    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,

    Good Things

    Sometimes, when things start to get dark and suffocating and we don't think we can go on, it's important to remember the good things in our lives.

    What are the good things in your life?

    Some of the good things in mine are:

    The love from my family and friends
    You guys here!
    My Savannah
    The lovely still-cold nights
    The cool days
    My mental health team
    The couple of pounds I have lost...

    Very true LLT.

    Being able to vent and probably rave and have people here who understand.
    My wascally wabbit and his ornery ways. *Looks at Foxy with a raised eyebrow, "Yes, you."*
    Cooler weather coming my way.
    My crafts that keep me sane... Okay, well mostly sane anyway.
    Hot cocoa.

    Anyone else?

    Where there is shadow, there is light.

    Good lists, LLT and Rose. Thanks for the inspiration. It's okay to vent when we need to, but I do try not to go into a ditch for too long. I'm pulling myself back to together today and want to get back on track after a frustrating couple of days.

    My "vacation" is still looking busier and busier, and it's hard to guard it to get the respite I need. Sigh. An older lady borrowing my storage room is gearing up and getting her various storage places cleared out (including mine) for a church yard sale coming up and to do an "estate" sale" as she has had to downsize into a much smaller place, but she is an early bird, and I am NOT, and I so wanted to relax a bit on my days off in the mornings, but now she is talking about needing to come over on Wednesday or Thursday. I think I will put my foot down and state that I will be home working on things but she simply cannot show up until 11 a.m. I'm working on setting healthy boundaries when needed to keep my sanity, and this will just have to one of them.

    So, here's to healthy boundary setting!

    Not really making a list here, but my pets are right up there with Foxy.

    And....having hope. I have to fight against encroaching hopelessness at times, and God whispers His reminders to me to calm me down.
