    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

    My fantasy - my hope

    Person #1: I didn't realize/I forgot/I see now that...I shouldn't have mentioned someone from another board, and I am very sorry I did that. I will be more careful in the future. Is there anything else I can do to help make things right? (Maybe get that post deleted, if it hasn't been already?)

    Person #2: You know, I felt very strongly about that, but I apologize, too. I apologize for pointing out the error so harshly and for the "mud-slinging."

    Person #1: Thank you. You know, I did some "mud-slinging," too, and even though I was upset, I shouldn't have responded the same way, and I apologize for that, too.

    Person #2: I can respect that response. I don't think we will be friends again any time soon, but I will try harder to respond more respectfully on the board when something upsets me. I grew up having to "come up swinging" so many times just to survive that it's second nature to me now. I will try to be more aware of that.

    Person #1: We both had terrible childhoods, didn't we? No one acknowledged my pain and terror when I was growing up, and now I feel like no matter what I do I'm wrong and a terrible person and if I don't point out my pain I will still be invisible to everyone.

    Person #2: Oh, that makes sense. It still bugs me about you, but it makes sense. I appreciate your sharing.

    Person #1: I'm not sure I can help person #3 feel any better, but I do apologize for not thinking and posting about her on another board. I should have voiced my concerns on this board.

    Person #2: That is really hurting her, too. I hope she will see this and know that you realize the error and will be more careful and that she will feel safe enough to come back.

    Person #1: Me, too.

    The end...I realize that doesn't address everything, but that's what I wanted to share.

    I also realize I may get blasted for this...I hope not. I hope it is read knowing that I only posted this in the hopes of helping...

    I love this as it shows how conflict can become resolved. I know when I'm riding the emotional storm that sometime's I need help to come down. Thank you for this...
