New Study Links Playing Youth Football to Later Brain Damage

The first of a three-night stand at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center...

Every few months I would go through a few weeks to months of delusions, hallucinations and mood swings usually resulting in me sequestering myself from church, school, friends or whatever else I was...
