    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.

    TRIGGER I suppose. My boyfriend, or "hero" as I usually refer to him has been having a crummy day, I know I'm not supposed to feel bad just because he does, but he's the one person who stopped me from aa suicide attempt earlier this year -hense "hero"- and he's now been having suicidal thoughts. He has assured me he won't act on anything but how am I not supposed to be depressed when the person keeping me alive doesn't want be any longer?

    The best advice you can give your boyfriend/hero is to get a therapist himself. You know from your own experience that once you start thinking about it, it's hard to stop without help.

    He's been like this in the past, not often when when he os, it worries me. He usually doesn't even talk to me when he's like this. I tried convinsing his to talk to someone, anyone really, like his dad but he wants to be left alone so I'm stuck here to worry... I hope he's okay
