Thanks Rusty2

I have had the numbness and tingling before, but only in my legs and feet. ...

Experimental drug shows promise in MS treatment

How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain

How Walking in Nature Changes the Brain

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/07/2 ... the-brain/

Brooding, which is known among cognitive scientists as morbid rumination, is a mental state familiar to most of us, in which we can’t seem to stop chewing over the ways in which things are wrong with ourselves and our lives.
