    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.

    sorry you are having such problems posting. i don't know what the problem is, so i thought i would start a post directed to you and see if you can reply to this. i want to welcome you to the board. i hope this works. i know how frustrating it is when there are posting issues.

    contact webmd tech support. maybe they can help you solve the problem.

    Thanks for your post. I did contact webmd technical support, but never heard anything back. I did finally get my story posted tonight, twice mind you, so something must be working right. I find that talking to someone who understands the ups and downs of self-harm or any mental health issue is helpful. At least you know you're not alone and can support one another. I thought I had enough struggles dealing with depression, panic disorder and anxiety for so long and now another new diagnosis. I'm still here and will keep on fighting. I hope you are having a good weekend!
