    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.

    Welcome here. You've found a wonderful place of understanding and support. When you're ready to share more about how you're feeling and what's going on in your life, we'll be here.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    hi, for some reason i was unable to read your entire post. all i could read was the 16 or so words immediately follwing the red "trigger" below your screenname.

    i am not sure we have met yet, but i want you to know that my heart goes out to you fully and completely. i felt so bad when i read your line about not having friends. well, if "friends" are people you can connect with, if "friends" are people who can rejoice with you during good times and sympathize and empathize with you during difficult times, i think you will find many members of this community friends indeed. please continue to share your thoughts and feelings on these boards in this community.

    i am sending super hugs your way tonight from southern ca.

    please know that you are NOT alone. we are here for you.

    no, you're not crazy, just lonely. welcome to the board. you will find lots of friends here who understand.
    Kate_Te replied to slik_kitty's response:
    I don't think you are weird or crazy. You are like a lot of us here, lonely and probably scared. Welcome to the board. If you let us, we can become a good sounding board for you. As a side effect, you can gain a bunch of cyber friends who understand your issues.

    Again, welcome.
