    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.

    SO READING INTO THINGS:

    YOU THINK SOMETHIING OTHER THAN WHAT IT REALLY IS AND THEN YOU MIGHT BLOW IT OUT OF CONTEXT AND GET INTO HEATED DISCUSSION ABOUT THE ISSUES WHEN ITS NOT ANYTHING TO DO SUCH BEHAVIOR OVER. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

    FOR INSTANCE: I LOVE THE MUSICAL ARTIST DAVID GRAY
    BUT MAYBE YOU DON'T AND YOU SAY HE'S NOT GOOD AT ALL
    AND I SAY I LIKE HIM AND THINK HE SOUNDS GOOD AND HE IS VALUABLE FOR TODAYS GENRE AND YOU STILL SAY NO HE'S NO GOOD AT ALL. ITS BLACK AND WHITE. THERE IS NO GIVE AND TAKE. IF YOU JUST MAKE BLANKET STATEMENTS THAT SEEM LIKE FACTS THAT THIS IS THE WAY IT IS AND THATS THE ONLY WAY IT CAN BE WELL THEN THAT IS SQUEWED THINKING. IT CAN BE ALL KINDS OF WAYS FOR ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE. ITS NOT A MATTER OF RIGHT OR WRONG IT JUST IS.

    ANY OF THIS MAKE SENSE? CENTS? LOL.........

    Thank you BB... I now get it... So this is what my T means when she says I'm rigid in my thinking.. I need to see things from other perspectives, not just my own...

    Interesting...
    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...

    yes the world has many opinions and some we don't agree with and that's ok. however, listening to someone else and validating them like i did with you makes people feel at ease and makes them feel better about themselves.
    theres not always THIS IS THE WAY I T IS life situations only if you make it that way in your head. In order to get thru life we must bend like a tree in the wind and ya know what happens to the tree that couldn't bend well he gets broken limbs. same with humans.
    Remember we are all unique and come from different backgrounds so we all think something different too.

    I think i can i think i can i thnk i can..

    that's great bonnie..........i'm glad it makes sense. certainly we have our core values. meaning those things that we believe like you shouldn't kill someone unless its in self defense, you shouldn't lie intentionally, you shouldn't steal, stuff like that that are non negotiables. its not meant to strip you of your belief system only to help you deal with yourself and others better. to bend and give and get without hurting yourself or others.

    i've been very fortunate to have strong communication skills throughout my life and i don't know why cuz my parents sure as hell didn't teach that to me. somehow i've picked it up but sometimes i get really upset and bite someone figurateively speaking.

    well thats all i got.............just remember to put the shoe on the other foot
