    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 about????

    writing a poem??

    What would you write about??

    Draw a picture even if it's a stick figure picture??

    Color?? or if you only have ink pens or pencils that aren't colored shade dark and light making a design with small and large shapes that are circular beginning with one curve and going until you end the piece.

    I find coloring to be really relaxing.
    How else can you be creative??

    I like to write poetry... I used to be very good at it, but I find I have lost my gift. I am still okay but I can't express myself like I used to be able to.

    I was able to finish up a great paint-by-number I had worked on for (literally) years. It's a picture of a moose with Mount McKinley in the background. Very pretty.

    I find bead-work to be creative. Last Christmas I made my mom a rosary by hand. I thought I was pretty good!

    I have all kinds of craft stuff hanging around. I just haven't used it in a while. (sigh.)

    I am neither artsy, nor crafty.
    I enjoy reading.
    I enjoy gardening.
    Tomorrow's a tough day for me so I am going try to spend it out of the house, gardening & reading on the back porch.
