    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.

    How many have been asked by their T or psych when the come to get you in the waiting room, How are you? First, if you were "fine" you would not be there and second, Why would you answer this in the waiting room or hallways? (Do they know how silly this is?)
    If I could have one day and have that day be very windy and choose what I wished to be... I'd be a Kite and fly free...

    That's still better than the mental health workers asking how you are when you are inpatient. My standard response was "I'M IN A PSYCH HOSPITAL, HOW DO YOU THINK I AM?"

    Yes, it is wierd to me to hear them ask me how I am doing. The better question would be "what are you feeling right now?" or something of that nature. Questions that would get you to talk about your thoughts and feelings.
