    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!

    Tomorrow I will have breakfast with an old friend.We haven't talk for a while.She is an old neighbor where we use to live before.She saw me go thru my deep depressions and my lowest.She took care of me and was my guardian angel.I told her about the sexual abuse and she listen.So Im excited to meet with her and talk about life and our kids.I don't have many friends and it makes me feel good to connect with other.I do feel sad because it has always been difficult to keep friends or trust.My counselor tells me that I need to go out and make friends.Join some class or activity to make friends but its hard.That is something that I want to try to get myself to do.Its very lonely and I find myself feeling sad.I feel that here I can feel comfortable and speak out how I feel.I have trust issues and I just wish it was easier.

    I hope you had a nice time with your old friend.

    Regarding making new friends, your T gave some good advice. I would also suggest that you join something just for IT and if friendships are made through that, all the better. Find a hobby or activity you'd like and pursue it, join something you'd enjoy for its own sake... the friendships can then follow naturally over time with people who have similar interests.

    I had a nice breakfast with my friend.We had alot to talk about.We met when I was going thru a very rough depression.She was there help me taking the boys to school.He help was so appreciated and I will alwayls remember that she made a big difference in my life.She was the first person to tell about my abuse.She was there when I was in inpatient hospital.We had not talk about the issue for a while so I told her what I did and how things have change my life and how I see it now.She was glad I was ok and she told when I need to talk to call her.It made me so comforting.I also listen to her struggles with teeagers that we have in comment.Overall I enjoyed our meeting and we told each other that we need to do this more often.
