    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!

    hey, I am new to the site but old to bpd I have not found any drug that will help with bpd but I am treated with geodon and cymbalta for bi polar and I'm on campral for alcoholism that helps with impulse control but I still fly into a rage over small stuff.
    I'm finding that the whole over thinking and the catastrophising cannot be helped with meds. I am now trying to get help with that but people have a hard time understanding the agony that comes along with it.
    I am reaching out to people and trying to explain that I don't know what it feels like to be comforted so when I try to self sooth I don't know what feeling I am supposed to have. none of this is easy but I'm still trying.
