    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.

    With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I wanted to wish you all a great long weekend, however you celebrate (or don't celebrate). I hope it's warm, safe, as busy or as quiet as you want/need it to be and I hope it doesn't cause any additional pain. Take care of yourselves.

    I also wanted to say thanks to all of you for everything you do here, day in and day out, reaching out for help and TO help.

    Thank you.

    P.S. Online or in person, will you be shopping this coming Black Friday?
    You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

    Thank You Caprice. Enjoy your holiday. I will NOT be involved with any type of shopping on "Black Friday." And since I do not celebrate American Holidays I have checked out books from the library, recorded movies I want to watch and I am just simply going to enjoy being present in the moment.

    Hugs,
    Bonnie

    It is going to be a difficult weekend for me. I am going to my brother's house for Thanksgiving, then home on Saturday and Dinner with my father for my birthday on Sunday. I will also attend an AA meeting with my Dad as it is his wife's 35 year of sobriety celebration.
    Too many people, too out there for me. I feel a lot of klonopin coming on.
    Oh yeah, I can't be myself at either location.

    It sounds like you have a wearying weekend ahead of you, Kate. Just a few more days and it will all be behind you again. (((hugs)))
