    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
    Attic chairs - bed time story
    I wrote this post years ago for member Sammie. I finally got in on my blog and wanted to re-share it here. The story is still strong and the message still relevant today.

    It does mentioned scars but its not graffic.

    hope all sleep well tonight.
    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.

    Your writing was Beautiful, Heartwrenching, moving and insitefull.

    My chair, me, was destroyed by fire, drowned by water, blown apart by the wind and buried in an unmarked area, in an unmarked grave... I fear there is nothing left to be salvaged.

    Life is the school and Love is the Lesson.

    there is always the core, deep inside of us, that is who we truely are. it is often buried deep under all the pain of our past, but it is still there. once we can get rid of what is covering our core, we can rebuild it. we can become who we were truely meant to be. it can take a long time to get there, but in the journey we know that deep inside of us is what we are looking for.
