    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.

    My anxiety is through the roof tonight. As usual, there is no determinable reason. My mind is going to bad places. I think I might end up going to bed early. I'm going to download one of those guided imagery meditations that I recommended to lexismom.

    I just hate when it takes over me. I feel so helpless. I have the tools, but they are so hard to use when the desire is so great. I had a good day, no issues, no reason for this. I hate this crap.

    ((hugs)) if ok

    Hope the guided imagery meditation is helping or that you were able to just go to bed and get some good sleep.

    I find that I often have stronger urges after a "good" day than I do after a mediocre or slightly bad day. I know how to deal with "blah" or "bad" but my brain is just not used to "good" so it tries to throw something familiar at me...even if it's not healthy.

    Know you are not alone in this.

    Fran -
    I know what your talking about trying to set a good example for the board, but you don't have to, any more than I do. We are on this board for ourselves, for our issues. When we are able, we can support others, but the main reason we are here is for ourselves.

    We both have issues that cause us to SH. When those issues become too much, we need to talk about them. That's what the board is here for. Please keep fighting Fran, I have truly loved getting to know you and don't want to loose you.
