Considering marijuana is still illegal in the States (despite it being prescribed in some states for some medical conditions), this is not something we can address here. You may want to discuss with your prescribing doctor. It's possible the Wellbutrin may need some adjustment and/or a further trial period and/or other treatments added.View Thread
I'm sure that one of our experts will be responding but, in the meantime, I wanted to encourage you to consider therapy to help you deal with all you are feeling about this issue. You need and deserve some support. And if you need help keeping yourself safe, please call a crisis line and let them help you. Suicide is never the answer.View Thread
The WebMD Magazine's editors are now collecting nominations for our 2012 winners. Please submit your entry by Friday, August 17. It's easy -- just go to our Health Heroes page (www.webmd.com/healthheroes ) to find the nomination form.
Once there, you can also read about past winners -- we choose about four to six each year, and all receive a check to donate to their favorite health foundation or charity. They also appear in both the November/December 2012 issue of WebMD the Magazine and digitially on WebMD.com and the WebMD the Magazine iPad app.
Who's a hero? He or she can be a doctor, nurse or patient who has in some way dealt with a serious health challenge, then given back to others in an inspiring way.
We look forward to reading your nominations!View Thread
Gil Kerlikowske, Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) will deliver a major speech at the Betty Ford Center Monday, June 11, calling on Americans to understand drug addiction as a chronic disease of the brain instead of a moral failure, and outline the importance of Federal, state, local, and community efforts to lift the stigma associated with substance use disorders.
Be sure to read some of the other discussions about this; they may help.
Also, you happen to be responding on a discussion which was begun many years ago and I'm afraid your post may be missed by others who could help. I encourage you to start a new discussion on the board.
To do that, hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you want) and Submit.
Well, do you even WANT to go sky diving? I'm not that afraid of heights but have no interest in sky diving, for example. Now, I do like roller coasters and zip lines.
Have you ever tried facing your fears, maybe starting off with smaller things that make you nervous but not absolutely terrified? The feeling of triumph can be amazing once you do.
For me, I'm getting better at standing up for myself when I need to. It's on ongoing process as I don't like confrontation or the consequences of someone being mad at me but sometimes it's necessary and/or sometimes it's a good idea to learn how to confront using humor.
