    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.

    Dem-

    Did your therapist suggest any coping mechanisms for you to use instead of hurting yourself? Stuff like distraction, self-soothing, radical acceptance or anything? If not, please try some. If you aren't familiar with them, they are on the dbt self hep website (on right, under Helpful Resources).

    You need to find a positive coping mechanism that works for you!

    Why did they ban you? Maybe instead of a plasma center you could donate to a blood bank or directly to a hospital. It is an admirable thing to do since it definitely saves lives. I'm sorry you are hurting so much, I understand. (((Dem)))

    Sorry you have these feelings towards yourself. I hope some of the suggested coping mechanisms help. You are a wonderful person for donating! Were you only banned from that facility? I donate blood myself, usual at varying locations. Stay strong, (Hugs)
