It works very well. You’re going to get worked up thinking too much about it so the best thing to do is just focus on other things. It doesn’t help with the pain, just the nerves. The pain is the same but you’re not as worried about it so it doesn’t feel as bad. Although Valium is addicting you don’t have to worry about becoming addicted to it unless you have a whole bottle of it. If you are using it to help you get through a tough situation and not on a daily basis you don’t have to worry.
