    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've been reading and it sounds like maybe you've lost a bunch of helpers here? Can I come in and be in your sandbox?? I play nice!!

    I'm someone who has done self injury for most o f my life since i was 10.
    it got worse as i grew older.

    I don't seem to be able to fit anywhere. I'd like to fit somewhere! I don't know if this is the right place or not.

    I don't know what else to say?? sometimes i am standoffish but i try to be friendly because i like people even if they hurt you sometimes.

    i guess what it boils down to is that i try not to do the behaviors that land me in the hospital and someines i don't succeed.

    thank you for listening.

    Hi Sittingbull,

    Welcome to the board. Yes, there have been some recent changes here, and there are some fragile souls being cared for right now, but we still welcome new people to the board and those who are able will gladly toss their two cents worth in.

    We look forward to learning more about you and whatever you'd like to share with us.

    Snowy
