    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.

    Wrap: Wellness Recovery Action Plan.

    It is a personalized plan that puts you in the driver seat. You develop it. It's about peers helping peers...

    The good part of this is there are NO LABELS! You are not a diagnosis, you are a person whose trauma, feelings, etc have created "Normal" responses to help you survive.

    I particularly like the part about creating your own crisis plan, advanced directive that tells doctors, psych, t's, peer's, family, etc what you need and how they can help. You are in charge and they all agree to follow your plan when you feel everything slipping and falling apart.

    Great read Folks!!!
