    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

    Visit our Crisis Assistance Link for resources. For immediate help, get to the ER.

    New and Blowing up your boards :)

    I know I might be killing the posts, especially since I'm brand new here, and this might be emotions talking, but I love this place. I love it. I needed it. I feel like no one understands. But here, you guys are awesome. I love it. I'm done now, but thank you!

    This place is wonderful and full of such sincere and loving ppl. I've been a member for about 6 or 7 yrs, I've lost count. The ppl here never let me know.

    I'm so glad that you found us. hugs
    You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

    Hi Lostwoman,

    Are you trying to start your own discussion? If so, this is how you do it:

    Hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you want) and Post.

    Caprice Dear, (maybe trigger)

    How about copying your post to everyone in Washington who is bailing out of their positions. Tell them not to delay, but go immediately to the Bipolar Support Board for help. Keep in mind that "We Know Crazy." That's why people love us.
