    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.

    I am new here and I am new to reaching out to others. I have lived as such a recluse for so long that even going online like this is hard.

    I am also disabled with a host of physical issues....fibromyalgia and arthritis to name a few.

    I have heard that people with BPD have a high rate of these types of physical diseases and I am not surprised as anxiety can produce stress which then manifests itself through our bodies.

    Anyway, I wanted to say Hi....

    One other piece that I would like to share is that I have been accepted into the DBT program here after a stint in the hospital this summer so I am looking forward to gaining skills to help me have a better quality of life and maybe help me physically feel more like doing this rather than sitting in my apartment wondering how I managed to get to this point in my life.

    Greetings all

    Hello and welcome to both of you. I pop in every so often, depending on how I am feeling.

    Great news that you have been accepted onto the DBT programme locally - it is amazing! I didn't realise how much of a difference it would make.

    Hope you are keeping well
