    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

    Do you have Borderline Personality Disorder? This new Exchange has been developed so we can encourage each other, share tips to get through those down days, and/or just vent.

    hi. i will look into your group on project experience. since i probably won't be able to access much on my phone, i'll have to wait til i can either go to my parents' or the library to really do anything. i will see K on wednesday so i will talk to her about all this, too.

    oh, yeah, and i'm glad, too, that you resisted temptation and made other plans for this weekend. so what are they? doing anything interesting? i just get to work this weekend (waaahh!!) but at least my supervisor gave me an easy day and i'm getting 4 extra hours tonite. then i gotta work sunday and monday! anyway, mood-wise, i'm really blah for the second day in a row. don't know why, just am. if i let my mind go, all kinds of crazy thoughts rush in, so i'm trying to keep myself busy....kinda hard at this boring job.

    anyway, talk to you later. ~joy

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.

    the group is called "i have borderline personality disorder". in fact if you type that in google, the second result will bring u straight 2 the group. Like marry said it's kind of messy, 2 many people and 2 many posts, but u can send private messages which is an advantage. I met a few interesting people there maybe I should try 2 get them 2 come here and straighten our little group. Bout my weekend plans, I wanted to study for a test and get some work done but I spent most of my time just watching T.V.( the funny thing is that every time I decided not to drink, even though I know it was the healthy decision I regret not drinking) joy sorry that you're in a bad mode"026I am not a happy trooper either.. I have a pretty big problem at work which I have no idea how to solve. I have this wedding I have 2 go 2 tom night and don't have anyone 2 go with. Round a month and a half ago I was at a wedding, went alone and felt so miserable watching everyone with their dates/wifes/girlfriends ..so I got very drunk and left in the middle (this time I decided not to rent a car, now that I understand that all the drinking and driving I did in the past few years was not me being cool, but rather attempts to kill myself) I know it sounds stupid but it's just too much, I wish I didn't give a"026 bout what other people thought about me..Wish I could go 2 sleep and wake up a few years from now happy and healthy"026joy I have a list of websites and reading mitral bout bpd and dbt I will check which ones are accessible via mobile..hope u both have a peaceful Sunday

    storm, i totally understand about the wedding situation. it doesn't sound stupid to me because i have the same issues. it's hard for me even at walmart or the grocery to see couples or moms with kids or whole families. it hurts too much because even though those folks don't know what my life is like, i do, and i know that i'm all alone and it kills me to see others who have someone.

    one thing i forgot to ask...what's your screen name on EP? i found your group, but don't know how to find you other than sending you a private message.

    i'm having another blah day...the weather's matching my mood today too. yay.
