    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 and Why to Report a Post

    I need to yell and cut. I can't, I'll disappoint the closest person to me. UGE I HATE PEOPLE. I've been emotionally all over the place today. My mom and I just got into a fight and she doesn't know how to stop pushing my buttons!! I know being bipolar doesn't give me any kind of excuse but GOD DON'T MAKE ME WORSE THAN I AM. At this point it's more than just an urge or craving to cut, it's a need. I need to bleed...

    I can feel myself practically pulling my hair out... Why does my hero care so much if I cut or not? UGE I WANNA GO DIE!

    SORRY S. I'm glad your hero cares that much for you that says alot about him. You probably don't want to hear this but can you take a walk or listen to some music or dance to the beat of something really hard or take a cold shower.
    Distract yourself.

    Just want to bring to your attention anytime we mention about the act of sh we need to put TRIGGER on the subject line so it keeps others if they're vunerable and don't want to read trigger posts safe. ok. thanks. bb
    One day at a time
    MandyCake responded:
    Please do not sh.... Talk with your Hero about what you are feeling. Or do as BB said... Scream, break a dish, throw pillows, and if you still feel horrid, call crisis or go to the ER...

    Be Safe.
    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...

    In Harmony,

    After writing the post last night I took some sleep meds and I passed out within minutes without hurting myself or others. Today was better in some ways after a good night's sleep. After yelling a bit, I felt a bit better thank for the tip! I'll remember to write TRIGGER next time, sorry!!
    MandyCake replied to Sammurai711's response:
    I am so pleased to hear that you are feeling better Samm and that you managed not to sh... You even got a good nights sleep and tried a new coping skill. That is awesome.

    Way to go!

    pst... whispering in your ear.... sometimes I forget to write trigger...

    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...
