    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.

    hey guys.

    How are you all?

    I know it has been a while. I have been very busy and trying to carry on with life. I have started a new job at the uni - I now get paid for doing stuff there

    I have an assignment due in soon for my teaching qualification and have work to get ready for an exhibition.

    I finished my DBT sessions a few weeks ago and although I am managing to get by I can feel things slipping. I just found myself scrolling through the site looking for 'tigger' posts. It is almost like I want to trigger myself. have been thinking about doing stuff but I know I also don't want to screw up everything I have been working for.

    good for you! Keep working with the dbt stuff it does help. if you can remember it now that you are young then you will be able to continue on later in years to come. congrats on your job and for working so hard to come about

    Hey - I was totally thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were doing!

    Congrats on the new job and best of luck with the exhibition and what not.

    I understand what you mean looking for the triggering posts... It's almost like you wanna dare yourself to see if you are any better.
    Stay strong. The fact that you are stopping yourself before going forth with the ideas is a BIG accomplishment.

    Keep in touch and if you can show us any pictures of your most recent art - that would be fab. I remember a long while ago you showing me some of your work and it was beautiful!
