    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.

    How and Why to Report a Post
    I have a problem other than cutting
    An_255965 posted:
    One of my friends is threatening to stop being my friend unless I stop cutting. I know she means well, but I don't know how to explain to her my situation without making things worse. Any ideas?

    check out the internet on sh. find something she can read that will help explain things to her.

    Hi An-

    Are you currently trying other ways to handle things besides sh-ing? Such as therapy or keeping a journal. Maybe sharing your efforts will help her understand too.

    Slik has a good idea too. Find articles you can relate to and share them with her. I've also found writing an open letter to help organize my thoughts. Then you can give or share it with her. Explain how important the friendship is but this is personal struggle and you need support.

    I hope your friend is willing to listen. Stay strong!
    with love and fulljoy
