    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,

    I'm so sick of getting marks in the middle of the night. they chase me until i stop then they attack me and try to eat me alive i never get any sleep anymore i got 1hr of sleep last night but thats usually my limit when i lay down i dont want to die in my dreams. im afraid that if i die in my dreams ill die in real life too im so terrified of the night and i wish it would just go away they haunt me every night and i dont know how to cope with it because im afraid of falling asleep and i wanted to know if there was anyone out there that was going through the same thing i was going through i dont want to be alone anymore its like noone understands me because i dont know anyone who is going through the same thing im going through. its rough and i dont want to go through this alone. Does anyone understand?
