    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
    My beloved friend. Come site with me for a moment.

    .*wraps you up in a fuzzy blanket and hold you tight*

    I know you are stinging from my words. Please dear one, don't turn away from this board. You are very important and wanted here. Nothing will change that. Please don't get miffed and leave us.

    You were crying for help earlier and none of us here are capable or qualified to help. All we can offer you is a listening ear and acceptance of who you are.

    I am so sorry the nurses didn't help ease your pain. You deserve to treated with compassion and dignity. Someone should have taken the time to fluff your pillow and get a warm blanket from the dryer and tuck you in. Some one should have warmed a wash cloth and washed your face while chit chatting with you. They should have brushed your hair and tucked it behind you ears and kissed your forehead.

    Someone should have offered to sit with you and gently rub your aching joints to ease the pain. Some one should have sat with you and just held your hand and let you know that you are not alone.

    I would have if I was there. Not because you were a patient, but because beyond that you are a human who is hurting, and deserve to be treated as such.

    BB, I hope what I said didn't make things even worse for you. I'm so sorry! I just want to see you get the help you need and deserve. I hate seeing you suffering so much and I feel helpless to be able to do anything. I hope you are okay and are resting tonight. ((((Gentle hugs))))

    You: what are they trying to do to me?

    Keep you from killing yourself.

    Do you expect them to give you more pills on the heels of to suicide attempts? I don't think so. You are clearly telling them you are not able to take your meds as prescribed, legally they have no choice but to remove them to protect themselves.
