    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,

    ok, i went thru a bunch of the old posts where people talked about DBT, but none of them talked about what it really is or consists of. my therapist, K, told me a lil about it on Wednesday, and we talked about "mindfulness". i know i can go online to other websites to find out more, but i can't do that at work cuz i can only access webmd (crazy huh?). can anyone give me some websites to check out? i'll see if i can access them from my phone then maybe go to the library sometime. anyway, just wondering...

    btw...today's been blah...don't know why. it's almost as if i get worse when the weekend comes becuz i know i wouldn't be able to get hold of K if i needed her and i'm so totally alone i don't have anyone to talk to or call if i needed to. *shrugs* such is my life.

    This is an excellent website about DBT. There's a ton information about the skills, the reason for learning them, and diary cards.

    You'll probably need to spend a fair amount of time there. The website is packed with information.
