    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,

    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.

    there is also the whole thing of people leaving you, being abandoned etc. You open your heart to your t then they leave - its not going to be good. Of course it is hard. You don't know who else to turn to cause everyone abandons you in the end and that just causes more and more pain so you may as well just stay away from everyone, that way it can't happen again. Thing is you also worry that the people you know will also stop being your friends/caring about you etc. it was strange seeing this

    I understand this, have been staying away from everyone, just trying to deal with the pain lately. I feel its better to keep my distances from people and my t, I dont know what else to do, I have tried so many times but the end result is always they leave, I cant take anymore. Its easier for me to accept the fact that there something wrong with me that they leave.

    Im sorry this post just trigger me a little, it something I could have written. Im ok.

    It's not that something is wrong with you. Something is wrong with them. If they can't see past the illness and see that you are a good person, then that is their problem. Nothing is wrong with you. If you feel you must stay away, that is fine because it is your choice. But you don't have to stay away from here. Having an outlet is what this board is for.

    I hear you. I feel the same. I isolate. It's not only a matter of people abandoning me... It is also the fact they would go out of their way to be certain to "leave" me places, get rid of me and let me know how unwanted and horrible I was and am...
