Yes, it could cost you your job. I hope you pass the drug test.

As far as how to talk to your doctor, be honest with her that you want to try THC/CBD/whatever. She may be ok with it. Or not.

Just remember that whatever she tells you may not even be her medical opinion. She may not be able to prescribe you certain meds if you piss dirty without losing her license/job.

So what happens in the doctors office can be reported back to my job?

Maybe not directly. But your job can make you test at any time with no notice. So every day is a risk.

Yes. Habits are harder to break the longer you have them, plus you lose some muscle mass as you age which means you burn less. Not to mention hormonal shifts, including hypothyroidism, are more common as you age.

It’s not impossible or anything like that, but you have more working against you as you age.

I’ve been using tretinoin for almost a decade now, but I think my derm’s instructions were to use a small (pea-sized or even less) amount on my face every other day in the evenings until I build up tolerance, and then transition to every day. Even nowadays I’ll take a 2–5 day break from tretinoin if my skin barrier is recovering from something.

And use sunscreen! I like Eucerin’s daily SPF 30 formula in the morning, and I’ll apply Elta MD (pricey but worth it) sunscreen on top of that if I’m out under strong sun.

Which spf 30 do you use from Eucerin? They had a couple options when I searched.

I combine Eucerin’s “Daily Protection” formula (commonly avail. at drugstores in my area) with Eucerin’s anti-redness lotion (from Amazon) because my face is usually a little pink from mild rosacea.

It’s just such a dull topic for other. Tedious and boring.

If you want to talk about it, forums like this are a great option!

No.

Cellulite is normal and natural and you cannot remove it in a month (usually not ever as it is a result of how the skin tissue is connected).

You may be able to reduce the appearance a bit with weight loss, but one month doesn’t allow for much of that either.

The time may be best spent working on your mental health so you can focus on your glorious wedding instead of on your body.

Honor your hunger.

Buy little packs of your favorite sweets or whatever you’re craving and add it into your day. Every single day if that’s how often you want it.

Normalize it.

Vaseline.

If you need something in a stick, Blistex Simple and Sensitive (shiny) or O’Keefe’s unscented (matte) are both great.

Let your lawyer deal with this. This is above and beyond the legal decision-making expected of a board member.
