  • I started running and can now do nearly three miles.?

    My question is, with winter nearly here with snow and ice, will running on a treadmill allow me to keep my endurance up the same as running outside? Running on a treadmill to me doesn't feel like it is as hard as running outside. Are the mileage accurate on a treadmill?

  • I am having trouble connecting to the internet with my mobile hotspot device from Verizon.?

    I am having trouble connecting to the internet through Verizon. When I do connect I lose the connection every so often. It says there is no internet access. I have trouble shooted with Verizon and even had a new device sent to me. Still same problem. Does anyone know if Verizon is having trouble with these Mobile hotspot devices? They are supposed to come check the area and the tower but haven't done so yet! My phones are from Verizon and they work fine at home. I also had a netbook with built in internet access and didn't have a problem when I used it. The problem started when I got a laptop and use this new hotspot device.

  • I need information on the bad cholesterol.?

    Last year my LDL was a little high (137). My doctor told me ways to reduce it. I watched closely what I ate and exercised now for over a year and it has dropped below to where it wasn't even measurable. All other numbers were in the excellent range. Is it dangerous to have too low of an LDL? My sister is telling me that it can be dangerous.

  • How effective is mace/pepper spray?

    I run/jog by myself at different times of the day, from very early morning and sometimes at dusk. Can mace really be effective in warding off an attacker? Even running with a partner in my opinion wouldn't help, because it seems in the recent rash of people being robbed on the street at gun point, they have always been with one or two other people.

  • What is destiny? Is everything in our life predetermined?

    If everything is destined to be, do we have any real control over our thoughts or what happens in our lives? Are the choices we make really not our own? What is the difference between fate and destiny? For instance, did we choose our marriage partner or was that person already chosen for us?

  • Can a person become overly sensitive to caffeine?

    I am searching for a reason for feeling the way I have been for the past year. Can caffeine act like a drug in some people? Has it been known to cause anxiety, racing thoughts, depression and things of that nature? I've always had a grip on life even though it has been rough, but the past year has thrown me for a loop. I'm wondering if it can be that I've developed some kind of sensitivity to caffeine. I do drink a lot of coffee and I know there is caffeine in some of the foods I eat. Looking for answers.

  • From what I've read, I don't think I have the typical signs of depression.?

    My symptoms are a racing mind, racing heart, feeling anxious, crying, feeling like I can't stay put in one place....like I want to run or run away from something, insomnia, tense, feeling overloaded. Like I'm not going to be able to handle the next problem that comes along. It used to be these feelings were just at night..Now they are all day long...During the day I am experiencing all these symptoms to where I almost went straight to the drs. Feeling overwhelmed by everything...Briefly....I have always had my sure of problems to deal with...on a constant basis everyday, but never felt like this, even though it was extremely hard to deal with, I dealt with it..Now, I don't know what is happening to me.I am having a difficult time explaining how It is making me feel. I feel like I want to jump out of my skin or just go away and detach myself from everything. Is this what you call depression? I don't stay in bed and sleep like most people that are depressed. I am busy all day and do what I have to do.

  • What is the best drug of choice that I can ask my Doctor about?

    For severe depression. Nothing that comes with the warning 'may cause you to be suicidal".I've had a small break for a month or so of the stress I am constantly having in my life....but, I know when it is getting ready to start up again. I can always feel it. With me getting older, I don't seem to handle it well, anymore. I don't drink or smoke. I really don't want to take any drugs, but I also don't want to end up in a hospital either. Is there any drug out there that sounds like it would suit my needs? I don't want anything that will make me tired or spaced out. I just want something that will help me cope and take the edge off of things.

  • Are there any lung exercises that would help with running/jogging?

    I just started running/jogging not that long ago. I can go about a mile and the second mile I jog/walk because I am out of breath. My legs don't get tired at all. It's the breathing that is slowing me down.
