    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 dont have a computer at home and for w/e reason I cannot get my text field on my phone to open up in the reply box. So I can read but cannot comment. i am a little worried about this and hope I will not have an episode. I have a rugby game saturday (good chance it will be raining...) so i hope to get it out then. (trigger) the scabs are healing and itchy, a constant reminder and almost an invitation to reopen/start anew. it is hard to keep these demons at bay- and i am trying to stay focused. I hope we all can enjoy atleast some, if not all, of our weekend! -one love-

    rugger..................why not try instead to let them open up use aquafor or vaseline on them and bandage them. keep them moist so this doesn't happen. i know its hard i struggle with the same thing. I'm thinkin you must burn like i have. i say i have because its almost a month now since i've done it. still healing.
    and i became allergic to aquafor which works really well and i'm just so sick and tired of this garbage of sh heal sh heal sh sh sh. So i'm doing a 12 step program around it. so far so good

    Hi Rugger,

    It sounds like you have an android phone - I do too and can't post here with it. Hopefully that will be remedied one day.

    I hope you got through the weekend okay.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
