I have a prescription for Valium to take as needed.
I only take it when I am overwhelmed by something going on to calm down.
I did not used to like it because it would knock me out.
Now it just calms me down when I feel like I am gonna lose it.
I take the 10mg, but sometimes only 1/2 of one.
I did give one ( I know, bad, bad, bad!) to a girl I worked with before when she was having a really bad day. She was crying because she had a miscarriage the day before and was at work really wanting to go home. Some stupid *ss (Hi Terrie!!
) kept saying she should stay and work to keep her mind off of it and she shouldnt be alone. I did not agree, but .... they wouldn't let her go home. Would you want someone forcing you to stay and work when you are that miserably upset. I thought she should be able to go home, take a nap and not have to deal with the demanding job she had to do.
Anyway, I gave her 1/2 of one and she got really tired and a little spacey from it. She was fine, but would've been much better if she werent THERE.
She had someone take her and pick her up from work.
