Need a new workout to get my hockey legs (and lungs) back!

I'm (stupidly) starting playing ice hockey after 20 years off the ice (I'm 33). After the first game last weekend, I'm apparently in far worse shape than I thought -- and need some ideas for new workouts to get my game on. [more inside]

What to say to an institutionalized friend?

In high school I was involved in a nerdy extracurricular activity that occupied most of my time, and when I graduated most of my friends went to school A to study our field and I went to School B. One the friends I made through this association has, I've recently been informed, checked himself into a hospital for mental health reasons. He had already decided not to go back to university this semester (we attend different schools, so I found this out second hand). He had had issues in high school, but it sounds as though things have deteriorated dramatically. He is a brilliant person, and my life has been better for knowing him. I'm going to send an email to a relative of his that I think can get it to him for me. What do I say? [more inside]

What is the cause of this muscle condition?

Diagnose this muscle condition; my physician cannot. For the last four months my fiancée has suffered from a so-far-unexplained muscle soreness. We are about to see our third specialist, as every doctor so far has drawn a blank. Before our upcoming appointment with the next rheumatologist, I thought it couldn’t hurt to post the question here. First I’ll describe the symptoms, then I’ll cross off the list all those conditions that various tests have shown not to be the cause. (more) [more inside]

Extremely minimal workout

My question is pretty simple. Is it possible to get definition and tone using only push-ups and crunches? I cycle everyday for cardio (and practicality), but I'm looking to work my upper body more without investing in a gym membership or weights. Basically I'm looking for a good toning/muscle-building workout using nothing other than my own body. If this is possible, does anyone have some good routines to suggest?

Thoughts on ribs showing in dog? (read full post before freaking out!)

So i'm trying to solicit some unbiased thoughts and opinions on the subject. A lab mix - probably greyhound or wippet, maybe even dalmatian, with some ribs showing, slight backbone showing, and super muscular. Dog is very active, hikes and runs, climbs 14,000 mountains in colorado, etc - all with no problem. Eats usually 2 to 3 cups of quality dog food, lately part raw too - on more active day will get slightly more food. Healthy or not? I know general consensus is you should be able to feel ribs but not see, but should that really apply across the board?

DC Dentist Recommendations?

I searched the archives and came up with two threads DC-wise, one recommending doctors in general and another with recommendations for cosmetic dentistry. The dentist I'm looking for is metro accessible (preferably NW DC) and has reasonable rates (completely out of pocket) for a standard cleaning and plaque removal/scaling. Thanks!

How do I find a good Psychiatrist in the Boise, Idaho area

How do I go about finding a good psychiatrist in the Boise Idaho area? I am a reasonably well-managed bipolar patient. I am not happy with the side effects of my mood stabilizer and am suspicious that depression is interfering with my life. I haven't seen a psychiatrist for about 3 years. My GP prescribes my medicines since I am reasonably well-managed. However, I just moved to the Boise/Nampa/Caldwell Idaho area and would like to start seeing a psychiatrist and seeing about trying something different. I was really lucky how I found my last psychiatrist through the recommendation of a counselor that I trusted. But I don't have any contacts in the area. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good psychiatrist in the Boise area? Or how have you/would you go about finding a good one? Thanks

Will hidden fatness hurt my love life?

I'm gay, new at dating, and kind of overweight (though not morbidly so -- say ~ 20/22% body fat), though my face doesn't show it. I'm afraid dates will like me, in part based on that deceptive face, then discover my fatness during a moment of intimacy, and be repulsed. Am I being paranoid?
