    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,

    If you could be any animal or bird, what would you be and why?

    I love all sorts of animals, but if I could be an animal I always thought it would be fun to be a river otter. They just look like they have a blast sliding down mud banks and gliding through water.

    If not a river otter, perhaps a bear. I don't think too many things bother bears, they sleep all winter, climb trees, eat berries - sounds good to me, ha.

    Anyone else??

    I would like to be a giraffe. I like the way they look, the way they run, and how they care for their babies. I don't like the way they slobber off that HUGE tongue but if I was a gifaffe, I would try to get that changed. LOL

    who's next?
    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.

    I think I would be a jellyfish.

    I like the idea of sliding unnoticed through the cold, deep waters of the ocean with all those tentacles. I would also be pretty feared. I could capture and consume prey at will.

    I would also make a delicious meal myself if cooked and seasoned correctly.
