    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,

    (great, webmd post eating gremlin ate my first reply)

    ((((AZ)))) I hope today stops (deleted)ing on you, and you can have a quiet restful evening. You sound frazzled.

    I hope sleep brings some comfort to you and renews your drive to get answers and not get pushed around by those no responding to your needs.
    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.

    We care, AZ. I hope that venting here helped to ease the pressure at least a little bit. And I also hope you are able to take a break from it all and rest this evening.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    Thank you for your supportive words. I am very frazzled. I even worse today. I have so much pressure in my chest. I am not getting the sleep I need right now. I really hate my life. I just want to give up.
    I hate going to the drs everyweek. I hate the runaround BS redtape! I hate the medications. I hate it all! I am so angry and frustrated today.

    Dear AZ,

    Now and then throughout the day take deep long breaths. Slow yourself down and ease that pressure within.

    I hear how angry and frustrated you are. Keep writing here.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    I have been trying to catch my breath all day. I have so much anger. I cannot contain it. I hate feeling this way. On top of everything going on in my life a new memory has come to the surface. It makes me very sad. Very angry. The people who were supossed to protect me didn't. Its hard to wrap my head around it.
    Depression has once again reared his ugly head.

    Mellie thank you for your concern. Just listening and acknowleging my words is all you can do. It makes me feel like I am not alone and that someone in this world understands me.
    I don't know how more of this I can take. I am drained.

    I remember that overwhelming anger too. Know that this is part of the healing, tapping into justifiable anger at those who hurt you and/or didn't protect you. You will get through this too.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
