    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 Everyone,


    I've been lurking lately. I'm not exactly sure why. I just don't feel like I have anything to add to what you guys have already said on most threads.

    I haven't been leaving the house since my release from the hospital last month. If I go to the store or a Doctor's appointment it's a big deal for me. I've been sleeping A LOT (like 15-18 hours/day).

    So tonight I'm super anxious. Even after my klonopin. I've been wondering lately if my whole issue isn't just impulse control. When I've been down this week, I keep looking at the razor or my wrists. I've been able to control it, but tonight, I don't know if I will. I am pretty impulsive & maybe that's what I need to fix. I know that my S attempts were impulsive acts. I know my cutting is impulsive. I know I become more impulsive the more anxious I get.

    I don't know why I'm telling you guys this. I guess I just needed to tell someone what's going on in my head.
