    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.

    I know everyone is struggling. I'm real sad about that but i do know that we have to push ourselves to do the work to feel better as best we can. I realize that we have to do what we can. that is all nothing more nothing less.

    Do not feel bad because you are not doing well. It is our illness that makes us like that!!!!!!!!!!! and pooey on anyone who poo poo's that!~

    Bon, Dem, Otw, Ste, SK,Kate, Kate te, CJ, Kitty, Caprice whereever you are??, I noticed when i opened my page to this post that Caprices profile popped up so maybe there is some hope?

    Dont' give up because then you give in. We don't necessarily have to be laughing and being carefree but we can make the best outta really really really really BAD situations. Because we don't have to give in and quit because that is what others want from us or our head wants us to do............ You me us don't have to decide we will give in and give up. We will SURVIVE AND GO ON IF WE ALLOW IT.

    I don't know what to say else. I know when i'm in a bad spot its so dang hard. I'm praying for all of you. Be you and be the best you can be to yourself ok!

    bb, sometimes surviving is all we can do, but there does come a time when we are no longer just surviving. we just have to keep fighting and keep working to feel better. it's there, you just have to keep moving forward to get there, and you have taken some big strides. you are on your way. hugs
