Music is a source of comfort and catharsis for most people, so we stocked our musical pharmacy with some tunes to cure your ailments. From appendicitis to a broken heart, check with us weekly for new musical prescriptions.

Ailment: Homesick 

Everyone knows that too much of a good thing is...too much. When you make that trip back home and spend one too many nights with the parents, you can feel like it's time to flap your wings again. But when it's been months since you've tasted your mother's cooking and the world is starting to get you down, fatigue sets in and you start to wonder if all your time away is worth it. You need to remember you're only young once and the world isn't compromising, so neither should you.

Drug Name: Spiromade Nolin Actonites

Active Ingredients: Bright wind chimes, the restorative chorus of vocalist Kelsey Bulkin, and melancholy pop beat.

Uses: To medicate your homesick heart with a reminder that you'll never let your parents down as long as you are chasing the hustle and burn, burn, burning the candle at both ends. 

Directions: Play in the mornings before work and in the evenings before play to encourage circulation and alleviate your homesickness. 

Inactive Ingredient: Play once more at rest and buy that ticket home for a visit.
