X has always had problems with public speaking, although just about got through it at a younger age.
At about 20 X had an episode at work where he had to speak out infront of the company which wasn't a nice episode at all. On the spot, X's mind went blank even though he managed to mutter a few words out and just about finish the speech (was only a short one). It was at this point X realised he had a problem, and it needed addressing.
Over the next couple of years during team meetings at work (small, confined room), X's paranoia got to rediculous heights and X began to research and realised he suffers with panic attacks. These panic attacks would often cause X to miss the meeting making up excuses, calling in sick, etc.
During this time, X also joined university with the dreaded thought that somewhere along the way would come the big P word. Presentations were always something X feared although feared more than ever before as a result of the public speaking episode at work. So X did some more research and managed to obtain some Xanax, 30 x 1MG pills.
X had a presentation on Monday and although Sunday night X put the presentation together, X didn't have much hope for the Xanax, X didn't think even a miracle would cure this level of paranoia he had whilst being on the spot.
On Monday X took 1 of the Xanax in the morning, at about 10 AM (cause he had read it will settle X's stomach (it was doing cartwheels)). This really did make the day fly like a breeze for X, an hour before the presentation X decided to take another 2 Xanax to settle some nerves that were building for X's biggest ever phobia.
Shortly after, the time had came. X was called up along with his other 2 friends (group presentation) and the presentation commenced. It was a miracle. X confidenently stood infront of class and delivered his parts, infact, X went too far and ended up doing more slides than necessary lol, X wasn't bothered and X's friends weren't too bothered by that either .
All in all, Xanax is an absolute miracle, in the industry X is working in, he is pretty sure he will have to deliver alot of future presentations/speeches and looks forward to it all because of Xanax.
X just has to be disciplined with it now.
Please share your experiences with Xanax.
