    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

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    If you could live anywhere you wanted, where would it be and why?
    If I could have one day and have that day be very windy and choose what I wished to be... I'd be a Kite and fly free...

    in the mtns on a large piece of land with no neighbors. i'd start an animal rescue and no animal would be turned away. except maybe spiders. lol
    Caprice_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Fun question!

    I like where I live now because it's close to family but if that weren't an issue, if I could somehow still see my kids and grandkids as often, I'd live on the west coast of Vancouver Island, on a bluff overlooking the wild ocean. The ocean, the old growth forest, and the nearby mountains all serve to feed my soul.

    There's also a place in New South Wales, Australia, that was on this amazing and sunny spit of land out in the ocean, beautiful homes and the ocean. *siiiiiiiiigh*

    Can I have both?

    I like kitty's idea: Up in the mountains away from everyone. But I wouldn't want to do animal rescue - just be left alone.

    up in the mountains far away from everyone in a really nice cabin with running water and heat and or a/c if needed (in the summer our mtns get hot) no hiway noise only nature noise and there would hnave to be a stream that runs righb by my cabin.
    NO TV! playing games with my grown kids and husband. It sounds so wonderful!
