    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.

    Looking for BP penpal
    tulsatim posted:
    Hi! I have been looking for a penpal that has been bp for quite some time. I have been fighting this thing, or living with it, for 26 years. I won't go into my story, because I'm sure it is much like yours. Just want someone to support, get support, have good discussions, share tips, etc.

    welcome to the board.
    tulsatim replied to slik_kitty's response:
    Thanks slik! What's next? I have come to the very strong realization, after years of trying to be "minstream", that I really need a few BPs to just visit with and have that special connection. Is this where to be?
    slik_kitty replied to tulsatim's response:
    this is where to be. it isn't very busy right now but this is the place to talk with other bp'ers. doesn't have to be about bp. can be about fun stuff too.
