    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

    Sorry to hear that. Understand needing to distance yourself a little bit sometimes.

    Hoping to catch up with the board after work today.

    I'm in a delicate enough place that I need to protect myself by staying away from triggering things. It's nothing but triggering things on the SH board right now and I can't deal with that right now. I need to stay stable.

    Part of me feels guilty for not sticking around and helping the others, but...

    sometimes the best things you can do for others is to help yourself, right?

    I guess?

    Don't feel guilty. You are right. I think that is part of the reason it gets very quiet here. Everyone is just taking care of themselves, and when the boards become triggery, it's very reasonable to back away for a bit. ((hugs))

    Hey LLT,

    I understand how you feel. Take all the time you need, and you're right, sometimes the best thing you can do is take care of yourself. (((hugs if okay)))
