    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.

    This has been a extremely rough week & 1/2. I'm struggling on levels that should send me straight to the locked unit at the local hospital.

    I don't have my usually support here on the board. This board has been a place to vent and be heard and sometimes that would make the difference between injuring and not. It eased the pressure and helped me feel connected and not so alone. It devastating to have the board no longer be on my support team.

    What can we do to undo all the damage that was done here?

    There is a need for message boards for self injurers. With out them the behavior slides back into the hidden/silent realm. That is a strep in the wrong direction.

    Hi moreos~
    I'm sorry you are feeling triggered. I'm fairly new to this board, only been here a little over a year. But I'm here now, to listen, to lean on. If you want. Hope things start looking up soon. ((( safe hugs ))) <~~ if okay
    A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Of course, so does falling down a flight of stairs.

    sadly, taking out the mods really damaged the boards. a few of us are still here, but it just isn't the same any more. i only come on once a day in the mornings, but i still check on here to offer support when i can.
