    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,

    In Crisis on the Weekend?

    Caprice_WebMD_Staff posted:
    A message board such as this one is not 'live' in real time, so there may be delays in others reading or responding. This is especially true on the weekends. If you are in crisis and need help keeping yourself safe — whether on a weekend or during the week — please be sure to contact a crisis line , call 911, or your doctor or therapist. While you can find wonderful support here, it may not be immediate, nor can it always be the intervention you need.

    To all of our members, our weekend coverage is not as regular as it is during the week. If you see a crisis post which needs our attention — either by adding a 'trigger' warning or needing crisis intervention — please don't hesitate to use the Report This option beneath the post, choose 'Other' from the menu and explain why you feel our attention is needed.

    That report goes to our weekend moderator who will look in as soon as possible.

    Thank you,

    The WebMD Community Management

    I was bulimic throughout high school and as a young adult. I am now 36 and having the same thoughts coming back after so long. I just went to a conference where a doctor referred to eating disorders as "curable" and is not similar to substance addition where one is not in recovery but "cured." I don't believe this label and do not believe I will ever be "cured." I think I am in recovery and can manage my addiction, but a cure seems absurd. What are others thoughts?

    Hi Bigadult,

    What a good topic for discussion! I encourage you to start a new discussion on the board with this so others can easily find it and join in.

    To do that, hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you want) and Submit.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
