    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.

    How and Why to Report a Post
    I hope this worked.

    This is what I did last weekend, I have always wanted to do, so I went for it. It was awesome. I did by myself, my daughter watched, she wont do it, plus she is not old enough.

    Thanks OTW, the instructions to post pictures helped.

    AMAZING KATE! I hope it gave you the rush you wanted the trhill you totally are!~

    I'm with otw.... I'm not terrified anymore of flying but I definetely am not a decent flyer. I kinda suck actually. I hope wen we go on our short grandma & grandpa venture I don't flip.

    Wonderful! I dream of being a kyte and flying free. How was it for you? What did you feel? What did your body feel?

    I've always wanted to do this and hand gliding.

    Thank you for sharing.



    Life is the school, Love is the lesson.

    I wont say Im hooked but I would do it again.
    lostkate replied to off_the_wall's response:
    I was brave up until they open the door, then I realized Im jumping out of plane, then I got scared.
    lostkate replied to sittingbull594's response:
    Thank you, it was a rush, almost forgot to breathe.
    lostkate replied to mandybutterflykiss's response:
    It felt great, like a kyte, flying free. For a few moments my head was clear and I let everything go. I felt the pressure from falling, stretch out my arms after a few minutes and I was flying. Once the parachute opened I was gliding. It was quiet and can see all of Long Island. It was beautiful. I would love to do hang gliding, maybe that will be my next adventure.
