    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 finally started writing again.

    It needs work, not even close to professional, but then I am not a writer.
    Began as a seed
    in need of love.

    reach for the warm sun
    and water needed.


    Pushed through the soil
    tender green.


    Slender and tender
    the first of days.


    began to bud
    still in need of love.


    grew tall and green
    tender stalk in the meadow.


    came the winds of turmoil
    battered to and fro


    desolation by the winds
    of time


    slender and tender
    without the love to grow


    the seasons progressed
    the days drawing short.


    no longer tender and green
    but strong in belief


    Spreading new tender seeds
    feeding them the love they need.


    still waiting for the love needed


    the fall comes slowly
    turning from green to yellow


    feel the strength failing as
    green turns to gold.


    hollow and frail
    tasting the bitter reaper.


    Waiting for the love needed to grow.

    Chez1, not to worry - we are getting our first blast of winter this weekend. My part of the country is fairly windy as well, modest gusts 25-40 mph range. I'll be traveling this weekend and out of town for the next two weeks. Working but beats staring at the walls.

    BEAUTIFUL!

    Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Working does beat staring at the walls

    Chez, snow and cold is so hard for me to imagine now that I've been in Southern California for 20 years. My 7 and 4 year old have never experienced snow and we're considering driving up to the mountains this year. However, I will have to find some "cold-appropriate" clothes. The heaviest coats we have are sweat-shirt material hoodies!
