    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.

    Apparently, one of the other boards I post on is in such an uproar -- multiple people in crisis, people giving advice they themselves don't take, everybody angry at everyone, everyone's attacking each other or stomping away and swearing that they're never going to post there again.

    Ironically, it's behavior that I would associate with this board. However, I've never seen anyone say "oh, well, I'm so offended that I've offended everyone else so I'm going to go away and eat worms and die" here. Apparently I missed something pivotal on that board -- that someone said something to someone -- and now everyone's swearing this that and the other thing.

    Thank you, whoever is out there, for NOT doing that here. The other board has been such a volatile area for the last several weeks that I'm really afraid to post there. I think I'm going to stay away from there and lay low for a while, even though I do need the support. I'll be on the other (the SA) board and I'll be lurking on the one I mentioned earlier.

    I just shake my head and say "holy cow... what happened? What did I miss?"
