    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.

    It is hard to believe I haven't posted since September of 2008. Even more surprising I have not done any SH since then even though I wanted to off and on.
    I have a question for anyone who is using the board now. I recently found out one of my friends cuts too. I let her know I have been through dealing with SH for a while and offered her my support.
    The part I am baffled by is that she told me she cuts because it gives her a high. I don't understand because I have always SHed to feel normal. Do any of you get a high from it? She has a therapist and takes meds so at least I know I am not her only support with this.

    Thanks. I can really use the encouragement some days it is still hard to not revert into the old behaviors.

    It is good to 'see' a familiar face.
