    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.

    think that is enough

    feeling so low. trying so hard to keep it together. can't face going into college or doing any of the work I should be doing. Can't stop thinking about hurting myself. all torn up inside. so much hate inside, need to get it out of me and the only way I know is to hurt. I want to slice the pain out. nothing is worth it, so tired of trying and getting it wrong. going back to sh'ing will keep it all under control and I will be able to feel again.

    I am sorry I haven't been around much. I guess I am kinda hiding away from stuff atm, not that it is helping. I haven't wanted to bother people with things, have been trying to deal with things on my own but maybe that isn't the best way. I have forgotten how to tell people things and I also feel cause I haven't posted for a while I don't deserve to post in all the time i never heard her sound like this. she posted thus a few days
    dem24 replied to dem24's response:
    the last part of the last post was not done right, so i thought it would be confusing, she had posted it a few days on the other board, the last part of her post was that she felt that she did not deserve to post because she had bot posted for a whole
