    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.

    When I start feeling very anxious I PUSH myself to get out and walk we have hills and nice sidewalks.
    I watch the gold hills and listen to the birds
    I feel the sun and wind hit my face
    I walk walk walk until I want to

    Another is when I feel down I let my emotions come I cry and let it out.I journal and put it all in paper I express my feeling.

    I read affirmations I like them because its simple thoughts and I take them in.More when I feel negative.

    Music it has always been one of my favorite things to do listen it relax me and it lift my spirit up.

    I talk to myself remind positive thinking.

    I watch comedy shows or tv shows that are funny to laugh.

    I talk to the people that support me and will LISTEN

    I just try to take care of this childwithin that feels overwhelmed.
