The packaging should provide instructions. But patches of any kind for any other purpose generally need to be applied to clean, dry skin. So after showering and drying would be better to ensure it stays on.

Last week my dog was officially diagnosed with cancer. She’s going to be 13, the cancer isn’t curable. She’s my first dog. I’m coming off of my own medical issues, I’ve always considered myself a strong person but I feel this is going to break me. I’m not handling it well and people who I’ve considered closest to me have let me down by not being there the way I’ve been there for them when they’ve needed the support in the past. I honestly don’t know how to navigate through this.

Question about dating and dating apps. M 🐠 here in my 30’s. Been working hard on getting in shape, lost 80 pounds since beginning of last year. Originally from the Midwest, I never had issues with dating or apps, but ever since moving to Los Angeles, like I rarely get any matches and haven’t gone on any dates. Like I like my look, have a nice buzz cut, grew out my beard, feel good about myself.

Why is dating in LA so hard? M 🐠 do you have a perspective? F 🐠 do you have a perspective? Thanks.
