    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,

    She emailed me a few days ago. I dont think she would mind me telling you guys, or I hope she doesnt mind. She is doing much better. Im so relieved because I was very worried too.

    Hey! Aww sorry to worry you guys!! I began to feel much better like...a little over a week ago or something? I just haven't been on the board much because since December I feel my life has revolved around my disorder. And I am trying to re-gain my self-identity, to seperate myself from the disorder. I just started the process of enrolling at the university for a bachelor of fine arts in communication design (graphic design/web design, etc) . I now feel like I have something going for me, something else to think about. I am not abandoning the board, just not frequenting it quite as often. But I probably will be on a whole lot more when I feel I have more going for me

    Hi Maddie:

    I'm happy to hear that you are doing so well now, I was worried about you for a while, but I very glad that the meds are working now.

    Good luck,

Congratulations on enrolling in school and moving forward and onwards!! excellent news..... live life hon!

    enjoy your new world!

    Snowy (who is also not on as much now either.. busy with life too...)

    Thanks everyone!!! You know what? I can't even make myself stay away from this board for more than several days you all are so lovely! Now that I do have more to think about I don't mind thinking about bp

    I'm so glad I've pushed myself to be proactive with my life!!
