    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
    so sad

    our board is falling apart from the lack of moderators because webmd decided that money was a better bottom line than the customers who actually use their product. i am crying because my friends are leaving. i've been here for many years cuz this was a safe haven to come. i had hoped we could all be strong and hold this together, but it isn't happening. sorry to see all my friends leaving. i'll probably hang around till the bitter end, cuz my psyche can't stand starting new, with new friends who will all go away in the end anyway. i will miss everyone who has left or is leaving. hugs to all

    (gentle hugs) my heart goes out to you and those who feel it best to leave. I'll be sticking around, it was hard enough to get myself to join this lovely group and i havent been around much or very long, but it is always such a relief to come here and be honest with myself and the group. after such a long absence and coming back to the group in such disarray- it is so sad. it wont be the same without all of you...

    Agreed. I'm sad that this has cost us our friends and our community. But we can survive. How, I'm not sure. But we can.

    I think that if we stand strong together that we can make this work. what's made this board special, isn't webmd, but the people who come to this board who have become our friends.
