I've recently begun running several times a week. During a 5-mile run the other day, I began experiencing pain in my left knee. Specifically, it feels a bit like a bad bruise below the kneecap on the inside of the leg, and the pain has continued for several days - especially when sitting for long periods of time, or even while walking. I want to keep running as I'm training for my first half marathon, but I don't want to further damage the knee if running will make the problem worse.
Has anyone had this experience? Am I ok to keep running through the pain? Are there treatments (brace, exercises, etc.) I can try to reduce or eliminate the problem?
My daughter has been targeted by a group of girls in her class and I have spoken with the school. She is a quiet girl and is so miserable.
It's not the kind of bullying that leads to tragedies, but just the relentless meanness and disrespect of daily put-downs and sniggers.
My hope is that she will find a way to make a friend or two and find a way to be less of a target. So I have found a couple of really good books andI would like to share them and also ask for advice.
The bottom of my toe is hard, swollen, and hot to the touch. I don't recall hurting it, and there is no mark of a bug bite. What could it be, and how can I relieve the pressure so it is not too sore to walk on?
I am going on vacation to Hawaii in a couple of weeks and I really have no idea what kinds of places are must-sees for my first trip. I am going to Honolulu and Maui. What should I plan on visiting or should I just know the quickest route to the beach from my hotel room?

My son had a pretty severe stuttering problem from the time he was 2 1/2 to the age of 5 1/2. It was the result of a traumatic event.
We tried a lot of strategies to help him pull out of it. When he was about to start school, I found a method that finally worked.
It's based on classic operant conditioning and is very effective for young children.
