    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.

    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.

    Nopoin got lost in the computer world, lowdown reamerged,

    My S-I been on a progressive path up until three days ago, I had to change my medicine taking time in the evenings cause I almost caused me to be slapped with a DUI, I been on the same meds same times for over six months, why did the police try this crap now? I had my kids with me. Tonight I had a interest in combining my Depakote er with another drug, IS IT JUST ANOTHER WAY TO SI OR IS IT PART OF MY MANIC EPISODE ? AND SHOULD I HAVE MY GUARD UP OR JUST WAIT TO SEE IF IT PASSES?
    slik_kitty responded:
    anything that causes harm to ourselves that we choose to do is a form of si. it isn't just cutting or scratching, it can take on many forms. don't just wait to see if it passes, get help.

    I think you should seek help right away. I couldn't agree with Kitty more!

    Thanks for letting us know you're back and stuggling. Break out of the mold you're in and fight for yourself. YOUR worth IT!

    I'm glad to be back on, My world was lost without being able to seek advice from people that care and understand what I go through without being judged. they way things are going I need my family here, I'm used to small episode but not the big multi ones I'm having lately. I did talk with my T and I'm fighting this battle the best way I'm able to at the moment. THANKS. sittingbull594 and slik_kitty's

    First, I want to say that I am grateful that you and your children were unharmed and that you did not end up with a DUI.

    I am happy to hear that you are back... and that you are talking with your T. Take things slow... one day at a time...

    Be safe and be well.
