Chino says:

I had my cheekbone fractured two years ago during a fight and ever since then whenever I go for a jog or run I get insane migraines and nausea. Any other types of exercise such as pull-ups, burpees, jumping squats and lunges, or jumping jacks–regardless of the level of intensity–do not trigger these symptoms. It sucks bc I'm an avid runner and the doctors have no solution but tell me to stop running

Another Mike says:

Society usually discards of men with brain injuries and they end up killing themselves. Can we work on men's mental health? That would solve a lot of problems women have with men.
