    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

I just dont want to hurt anymore emotionally or physically.It is not going away as much as i fight.Who the heck just wants to exist .That is no life.Sorry for being such a downer.

    [TRIGGER] (((hugs))) Hearing your pain and desperation.

    I understand the feeling that no one cares. Sometimes I get in that spot too - for me it's like "If anyone really cared, they'd rescue me from all the bad things. If they cared, they'd protect me from feelings, thoughts, stresses, bad news, the past and the future."

    I can't rescue you... but I hope it sounds caring to you that I wish I could rescue you.

    its hard i know cuz i've been struggling too. i wish someone would come down from heaven and rescue me too sometimes. i'll volunteer too to rescue you because i do care. however, we both know thats not rational.

    live only in the moment................nothing else not tomorrow or the next hour or minute the moment.
