    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,

    I saw your post on the SH board and just wanted you to know that although no one has written back to you yet, I hear you. I can't imagine how scary this must be for you.

    Don't know what else to say... Just that I hope you can avoid him...

    and you may want to think about carrying some mace/pepper spray with you all the time.

    This just occurred to me, and it may sound totally wacko, you may actually be safer this time around than when you were a child. Many predators who prey on children prefer their victims to be children -- not adults. Because you're grown up now, his interest in you may have waned. I'm not sure how much truth there is to this, but I do think it's got some research backing it up. I just hope there are no more children directly accessible to him.

    Sigh. I'm sorry you're going through this. Sending you strength....

    All I can give you right now is hugs. I know this is a stressful time for you. I hope you get in touch with your local police dept.

    Hang in there
