Anti-Anxiety Drugs on the Job
Benzodiazepines & Endogenous
Citation:   Humming Bird. "Anti-Anxiety Drugs on the Job: An Experience with Benzodiazepines & Endogenous (exp78363)". May 9, 2009.

Just heard Evan Wright, author Generation Kill, speak about taking Zanax before job interview at Hustler Magazine in his new book, Generation Kill. Funny for me, I took valium and klonapin to get through job interviews, too, before I learned how to relax by getting outside myself and observing the pleasure of being under intense scutiny, a benefit of living, a privilege of being. Not that I am at ease when I don't use sedatives, but I develop a weird detachment from assigning myself a quiet place (attentive to what comes through my senses) within a reality that I need not fear because I am party to its existence and co-author of its outcomes. Hired or not.
