I'm looking for non-prescription alternatives to Adderall. Has anyone tried Adrafinil? Thoughts? Also open to more herbal/natural alternatives.

Yup, actually pretty experienced with it. It's effective but I don't recommend using it more than once a week. It'll lose its effectiveness.

Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO. He’s making me use that for my physical therapy and doctors appointments, and I just got diagnosed with something related to my I jury (not work related) that could qualify me for temporary disability. How do I approach this and can I get fired for this? I have to take care of my body! And he’s insanely rigid, cheap, stubborn, and at this point I don’t even think he cares about me. I’m a very hard worker!

Anyone else struggle to eat enough calories? My current diet plan has me set to eat 1600 cals/day. I can barely hit 1000. I am trying to lose fat weight/gain muscle and am eating a high protein x Mediterranean diet. I am SO full after each meal, considering water intake on top, I can't figure out how to get more cals in without eating calorie dense foods (which are typically less healthy). I am exercising on top so net cals is even less (which I probably need to stop until I can eat more).

I know it varies by severity of injury, but does anyone have experience with inguinal hernia surgery recovery time? I lift decently heavy and was wondering if I could get back to 100% after 6 months.

I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant and I don't feel any symptoms other than high body temp. Some people say I should feel lucky but I'm thinking what if it's chemical or I've heard of this thing call blinded ovum? I'm anxiously waiting to see my first ultrasound next week. Is it normal not to feel any symptoms right now?
