    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.

    hi, lovely,

    i noticed your post was short, but not exactly sweet. i felt sad myself to see that you were down. would you like to share what has caused you to feel empty? can you recognize if it was anything specific? i hope those negative feelings you are experiencing turn around real soon.

    hi lovely
    i'm glad tho that at least you could write something ........it's good to know that you're having these feelings. As Marsha Linehan would say just sit with it... and then I add Sweetie.... nothing lasts forever... and remember as well they can't take your mind! it only happened to the body not the mind only if it manifests inside push it away.......you don't need to relive it.

    I know anniversaries are so hard.... take peace and your power back because you survived it! and now you're living your life

    LLT, I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. I struggle with feeling the same way pretty often. I know that the Bible says that God's love is the only thing that can fill our emptiness. He loved you so much that he sent his only Son to die for you. You are perfect in His eyes. I know these things and yet like you I struggle day after day. I'm going to bed but I will pray God's love will fill and comfort us both. (((Hugs my friend))))

    hi off the wall,

    so nice to see a fellow sister-in-christ on this board ! i was so happy to see your encouragement of Jesus to LLT earlier this evening. i am lifting both of you up in prayer this evening.

    may God continue to bless your life,

    SoCal
