Reminds me of a guy i worked with years ago. He had some kind of stomach condition that caused his breath to be quite intolerable. In fact when he talked to customers, they always took several steps backwards. I wasn't sure whether to laugh in anticipation what was about to happen or sympathize with...

Bad breath is offensive to me also. However, some people have medical conditions which can affect their breath.

I use the Smith machine for the standing calf raise only, not for squats or presses. I put two 45 pound plates on the ground directly beneath the bar, so i am standing on the weights (halfway on, halfway off) perpendicular to the floor. I increase the weight as i go. Sometimes if the machine is bein...

Someone correct me if i'm wrong, but it's my belief is that if you have strong legs, it would be beneficial to the bench press since you push with your feet to initiate the lift. As Stephen pointed out, w/o strong legs, upper body pushing strength has limited sports value.

Ironman covered it quite well. As far as me, I have persistent thoughts-some horrible, some amusing, but these thoughts invade the psyche at any time and w/o provocation especially when i want to sleep. I don't have the rituals that many people have (remember Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets) I ...

It's funny. My OCD is worse when i am conscious of it and trying to control it. But if i am working on something it is minimized. My OCD is definitely harder to deal with than my ADHD. At least with that, i can force myself(for a short time) to relax. I am like you in that i usually memorize things ...

I'm more concerned about my OCD. The most annoying thing is hearing the same song playing in my head hundreds of times a day. It's usually a song i like so it makes it easier to tolerate!

I wasn't diagnosed until i was 45. I tried many different meds at different doses. None of them worked well enough, so i deal with it w/o meds. I do allright. I also feel that meds if taken long term may have a detrimental effect on the body.

Yes, impulsiveness is a classic symptom of ADD.That's me.I tried medication, but the benefits were negligible, probably because i was diagnosed late in life and had already picked up some bad habits. Do you have ADD Jungledoc?

Let me offer another theory to social ineptness or lack of social skills. I have ADHD and have always struggled with social skills. Many times i will miss a social clue or will have a hard time understanding or following a conversation.Becuase of that i am shy to engage in conversation which doesn't...

My wife bought two- one for each son. Takes about 10 minutes to put together. Comes with an allen wrench, hex wrench, and a metal wedge which sets atop the door frame to prevent the bar from slipping. I tried it and it didn't slip, but if you are tall you have to bend your knees to allow full arm lo...

Thanks for the links. The Nike store has narrow widths which is usually a B width and just loose enough to cause irritation. I did see a few other NB shoes in AA though. I asked for other NB models at shoe stores (A Snail's Pace and Road Runner Sports, but they only showed me the NB 992
