    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.

    just got back from a weekend with my family. Did pretty well when I was there but got home and went right back to the SI. Soooo frustrated. It's like I'm starting all over....

    it's easier when you have people to call you to task to not si. at home there is no one to stop you so it's harder. you need to find something to focus on at home that will take your mind off the si.

    these are small battles of a larger war. you might have "lost" this one, but you recognized your mistep and can focus now on "winning" the next challenges you may face.


    think through what led you to SH. what were you feeling? was there something specific that caused you to feel overwhelmed? pin point it and write it down/talk it out/etc and next time you will be better prepared to channel that energy into a healthier alternative.

    i know it's hard, but even sharing here took courage! stay strong and foused on your what keeps you centered.
    with love and fulljoy
