Welbutrin

Welbutrin

I asked my ID for a recommendation on a smoking cessation and she suggested that i ask my PC for Wellbutrin. She said this was her “favorite” because its a stimulant that helps with depression/anxiety as well as a smoking cessation. I was wondering if anyone out there has ever taken this and what your experience was with it. Thankssss. Much loveeeee

Cleaning Reusable Face Mask

Cleaning Reusable Face Mask

For those of you who wear the reusable face mask and not the disposable, how do you clean your mask?
Do you:
1) Put them in the washing machine?
2) Wash them by hand?
3) Boil them?
4) Wash them in the dishwasher?
I have just been washing them in my washing machine, but today I decided to boil them on the stove top. Tomorrow I might try putting them in the dishwasher. So, how do you clean yours?

Very Hopeful!

Hopefully they’ll be able to modify this enough to deem safe for trial and eventually as a functional medicine.

What Programs Are There That Will Help With Housing And How Do I Get In Contact With Them?

What Programs Are There That Will Help With Housing And How Do I Get In Contact With Them?

I think I may end up being homeless soon as I live in a college apartment building where I have noticed issues with my vehicle, tampering, flat tires, etc. I have contacted police in which they will not help me and they tell me they do not see anything on cameras. I need secure housing and I do not feel safe. I feel I may end up taking my own life if I do not find a secure place to live. I cannot do this any longer. I do… read more
