    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 don't get on here enough. Sometimes I feel ok, but sometimes I just don't have time. (Which is probably good for me, busy is good.) This is one place where I feel safe and never judged. I don't know any of you but when I read and write in here I feel as though I am among friends. Everyone is here for their own reasons, but when you take time out to share positive thoughts with others you are making a difference.

    It's good to 'see' you again, Deidhoff.
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    I agree with you all! This is the first time I have actually felt I "belonged" somewhere and was understood.

    Love you all bunches.
