to my counselor today it felt good.I told her what happen over the weekend with my husband.Last saturday was the one year since I confronted one of the abusers.I had a bad weekend and felt very unsupportive from my husband.I am very hurt by his reaction.He just want me to be all heal and let go of the past.The counselor told me I should of call the hotline and talk with someone and I have in the past.But this time I isolated myself with all my emotions.It really affected me.We talk about planning out if this happens again and communicate with my husband in a better way.I also talk with him and he is agreeing in continuing some counseling to help us deal with this.Talking with the counselor she made me realize where I need to work on.But the past is there and it will never go away.I need to get the negative to postitive and realize when Im going the wrong direction.Today I try to go out to store to get out of the house since I haven't gone much.I use to get this way a while back and feeling it now really scares me I set back and I need to work on my issues of self esteem.She gave me alot to think about and to realize its not worth getting in a deep depression.It felt good to talk to someone because I feel alone.

    I'm so glad that talking with your counselor was so helpful and that you've made some headway with your husband!
