    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,

    But the thoughts of my past keep on creeping in to my mind.I try to stop them.It gets me upset.I keep remembering what the counselor told me it just keep on having control of me.I also sometimes feel in a daze and the feelings are so familiar.But I try to be in the present to be here present for my family and my self.Im trying to pull myself from this so familiar feeling. Thanks for listening to me

    Graduating is such an exciting time for parents and kids alike. Though I admit I had more fun when they graduated from primary school. Congrats to your son on entering Junior college in the fall! And congrats to you on helping him get there. I know how much that can take sometimes.

    Good for you for holding on to the positives and putting one foot in front of the other. Have you talked with your T about coping strategies to help you deal with all these thoughts that weigh on you? Therapy is a great place to air all the issues, even journalling, but you still need to live a life in between. I hope your T is able to help you get there.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
