    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.
    This is an amazing group!

    Hi!

    I'm Lauren, and although recently diagnosed with Borderline Personality, I have suspected I had it for a long time.


    It is amazing there is a group like this. I honestly had no idea, and joined WebMD today for weight loss, then stumbled upon this discussion group.


    A lot of days are hard for me. Luckily, I am in what I call a "good space" today.


    How do you cope when you're not in a good space? I have a hard time coping.

    My therapist taught me the DBT skills. They are absolutely incredible when I have a bad day. You'll find they are skills you probably already use.


    I'm glad you found this community. There are few of us and sometimes no one will post for days/weeks. I try to check in every day.
