    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,

    Adult sibling with Asperger's

    I am 23 and my 26-year-old sister has Asperger's. She has never had many friends, but now that we're older this is causing some issues. We are both recent college graduates, but whenever I mention moving out or make plans without her, she becomes extremely upset. She says I am her best friend and may be the reason she's alive (she has been treated for depression, suicidal thoughts and cutting) which makes me feel guilty and fearful that she will flip out if I leave. How can I show her that the world won't end if we have our own lives?
