health insurance

Question for New Yorkers. I was thinking about switching from Oxford health insurance plan to the mid-level HIP plan. I can save a bundle. Is HIP just terrible though? Anyone have any thoughts, seen any rankings?

Running and severe nausea

I am in pretty decent shape (nothing amazing, but 5' 7" and 138 pounds which is normal) but find that I can't do much of ANY running without feeling horribly, horribly nauseated within minutes of finishing. I can lift and do pushups, squats, etc., but running is basically out of the question. Sometimes it's so bad I have to stop even though it's rarely more than 10 minutes. Since I'm not unhealthy or overweight, I'm pretty concerned about this. Why does running, in particular, make me feel so awful? Does this happen to anyone else? Should I be trying to push through it?

Battle of the middle-years bulge

Is this enough health coverage? is it even really health coverage?

Health Insurance question: My father is in his upper 50's and his wife is in her early 50's. They don't have health insurance, but they do have a "health cost sharing plan." I think it's hooey.

Why do I burp when I run?

Why do I always burp or feel like I have to burp when I go running? This happens even if it has been several hours since I last ate. It doesn't happen every single time, but probably 80% of the time. I like running, its just gross getting a taste of that yogurt you ate 2 hours ago when its 100 degrees outside. Anyone have similar problems? Anything you can do to solve this?

temporary colour blindness?

I woke up one morning, one eye at a time, with a view of my girlfriend's face. Through one eye, she looked a bit rosy in her cheeks and on her ear, a healthy-looking woman. Switching to the other eye, her skin was pale, and the blush was gone. Surprised, I propped myself up and looked at a red pillow next to my bed: one eye bright red, and through the other a washed out ruddy colour. My eyes seem fine now, but is that all in my head? What happened to my eyes that morning?
