    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I'm so sorry you are feeling this way. You are describing, atleast to me, the way I feel before the really bad thoughts show up. I think living with BP already makes you strong; you shouldn't put more pressure on yourself to be more or do more than you can. And, does it matter if you do it slowly or quickly? Wanting to hurt yourself is still wanting to hurt yourself.

    Please, please reach out for help.
