    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
    SI or food?

    I seem to be burning the candle at both ends..... Along with the SI, I have disordered eating. At this point in my life I am struggling with both. And expressed my exasperation at both issues the other day while seeing my therapist. In the end, we made a pact to help me moderate my food intake. Not too much and not too little. Right! As a result of all the pressure of working on the food issue, my SI has not decreased at all. My therapist thought if I focused on the eating, I would be too busy to SI. Wrong! I crazy to be thinking that such intense focus on one would make the other worse?

    sounds like changing the pattern isn't working. you need to deal with the issues that make you si and eat badly. if you take one away, the other urge will get stronger. until you deal with the issues behind it, the self harming will continue.
