    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,

    Surviving Trauma and Writing to Heal

    Hi All,

    I made this YouTube video called "2 Minute Memoir" in order to briefly share my story as well as help others in the process. I hope you find healing and support in it, you are not alone in your struggle, and I know now in my heart that there is light after the dark.

    Best Wishes, Joanna

    Thank you so much everyone for the supportive feedback! I appreciate that my video is helping others, while helping me in the process. I will continue posting videos to and you can check in and subscribe to my channel for updates. I will definitely post new videos to this WebMD community as I continually make them.

    Thanks again, and stay strong!

    welcome to the board, glad you found us.

    Going public with these issues can be triggering. Can make you feel exposed/vulnerable right along side the empowering feelings you are having. I hope you are taking extra care of yourself as you make this transition from the silent unseen to the IMINYOURFACE!

    Loved the writing you have done.

    peace be the journey

    I'm not really a psychopath, I just play one on the internet.
    JoannaSingsForYou replied to DOGDANCING_TCOS's response:
    Thank you for the tip. It is difficult to talk about but it absolutely makes me feel better and stronger because I am ready to do so. Please of course disregard my posts here if you are particularly triggered. However, I am posting a cool new video to my YouTube channel today, and I will post it to this discussion for those who do wish to watch and feel better with my music.

    It will be found here as well, later today, and you can subscribe to my channel to get updates more quickly if you would like and feel comfortable doing so:

    Best, Joanna

    Hi all,

    I posted my new video to YouTube, as well as here in the WebMD community as a new discussion. It is called "2 Minute Music Lesson." I hope you enjoy watching it, and I wish you all the serenity in life that you deserve!

    Keep up your hope
